  • Makes sense to use a wall wart indoors, but the battery setup would be handy outdoors. Others have used this setup with a small solar array input. Just add a bit of code to throw an alert if the battery gets too low (the shield has a 'fuel gauge') and it should be pretty user friendly.

No public wish lists :(
