I'm creating a weather station and want the station to be completely power independent. I'm using the Arduino Fio (https://www.arduino.cc/en/pmwiki.php?n=Main/ArduinoBoardFio) and have estimated the power requirements of the station to be an average of 273 mAh / day with a max load of .06A. I'm pretty sure I'll use the 850 mAh battery (https://www.sparkfun.com/products/13854) but need to know if a solar panel will work to charge the battery. Based on my current home location, I have about 3 hours of good sun per day during the winter.
The Arduino Fio has a Mini USB that seems like its sole purpose is to charge the battery but will a solar panel work or is the Fio designed to have that be a more regulated power supply? If so, will this 2W Panel (https://www.voltaicsystems.com/2-watt-panel) be compatible with the Fio to charge the battery and suite my needs.
Thanks for the help
