Solar panel voltage and current in direct, 50% and 25% light?
They may be useful for simple BEAM robots
Planning in my head of how to go about doing some Robots 101 workshops
from BEAM up to something more dedicated.

I have a policy on garden lights: Never buy ones with a window that has
less than 70% coverage of solar panel.
Otherwise they simply can't soak up enough power to do useful
illumination unless you're on the equator.
Can someone with an account ask how much actual solar panel there is?
