  1. I have some questions I was hoping someone would help me work through. I am building an outdoor fountain that I want powered by a solar cell. Can I run the solar cell wires directly into the BLDC motor and have it operate only when sun is shining? The brighter the sun the faster the motor turns. Or do I need more circuitry to make it work? If I do hook up a small 3.7 v 2000 mAh Li Ion battery, I need a charge controller? And what? Pump Voltage VDC - 6.0 Nominal Current Draw: 0.27 Amps Power Usage: 7.0 Watts Solar cell Output Voltage: 0.5 volts (Vmax) Output Current: 3.5 Amps (Imax) Average Power: 1.75 Watts Is there any way to turn the motor on for 1 minute every hour on the hour? Miniature controller or driver of some sort? System as compact and concealable as possible. Any help out there For this one? Oh one more thing, is there a micro charge controller out there that would protect the battery when it was full by dumping the load into some LED’s or something of that nature?
