What can I use this cell for?
Power your creation from the sun. Use a renewable power source by connecting this cell to a storage device or motor. Connecting is easy just solder wires onto the connector pads on the back of the cell. The crystalline solar cell is finished with epoxy resin making it water resistant. This cell can produce up to 3V and 50mA - typically in the UK you will get approximately 15mA. With its compact size of 60mm x 60mm this is a great solar panel for mounting inside a project box or at just 11g using on a solar powered car.
Connect more cells in series to create a higher output voltage or parallel to create a higher current. Be aware that the more cells used the larger the variations produced by different amount of light will be.

Can this be used to charge a standard 3V lithium battery without a regulator or will it over charge, does it require a special re chargeable  3V battery?
