Solder a garden light (manufactures code 1034) that switches on when it gets dark.

The solar cell is waterproof as it has been resin encapsulated, but the rest of the kit requires a waterproof enclosure (not included) to be left outdoors. What can I learn from this kit?
This kit is a great way to learn about sustainable energy sources, as it gives you a look at all the components that make up a solar light. Learn to solder resistors, capacitors, LEDs, inductors and diodes, and see how they connect into a working circuit. This kit requires soldering
