  • It's a more expensive, but the LiPoly charger can take the "small" solar cell as an input. A 5v step-up is all you'd need to power a 5V Arduino, but are you sure you want to run a solar project off of 5v?

  • I'd like to be able to charge it through an external 5v source, but it looks like the 5V usb pin goes to the charger's DC in and the USB charging pin is left unconnected. Isn't this going to draw more than USB is spec'd for? Is there any chance a future board rev is going to make a trace for a DC charging input?

No public wish lists :(
