Power intake will be from solar and testing it yesterday showed power fluctuations from 5 volts dc .85 amps to 3.5 volts .4 amps. due to clouds or more important its a non tracking system. The charging circuit I am using uses a chip that is only good until 5.5 volts. Can someone suggest or post a simple circuit that limits voltage (with little waste) to 5.5 volts maximum and controls two leds (one red and one green) - the green led will stay lit if the voltage stays above 3 to 3.5 volts and switches red if the voltage drops below 3 or 3.5 volts (haven't decided on a ceiling or floor voltage). Thanks!! Looking for a low voltage circuit option as the solar panels and charging unit will basically be powering the circuit.
