OLPC Solar Charger

The OLPC Solar charger started working this morning, the 8W solar panel started charging the OLPC without an issue. The power controller which regulates the power input to the OLPC is simple enough to be assembled with locally available electronics.

The OLPC solar charger is developed at BWB Center of Social Innovation. Keep watching this space for more updates on this project.

Power Controller connected to OLPC 8W Solar Panel


  1. Sun powered computers, imagine the possibilities... A great way to go!

  2. Can you tell me about the power controller, why it is essential, and how to assemble it.
    It doesn't appear that Richard Smith from OLPC in his utube demo uses one.
    I wish to run an xo laptop directly from a 10 watt solar panel.
    Thanks, this is very very important to me.
