Sorry to get back to you so late... Each panel puts out 200 mA;wired in parallel, with a Schottky diode 5819 on each, for a total 400 mA @ 6V and a resistor for a slight voltage-drop. Also wired in a standard USB type "A" receptacle to provide charging power from the panels to other USB devices like my phone etc. I've not had issues like others regarding the Nook Color being picky about chargers since installing the Customized Nookie FroYo eMMC distro. Got the panels from eBay:
Hope that answers it for ya. Been working GREAT for me.
I have to say... Soldering pins and resistors onto a mini-USB connector, at my age with my eye-sight issues SUCKS!
