Q:
Can I leave the solar panel with the bat47 diode connected to the batteries all the time without any over charging problems and have them connected to the fm radio kit via a switch.
Asked by: Dickie
A:

Thank you for your question, you can leave it for quite a while but if you keep overcharging the batteries it will not be good for them and you are likely to damage the batteries or battery cage. If you are discharging the batteries pretty regularly with the radio that should be fine though.

Q:
could i replace this solar panel with a smaller one to power the led?
Asked by: dan
A:
Hi Dan, Thank you for your question, you would need at least a 5V panel to charge the batteries on this kit anything smaller than this would not allow you to charge the kit. If you bypassed the batteries you would be feeding power directly to the LEDs and would probably not get the required current or voltage if you did so. You could potentially use a smaller set of batteries LEDs and Solar panel but it would not work well just changing the solar panel. Best Regards Cullen

Q:
If I want to power the stereo amp kit can I put 2 of these together? so wire the the solar panel in series and also do this with the batteries? to give me the 9V?
Asked by: Peter
A:
Hi Peter, Thank you for your question, in theory yes this should work to give you the 9V. The problem you might run into is the current supply to the batteries as this kit normally draws a lot more than the lights that are normally attached so you are likely to run through the battery fairly quickly. Best Regards Cullen

Q:
Hello, Is it possible to replace the lamp kit with the Low Inertia Solar Motor - 2230 RPM to build a solar powered car? Thanks.
Asked by: Kris Petitjean
A:
Hi Kris, Thank you for your question you could absolutely do this. The motor can run from 0.7V to 5.0V and draws 30mA so should work fine from these panels. Best Regards Cullen

Q:
I am looking to power a small submersible pump (3.5 - 9V 3W), which at the present has a usb fitting as the power, it has to have a battery back up and an on/off switch, will this kit work if I replace the lamp board with the pump ?. or will the pump need to be protected by a resistor. It is for a small working model of an irrigation system, please help.
Asked by: elizabeth gmir
A:
Hi Elizabeth, Thank you for your email, this kit should be fine and there should not need to be an extra resistor as the pump can be powered between 3.5V and 9V and the solar panel powered batteries would output 4-4.5V. Best Regards Cullen
