homemade solar panel

you can buy cells on ebay, and solder them into the panel size you need ( there are tons of places online that are just dying to sell you instructions, just google DIY SOLAR PANELS or better yet, click on one of the ads that appear on this page)

another option is to join your local chapter of freecycle (www.freecycle.org) and place a wanted add for solar lights and simply salvage the solar cells from them. it's amazing how many people throw these things away instead of replacing the batteries
