Q When I use a multimeter, I can read a fairly healthy voltage from the solar panel. However, I don't seem to have any discernable current showing. Why is this?
A Hi Gary, the current cannot be read. Current is drawn by what you have connected to the solar panel to be powered. Current draw can be measured but not directly with the probes of the meter in parallel as the current is measured in series. I hope this helps.

This is an ideal power source which I bought for radio or any 3v application. You get lots of cables with it and on testing it worked perfectly.
