I have a portable solar panel that generates 21w of power, seen here: enter link description here . It has a USB connection wired into it that will accept a USB cord to charge small devices via USB. Separately, I have a Panasonic wall charger device (model BQ-CC75) seen here: enter link description here that will plug into a wall outlet to charge 1-4 rechargeable Ni-MH AA batteries. I would like to figure out if it is possible to find a way to connect the solar panel to the wall charger device in order to charge the AA batteries by solar. I know there are other devices out there that are designed to charge AAs from a solar panel, but I am wondering if the Panasonic can do it using an appropriate connection, and if yes, what that connection type might be.
So far, I have considered running this connection cable: enter link description here that would go from the solar USB connection to a cigarette-lighter plug, which is connected to a "wall outlet" style plug, such as this: enter link description here or this: enter link description here , and from there, plug in the Panasonic AA charger ... the hope is that this would charge 1-4 AA batteries successfully via solar.
- Would this approach work?
- If not, what would work?
- If it works, but there is an easier way, what would that look like?
Thanks so much in advance for your advice, and thanks again for forgiving me for not knowing enough to figure out the good and bad of this idea on my own, and for not knowing the proper terms to describe things.
