What would happen if a 2 volt solar cell was hooked through a diode into to a 3.6 volt nicad (3xAA)? would it charge it at all? just a bit but never fully? would battery deliver 3.6 volt after charging? If left long enough would it charge fully?

Basically, the charge curve of a nicad cell isn't particularly linear. Your length of time is more dependant on the amperage rating of your cell. There's a difference between a 1.4 Amp and a 2.2 Amp capacity. As a nicad charges the bulk of the cha

If i hook a 5amp/12volt solar panel to a 6 volt lead acid battery, would it recharge it? is it as simple as hooking the two together? thanks,

If you put a 6v battery on a 12v solar panel, it will charge the battery. It will also overcharge the battery and may damage the plates if you leave it on too long. The 'float' voltage for a lead acid battery (6v) should not exceed 7.2 volts for exte

The point is to charge the battery during the day, then completelty drain it at night by use of a light sensor.. I thought that due to the low current of the solar panel it wouldnt be a problem if i used a 6 Volt battery.. do i hook + to - or + to

Kel- My first impulse is to tell you to go ahead and try it your way. We all need to learn from our mistakes to find the right way. What you are proposing is called a "smoke" test. As long as you can keep the smoke inside the device, in your case th
