I have attached the following a 5v 10w solar panel with a usb output to my kit;
It is working great with the kit charging quickly and running right through the night. However, when light starts to appear and the light sensor gets to about 500lux the battery charge seems to suddenly drop by about 30% before starting to charge again. The following graph should help explain;
This is showing Battery (dark orange) v Light (yellow) over about 3 days.
Has anyone got any ideas what is going on? It doesn’t make much sense to me to get a large battery drop just as it starts charging.
I’ve been playing around with the API as well. Very well done SC team. Keep up the great work.
