  • Recommend source for small PV cells?

    I am wanting to prototype a landscape light but am having trouble finding a source for the photovoltaic cells I need. My project is based on the circuit here. I am looking for 2V 100mA cells, preferably small. I've managed to find all the other parts online, but the sticking point is the solar cells. If I can't find them at a good price, the whole project is off.

    I'd appreciate any help.

      You want sealed panels, not individual cells. Trying to seal cells and solder joints from the weather is a fools game. Factory sealed panels.
