Testing the Miller Solar Engine (MSE) setup. Works but there is not a lot of energy being pushed into the motor. You can see the black tape on the motor moving but it doesn’t last long and feels weak. The lamp here is simulating quite full sunlight.

Below is the testing of a new vibrating motor. Set up is this:

  • solar cell with embedded MSE
  • 1381U voltage trigger
  • PN2222 transistor
  • 3/6800 capacitors run in parallel at C2
  • 1/.22uf capacitor at C1

Same setup below, except for replacing the .22uf cap with a 2.2uf
