In order to charge a battery using solar power, you need several parts: a solar panel, a rechargeable battery, and a “charge controller” to control the power coming off the panel so it doesn’t damage the battery.

Since most of the parts were sold separately, I figured out what you need for an all-in-one plug-n-play kit. I chose a large solar panel to maximize the current that can go through this particular charge controller, 1.5A.

This is a general purpose solar panel kit that can supply 5V at up to 1.5A current draw.

YES, this is a kit that INCLUDES a solar panel and a compatible rechargeable battery, and the means to connect them. YES, this is a large solar panel that can supply up to 1.5 amps of current.

The board has 2 outputs, a charge port for connecting a battery to charge, and a load port, which is limited to 4.4V.
