I have been building a few solar powered dudes lately and I constantly run into the same problem. Since I mostly work on them at night I find myself in dire need of sunlight. My work bench is lit with a neon desk lamp and it is utterly useless to test any solar circuit.
Can someone help me find the best possible artificial light source I could use to test my circuits?
I usually end up in the hallway, holding up my breadboard to catch the hallway lamp but that is far from ideal. I intend to make a lamp specificaly for that purpose but would like some advice on which kind of bulb to use.
