    Hi Logan and Drewl,

    You don't need a regulator or rectifier. What are the 'Specifications' of
    the batteries and the motors?

    I hope you have some kind of a multimeter. How much voltage and
    current are you actually getting out of your panels? How much
    voltage and current does it take to run the motor, for instance from
    a set of flashlight batteries?
    Neither of those would help getting more power out. A linear
    regulator would help if you are getting too much voltage for the
    motor. A rectifier would convert AC to DC, but that's not your
    problem as the panel already puts out DC.
    Only if the motor requires AC. If so, your life is more
    complicated.

    My son and i working school project just can't to get voltage out of
    the panels to kick start two 3v solar motors using four panels
    do we have build a linearer regulator or can i just bridge rectifier
    or should dc to ac
    any help we would be we greatfu for
