Solar panel question

by Ramjet1 on Sun Jan 30, 2011 1:30 pm

Don't no much about solar panels. I salvaged a good panel from a solar shed light. Puts out around 10.78v in full sun under no load. I'm sure I can hack something useful but my question is, how can I determine the output current from the cell. Would appreciate any pointers. The panel is around 12x7 inches.
