Hi nick, thanks for the reply.
If hitmans yard light solar panels are anything like mine, he is probably getting around 50 milliamps at 12 or so volts, that is if they are each 2 volt solar panels and if they are 2 volts, I'm not sure if his sla is charging much over 12 volts.
I am starting my single AA nimh cell test tomorrow to see if I can get a full charge in it, since before I was unable to with the two parallel AA setup, because I think one cell was taking most of the charge.
Also, after I perform more tests just using direct solar, like using the resistor per cell to balance the incoming charge from the paralleled solar panels, I want to try and run a joule ringer off the paralleled 2 volt or so output of the solar panels and use the flyback to try and charge paralleled AA cells.
We will see how it goes.
peace love light
