Wireless Sensor Networks are fundamentally limited by their energy storage resources and the power they obtain from their environment. Several micro-solar powered designs have been developed to address this important problem but little analysis is available on key design trade-offs. We provide an empirical and mathematical analysis of two leading competitors (Heliomote and Trio) and develop a taxonomy of the micro-solar design space, identify key components, design choices, interactions, difficulties and trade-offs.
