I am new to Solar and but I am a High School Science teacher. My question is in regards to a small scale hydroponic project that runs off solar.
I need to get the 6v 2w 350mA solar panel to power up a Koge air pump that draws 4.8v at 100-250mA. When I used alligator clip leads to connect the terminals and had a 100w incandescent bulb 5 inches from the solar panel...nothing happened.
What am I doing wrong? What do I need to add? Your help is GREATLY appreciated!
