How can I make solar powered lights for a table?
My new apartment has rooftop access that I would love to take advantage of. My idea is obtain a glasstop outdoor table and adhere small solar panels underneath the glass. These panels would be wired to either LEDs or white christmas lights that could be turned on at night after the solar panels have charged the batteries. I have limited background in electronics and solar cells. What do I need to be cognizant of when tackling the project? Any helpful hints, pointers or reference material that I should know or be consulting?
