Solar candle system

I’ve been talking with my friend Steve Aplin recently about the Occupy movement and the Ottawa phenomena. He happens to have an apparatus for collecting and storing solar energy and then using it to power a light bulb.

He brought it into the lab since it seems to have stopped working.

I checked the voltage on the gel cell and it suggested that it was toast. So I’ll order another battery and we will try and get this thing in operation.

Perhaps it can help.

If it works, I’m sure Occupy can use it to light their way.
