Re: Regulator
I doubt it. An extra volt shouldn't harm any lithium charger. I looked at several chips that might be susceptible, but all were at least 6V max rated. And if there is a diode in line, it drop...

Re: Steripen solar
Lots of things to consider. The wallwart is rated for 1000mA = 1 Amp. I doubt the solar panel puts out one fifth of that. The Steripen may require more current than the panel provides. You ju...
