I would like to make a more reliable nightlight for my daughter. I was using cheap solar string lights but they just don't last long enough or get enough sun on that side of the house.
So I've started with 2 sets of cheap solar led string lights, one with 10 led's and a 300mah 1.2v AA battery and the other with 20 LED's and a 300mah 1.2v AAA.
My question is if they were cut off at the solar panel, could they then be powered from a 5v 350ma ex-phone charger? Series or parallel?
Would also like to use one of the panels for as a daylight switch if anyone could explain how that works and if its pretty basic with the parts I will now have spare.
