This is the first outside test, with the device angled very low to the ground due to the northerly latitude and the fact that the sun just seems to hover on the horizon. Basically, the whole of December and January is pretty much useless for solar power where I live. Hopefully, the device can capture just enough photons to survive the long, cold night.
