Now I have been browsing google for a while and can not get a straight forward answer...maybe my google skills suck, but I have seen loads of schematics for a "solar charger for super caps" but not an answer to the basic question...
Can I attatch a 5.5V super cap to a 5V solar panel without killing it? Also a diode on the + line to stop current feeding back to the panel once the panel voltage dips below the cap voltage.
Does the cap keep pulling current and slowly increase in voltage till it pops? Or will the cap stop drawing power and the solar panel will just waste any light it is getting though heat on its own internal resistance?
