captain's log entry 2010.8.21
- killed a MBR3040 diode probably the output one
- while it lasted, i noticed the forward current is not interrupted while in between "kicks", so this is effectively the BJT boos variant specimen I posted earlier in my 6er issue?
while this really maxxes
up the the harvest off the PV, it really seems to kick the diode in the pants?
- while it worked, it ran as high as 2A continuous and as high as "5A+" amp-meter needle swing.
- it's a flaw of my setup I can kick only from more than 12V, but I tweak this later down to 5V
