Hey guys Im building a bot that uses a solar panel to charge a back up battery pack. Im using a 12V solar panel with a 4 pack of AA nimh batteries which add up to about 5.2V max. Im using a diode and a linear regulator for 5V and I might put in a schottky diode on the output of the linear regulator for the battery. If I had another ADC to monitor battery voltage to remove it when they are fully charged, would this be an effective way to charge my batteries?
