I have a small solar panel that I would like to use for charging phones or other small devices.
Goal: 5v output
The panel has an Open circuit voltage of 1.8V, Short circuit amperage is 4A. (The amperage is closer to 4.5 but I don't remember the exact measurement)
Most of the off shelf converters I have found only get to 500 milliamps. I'd like to get, or make, a converter that could output 1000ma continuously.
Any thoughts are welcome.
