Best way to run feather off of solar panel

by Z3d on Thu Aug 08, 2019 3:22 pm

So, I've been brainstorming my next project, which will be a modular garden monitoring system using LoRa. The garden is nowhere near an outlet, so I planned to power it off of solar. each "node" will be inside a small weatherproof box, and will have a 2000mah (or bigger) battery. It will need to power a Feather M0 LoRa with an adalogger wing, a OLED wing, as well as a few small sensors (haven't decided which ones to use yet.) I should note that the OLED wing will not be displaying anything most of the time.

My questions before I start prototyping are:
1: How do I power the feather off of the solar panel and battery?
And 2: What sized panel do I need? Should I have a bigger battery?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
