Hello. I would like to make a garden solar lamp that automatically turn on when the sun goes down. I tryed first with a transistor s9013 npn (seen on youtube), but it restricted the current, i suspect because of the internal resistance of the transistor. I decided to try the use of an Op amp as comparator, with a low internal resistance P channel Mosfet. I don't have much experience with these components, and the best way of learning is trying right? So see below my circuit. My problem is that it seem to work fine when the battery is full but the solar charging doesn't seem to be very efficient (the charge light does turn ON) and the battery looses it's charge fast, leading to a weired blinking LED. would anyone see a problem with my circuit explaining that? thank you very much for your help Best Damien
