Solar panel for the Arduino board with battery charger: More power sources
This Arduino board module, equipped with a solar panel and a Li-Ion battery, can power your Arduino project in two ways: either by connecting your Arduino board to the module and the module to its solar panel; or by connecting the Li-Ion battery to the solar module then the solar module to your Arduino board via a pair of 5 V wires. You can charge your Li-Ion battery from the solar panel or from a USB cable connected to your computer. Difficult to run out of power under these conditions!
Arduino solar module: For your outdoor autonomous projects
Once charged, the Li-Ion battery has a capacity of 2,300 mAh – i.e. plenty to let you enjoy your creation for several hours. And even if it needs charging, you can still use solar power to supply your project thanks to a 3 W solar panel, which will provide your Arduino with a voltage of 5 V. The sun is a real ally to little geniuses!
Technical specifications of the Solar panel for the Arduino board:
- A 3 W solar panel supplying a voltage of 5 V.
- An Arduino-compatible solar module
- A 2,300 mAh Li-Ion battery (to be charged for 13 hours before first use)
