Hi guys, I"M thoroughly a newbie in the maker world.
Back in the day I would go to radio shack and look at their components and realized today they still sell off their site. While they were expensive and necessarily junky, is there a site similar you all visit as a go-to?
I am mentally designing a desk clock powered by a smartphone battery (probably a samsung j7) and charged mainly by a solar cell. That car stereo is a good start for the project. Radio Shack has solar cells.
