This schematic has a few functions to this circuit. This circuit takes voltages starting from 4V to a max. of 13V. It was an open source project I found online. I've redone this board's schematic. But when it came to de PCB design I kinda lost it. I got as close to sorting the components on the board, but I didn't know where to start connecting wires or how. I'm taking a little break, but if anyon...
Solar system power for esp8266 device like weather sensor. You need 5V 0.15W solar panel and small li-po battery for example 200mAh. Zener diode stabilizes voltage on 4.3, schottky diode give 0.15-0.2V voltage drop because 4.3V is too much for li-ion battery and prevents lekage current from battery. You can use panel also like binary(0/1) light sensor.
