Recharge a 9V NiMh battery with a Solar Panel / Constant Current Generator

Hi guys, if you enjoyed the previous post solar-powered Arduino board, you should keep reading this one as well to improve your solar power generator. In fact, with that setup the 9V battery would decay too soon: A NiMh (Nichel - metal hydroxide) battery must be recharged with a constant current generator, a solar panel … Continue reading Recharge a 9V NiMh battery with a Solar Panel / Constant Current Generator
