  • I found a note at http://tinyurl.com/SolarSuperCap, that discusses using the TPS61200 for charging super-caps from solar panels. Looking forward to trying it out.

  • Could this be used for charging a 5V 3F Supercap from a set of low voltage (1.89V Max) solar panels? I’m trying an energy harvesting project and am hoping to fully charge the capacitor. Would any circuitry be needed between to converter and the capacitor to limit the input current/protect the boost circuit from feeding what will basically be a short circuit when the cap is fully discharged?


No public wish lists :(
