Build a small solar powered, battery operated LED bedside light? Answered
Firstly, I am a mom of boys, who want to build their own stuff. I am a nurse/midwife, so very knowledgable about many things. Electronics is not one of them! But I'm willing to learn and find help for them.
the store I will be using is www.rabtron.co.za as we are in South Africa.
This is the light my son wants to use for this project. http://shop.rabtron.co.za/catalog/module-samsung-5630-chip-leds-plastic-white-p-6957.html
He will need about 4m of wiring to run it to the solar panel just outside his room.
What would be the best components for him to use, - rechargeable battery, solar panel, switch, and any extras that I don't know that I need.
Also, if he does not use solar power, what battery configuration would work best?
Thank you for taking the time to help us. We hope to be tackling many projects in the future.
