Use a solar panel to power your RaspberryPi

Julian Sarokin in his website posted a small video on how to use a solar panel for powering a raspberry pi.  It is a very simple guide and and it misses a lot of stuff but if you want something quick it will give you the idea. For sure there are other more efficient ways to achieve a better result but they involve electronics and soldering knowledge. The parts that Julian used:

Solar Panel (6w, 2V):
DC / LiPoly Charger:
LiPoly Battery (3.7V, 2500mAH):
DC Power Adapter (2.1mm):
Powerboost 500 (5v USB @ 500mA):
