Abstract


Smart Portable Solar Light is a project based on a circuit obtained through the internet connection. A few modifications have been done to the original circuit; original circuit uses eight LEDs while this project only uses one main LED. The main source of this system is harvest form the sun. The sun’s radiation is converted to electrical energy that is supplied to a battery, which acts as a power storage for the system. Another set of batteries is used as the structure of the lamp is design to be portable.  At the detachable section of the lamp, there is a power point that can be used as a charger for small voltage devices such as mp3s not exceeding 5V. Therefore, this project is suitable to be used as a stand lamp as well as torchlight.
