What we’re looking at is one of the first interesting ‘other half’ mods for Jolla Phone. This is a small project that ended up with a solar panel bit on the back of Jolla phone.
I remembered last night that I had solar panel in my scrap box. The size was perfect for Jolla and a quick test proved that it can be used to charge Jolla too:
- voltage is about 6 V (measured with multimeter)
- panel outputs 40-80 mA under a lamp (measured with multimeter)
I haven’t seen sun in a month or so here in Finland so the test was performed under 70 W halogen, distance ~10 cm.
I have to test the Solar Half more, but it indeed seems to be working rather nicely
Cheers Janne for the tip!
