Interesting and fun – World's Smallest Solar Powered Car Reviews

posted by ccyg8774 on 12/20/2009 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
Small
Needs no battery to play
Good for a demo for solar power and energy
Easy to use and play
Come with a nice transparent plastic box (so it won't run away by itself under the light, :-P )
Faster than I expected when under enough light
Cons:
Don't put it unattended and out of box. It may go away by it self with strong enough light, and you may lose it.
Other:
The solar cell need to be in a very large angle (70 degrees or more) to the sun to get enough light. In the winter (which has the smallest angle of the sun to the level ground), it may not work on ground without extra light.
This is not a problem of the car. This is because Winter is Winter, and Canada is in the north.
Bottomline:
It will certainly work better in summer, with more sunlight.
