Here's a solar & Arduino project that may be of interest to the group. Lady Ada calls it a "Portable solar charging tracker".  The functions are:
  • Portable! Its hard to test solar panels inside
  • Ability to log to an SD card for long-term data analysis (to be added later)
  • Keep track of the solar panel voltage
  • Keep track of the battery voltage
  • Keep track of how much current is going thru the panel to the charger

Note, this project is not a solar-powered datalogger.
