Solar USB Kit 2.0

Teach any child or student the power of solar energy by building a USB solar charger!

  • Build time 30 to 60 minutes
  • Suitable for grades 8+
  • Requires basic soldering knowledge
The finished charger is capable of charging small electronic devices. Two rechargeable AA batteries, that when soldered to the solar panel, create a charging circuit that allows solar energy to be stored in the batteries. A Baltic Birch enclosure houses all of the internal parts and is held together by screws. We recommend painting or staining your enclosure to add a personal touch to it.

Note: Additional USB Cable not needed. It's an option in case you need one. When in doubt use the USB cable that came with your gadget.

Ordering information: Parts include USB Charging Circuit - works with all iPhone and iPod models, as well as most other phones and USB gadgets; 6V 80 mA Solar Cell; 3 AA Holder; 3 Rechargeable AA Batteries @ 2600 mAh; Toggle Switch; Wire; and Laser Cut Enclosure with Screws.

Items Needed: Soldering Iron; Double-sided Foam Mounting Tape; Screwdriver; Wire Stripper or Cutter; and Hot Glue Gun.
