Feather Hazzah Esp8266

Good day,
I want to thank Lady Ada and all you folks over at Adafruit.
My question: can I hook up a solar panel to the Vin and it charge the 3.7v polymer battery as well as power the processor.
Curious I want to make a remote weather station and thought it will work since it has the on board battery connection. Thank you

@goodwin3973,

You will want to use a device like our solar charger to manage the panels voltage fluctuations and battery charge.

Take a look at the guide for how to hook it all up.
