Arduino Regulated Light

Solar Powered LED/Ultracapacitor Arduino Regulated Light

This instructable primarily shows how to control the charging voltage from a solar panel to an energy storage device (capacitors in this case). I showed how to construct the light previously http://www.instructables.com/id/Human-Powered-Light-from-my-book-Doable-Renewab/ Step 1: This solar panel can produce up to 18 volts, but my capacitor bank should never receive more than 15 volts.Β  I …

Lithium Battery Solar USB - iPhone - Arduino Charger

Lithium Battery Solar USB – iPhone – Arduino Charger

One of the most fun and useful projects on instructables is to create your very own solar USB/ iPhone charger. They’re not overly difficult to make, nor are the parts overly expensive or hard to find. For the most part they do a rather good job of charging up small gadgets. Mostly. The big flaw …

Arduino Solar Cell Tester

Arduino Solar Cell Tester

When I’mΒ building Solar Shrubs and other solar-powered creations, I often scavenge cells from various off-the-shelf devices such as solar garden or securityΒ lights. ButΒ these cells areΒ rarely labeled as toΒ their voltage, current, and powerΒ output. So it’s off to my bread-boarding station. First, I put each cell under a lamp and connect it to my multimeter to get …

Arduino Solar Shield

Arduino Solar Shield – A DIY solar source for your projects without waiting for PCBs

This instructable is a basic version of Bley Joel’s (“It’s nine o’clock on a Saturday, the regular crowd shuffles in”) Solar Shield, and it should work for most arduinos.Β  I’ve tested it with SparkFun’s Arduino Pro, and the new Leonardo. Myself and the other Solar Pocketeers* are actually waiting for a new set of PCBs …
