SCC3733 Solarcell hacking

Here's a tip submitted by Rick Steenblik regarding hacking our SCC3733 for less voltage, but more current:

After using your SCC3733 solar cells for a couple of bots I noticed that they can be altered to provide about 3.3v at 80ma (in full sun) by cutting the bus connector on the back to electrically separate the two sides of the cell and then to cross-connect the two sides of the bus to the + and - contacts. This puts the two sides in parallel.

Nice - half the voltage; twice the current, still all in the same solar package!
