In 2020, I want to work on a new electronics project involving solar. I think a durable, outdoor solar lamp would be interesting. It would need a solar panel, a charge controller, a battery, and a lamp. I want to make a yard lamp that runs all night using energy it acquired charging all day. It seems doable, if I can find the parts necessary and the information about the electronics.
I want to build the project in some computer-aided design program first, confirm that the components are compatible and sized properly, then build the board and installation box on my bench.
I’ll update this page as I find he right parts.
