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): https://www.adafruit.com/products/200
