    gardel lamp solar cells voltage and current

    Does anybody knows what is current and voltage from solar lamp for house garden.

    They have one diode and two or one 1,2V 600mAh battery.

    I supose that cells can give 50mA at least, but i need voltage.

    Its very cheap 1,5eur is whole lamp.

    Its nice to put solar cell in some project to get autonomy.

    I will buy few and try.

    Re: gardel lamp solar cells voltage and current

    To charge one battery typically takes 4 solar cells. Two go to overcoming battery voltage as a start.

    I have a garden light that has two AA batteries. It has 8 solar cells.

    50mA is a reasonable current output, in order to charge a 600mAH battery pack during daylight. In summer anyway.
