My new book, DIY Solar Power, is the culmination of years of work and experience with electronics, batteries and – of course – solar power. I wrote the book with the needs of multiple audiences in mind, including those that are just beginning to enter the world of solar power and those that have some prior experience but desire a deeper understanding of the subject to apply it to their own current projects. There are so many interesting and useful ways to employ solar power in your own gadgets, and I covered as many as possible in my book. Read more here.
