Solar Powered Jack-O-Lantern

Pcapelo has a pretty simple and easy way to make solar powered jack-o-laterns, he writes – “Lately I have had much interest in working with solar cells, because of this I initiated a project, and to be able to test it, I decided to create this lantern with a pumpkin. Solar energy always fascinated me and what we have here is a step by step on how to construct one jack-o-lantern using rechargables batteries and one solar cell. ..I wanted to have a “lantern” in my garden but I didin’t want to have that to install any eletric wire in the garden. In the next steps you will be able to see the result of this idea.” Thanks Tom! – Link.
