On 6th May'20 I blogged about the characteristics of a solar cell on a sunny day (Solar Cell On A Sunny Day ). Inspired by the Evaluation Kit for Epishine Light Energy Harvesting Blog by Jan Crumps (Solar Energy Harvesting with Epishine Flexible Solar Cell - Pt 1: intro ) and the fact that it is 34 C outside at the moment so I'm not going to be doing any path laying or gardening today, I thought I would repeat my measurements of a solar cell to see if there was any difference on a really sunny d ...

My plan is that eventually I will never need to go into the loft again as it requires a certain amount of flexibility and strength to get in and more importantly out! and ...
