 I know you want a diode in series with the stack of solar cells (It's
not uncommon for that diode to already be in the manufactured solar
array.)  I'm interested in learning more here, want a PC110 array <G>

 Also if you put multiple arrays in parallel you do want a diode in
series with each array (so if one array's shaded, it doesn't
back-charge) etc.  I suggest Schottky's rated at the highest peak
current the array could possibly generate <G>

 Lessee, some places I pointed my brother at were:

 Photon Tech's Links Page

 Personal Solar

 All I have time to snag just now <G>
