got the solar panels for my project

voltage at expected light level is around 1V per panel (rated to 4V)

once I get the supercaps I will experiment if the voltage floats up if the cap charges or if I need to find a boost circuit (I legit don't know and if any of y'all spoil me I will ban your entire instance, I *NEED* to experiment to find out)

it doesn't work

so I'm gonna shop around for some boost converters with ultra low voltage dropout. something like 0.5V or so.
