Question:

Could this be used (with a diode) to recharge a 9v rechargeable battery in your mono amp circuit? Thanks

    You could in theory use a solar cell to charge a battery. To charge a 9V battery you would want to us 2 5V solar cells, https://www.kitronik.co.uk/3608-50v-130ma-polycrystalline-solar-cell.html connected in series along with your diode. This will drop the voltage from 10V’s to around 9.3V’s, and depending on the capacity of the battery would depend on the length of time it would take to charge.

Question:

Hi I have a dummy house alarm box on my shed, a solar panel charges 2 x 1.5 batteries to get 2 LED's to flash through the night, it works well but in the winter doesn't get enough light to flash the lights all the time, I was thinking of upgrading the solar panels and I could actually squeeze 2 of these (3.0V 100mA Polycrystalline Solar Cell) onto the alarm, this would be much larger than the one fitted, so if your still awake my question is would they need wiring in series or parallel? and should doubling up help create more charge for the battery? Thanks

Question:

Given a good sunny day in southern England in the Summer, what mA could I expect to get from the 3.0V 100mA solar cell. I'm designing a small solar powered model aircraft/glider, using a kitronik 3v motor. regards

    The maximum that can be outputted is 100mA, however this requires direct and constant sunlight. You will likely measure less than this depending on the intensity of the sun.

Question:

Hi, Can I connect that safely to a e-textile project (by fixing it on the frame of the textile picture)? Could it provide enoough energy for 5 or more LEDs? Can it connect with an Arduino device? Thanks, Melanie

    You would need to connect the solar cells to some rechargeable batteries these would then be connected to the Arduino and LEDs. You would also need to use a diode to stop the batteries discharging through the solar cell when it gets dark.

Question:

Dear Sir, I want to use this cell to light up a light bulb, but how pls? What size Lithium battery would I need and what would I connect to what to light up my ordinary old fashioned light bulb, please?

    Ordinary light bulbs will only run from alternating current, batteries supply direct current and as such you wouldn’t be able to create this circuit.
