Using a diode works just fine for a single cell but when you have multiple cells it gets hard due to tiny differences in each cell. A diode can forward bias between two cells causing the diode to burn out. A charge controller also serves to cut off the cell when the batteries are full. Overcharging can be an issue.

It's all about that moment when metal that hasn't seen the light of day for generations frees itself from the soil and presents itself to me.

Having a look at the schematic I think that I have all the components I just need to check on that relay.
