Now..can you tell me the source of the power and the associated voltage please?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

DC 0.202 Volts

Expert:  Steve G. replied 1 year ago.

Ok, and what is the source of this power? A solar panel of some kind maybe?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Yes. Therefore, with the given amount of voltage vs. best possible conductors and it length what principle would i need to observe to make use of that voltage or what can I do to increase it if it is insufficient to work with some sort of inverter?

Expert:  Steve G. replied 1 year ago.

That is a minuscule amount of power. You are sure that the voltage is .2V and the power is .5W?

A phone charger for example uses 2.5W (2500mW) which is 5 times what you have there.

What is it you are hoping to power with this arrangement because it is not a lot of power.

Let me know.
