    Solar-Powered Arduino Uno

      Hi guys, I'm doing a arduino uno project recently. And i was wondering if i can use a solar charge controller to power my arduino?

          I recently did a setup for my raspberry pi with mine I have a 200ah battery bank with it and only a 20w panel but with its only 8w usage on the pi its still able to charge the batteries up fully during the day until I get a bigger panel then on to adding more things.  so if there is no usb on the controller, a simple  you can put 12v to it tho but might consume more power and I would watch the power usage on it. or run 12 - 5v stepdown.  if able to run off the 5v you might be better but thats only if using a uno.  personally I would run at both and see which runs with less power consumption.

            Yes, you'll just need to use one with the appropriate voltage output and a battery for charge storage.
