Thanks to Aaron Tanner for his permission to reproduce his Instrucables project here.

NB: This project requires a solid knowledge of electrical wiring, so make sure you know what you're doing before you get started.

Here's what you need:

  • Battery operated lawn mower
  • 12 volt solar cell
  • Wires (red and black)
  • Multimeter
  • Multitool (I used my leatherman)
