Description

The solar charger is a stackable shield to Arduino compatible platforms, enables adaptive battery power and act as energy harvester for in-field charging. You may use various batteries that has the voltage of 3.0V-4.2V to shift up for 5V output, or put on Li-ion battery and solar panel to form an autonomous sensor unit. The maximum current provided by the board can get up to 600mA. An usb connector is also useful to charge the battery.

 

Features:

  • Output Disconnect

  • Short circuit protection

  • 3W Output Power when connecting battery

  • Continuous Charge Current Up to 900mA

  • Battery status indication ( Red : Charging , Green: Charged )

  • Micro-USB Connector

 

Specification:

  • Battery input voltage: 3.0~4.5V

  • USB input voltage: 4.75~5.25V

  • Solar input voltage: 4.8~6V

  • Maximum Output Power(with battery): 3W(600mA@5V)

  • Ripple voltage:<100mV @ 500mA

  • Dimensions: 68*53mm

What versions of Arduino will this stack onto? Is the shield compatible with both R2 and R3 footprints? https://learn.sparkfun.com/tutorials/arduino-shields#installing-headers-preparation

what happen 1. if LiPo battery connected opposite? (+/-) 2. if solar pannel voltage is lower than 4.8V 3. Finally, why whole kit get hotter when LiPo battery connected?(untouchable)

1.The solar charger shield is designed to protect any potential short circuit. However care must be taken to avoid any such situations. 2.It's OKEY,but it is recommended to use solar pannel with solar input voltage:4.8~6V 3.Electric heat,take is easy

I accidentally connected the battery with inverted +/- because the connection was inverted. I noted that smoke leaved near to the battery contact and that light don't turn on not more. Did I damaged the shield?

- What is the power consumption (in mA) of the solar shield board when there is no solar panel connected and using the shield to supply power to Arduino by 3.7V battery? We measured about 40mA current. - We are using solar panel to charge the LiPo battery. After a few days, the battery ran out of power. Would your Solar Charger Shield wake the Arduino up when there is sun (sunny day)?

What solar panel and battery would you recommend for this? wiki page says to not run the shield at higher than 5V but the lowest voltage panel I can find is a .5W one that could output as high as 10V: https://www.seeedstudio.com/0.5W-Solar-Panel-55x70-p-632.html

Hello, as for the battery, any 3.7V lipo battery is fine, but we don't have battery here. The panel you had memtioned is ok. Thanks.
