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<br/><br/>

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<br/><br/>
