Solar-Mp3-Speaker

Solar Mp3 Speaker

Some time ago I bought a nice little cubic speaker with volume control and internal batteries.
So I decided to combine the speaker with another two gadgets I had lying around:

Old Mp3-Player

Old solar garden lamp


I took apart the solar garden lamp and used the solar cells as a powersource for my old
Mp3-Player. I took apart the old Mp3-Player,too. All buttons were re-located and connected through thin wire. And this is what the result looks like: 
a fully functional solar powered portable Mp3-Player with speaker:


And here you can see the Mp3-Player integrated in the speaker :
I added an extra solar cell to improve the loading process


This is a simple schematic:



Here a full view of my new gadget:
