Solar powered computer fan

To operate a single CPU fan, use one or two small solar panels designed for small electronics. Silica material collects solar energy and converts it into direct current, or DC electricity. The voltage is sent through a series of output wires and can be connected directly to the CPU fan or to a toggle switch for added convenience.
