Parallel panels and lipo charging

by gregarious2 on Thu Feb 03, 2011 2:20 pm

Iʻm interested in using three of the 2 watt solar panels in parallel with one Lipo 73833 charger for an outdoor project. ( I need to charge a 2400maH LiPo battery while running a 66mA load 24/7 ) One or more panels may be subject to occasional shading. Should I use a series diode with each panel?
