12 Volt Solar Battery Charger

Georgia Said:

I am going on a week long mtn. bike tour. Wondering about schematics for solar digital camera battery charger?

We Answered:

I think you're going about this the wrong way. Instead, simply get a cigarette lighter output for your solar array.

Then, get a cigarette lighter adapter for your camera battery charger. Plug the charger into the lighter adapter and you're set.

Example here:

The reason you're going to have trouble with your plan as described: Li-ion batteries require specialized circuits to properly charge. Otherwise, overcharging them can cause them to overheat, burst, or even explode or catch fire.
