I am trying to make the smallest footprint audio player that would:
1) be solar powered
2) Have enough amps to power a 4ohm 24W transducer/exciter.
3) not need a trigger to play continuously

I have bought the Little Soundie, the Noisy Cricket and a 6w solar panel.
But I am running into a few problems.
1) I am not sure that the one 6w solar panel would be enough to power both the Little Soundie and the Noisy Cricket.
2) is the power from the solar panel stable enough for these devices?
3) would I be better served charging a battery then letting that battery run the devices?
4) is there a better player, idea or solution that I should try?

Really appreciate any feedback or help. Thanks so much,
