  • Hi Fred where did you buy the solar cell you used?

  • Hi Drmn4ea I have found your Blog and post very helpful on this subject and wanted to know if you could confirm my idea , I myself want to create the same power source for low consumption ICs but with one difference , …Space or should i say the lak off… I want to use the this solar Cell http://www.sparkfun.com/products/9962 and this Piezo http://www.sparkfun.com/products/10293 both connected to the input of this energy harvester with a Super cap in parallel and output connected to the max 1555 battery charger chip. charging a coin cell 47Mah 3v battery. all of this in a space no bigger then the energy harvester it self. of cource i will need to redesign PCB for it but though id ask if you have similar product planned ? I want to think of it as a opportunistic battery charger rather then power supply .

    all thoughts are welcome . sorry for my English , not my mother language
