    Hello Forum,
    I am trying to connect a solar cell to an electronic device.
    I think I need a DC to DC converter and some capacitor to make sure that the output voltage remains constant (no fluctuations)....

    Should I by a voltage regulator?
    How would you approach this problem?
    thanks

    Define EXACTLY what the voltage/current profile is for your source (solar cell)

    Define what voltage and current you need for your load.

    That will define what possible conversion is appropriate
