Solar POWER! For my PIC and Nokia stuff

Solar Power PIC

Wandering around HK bored, I stumbled apon a shop selling an array of solar cells, I picked up a fairly large one for $40 hk and connected it up to my pic+3310lcd project. Bam, up it comes. Im going to put in a bit of power regulation and a cap to smooth things out, but the solar panel easily generates enough power for the large PIC 18LF2520 and the Nokia 3310 LCD.

Now I can play with it endlessly without worrying about destroying the environment with used CR2032 cells…
