I'm a bit confused, I bought the solar cell from Radio Shack, but I am really not cure where to attach the wires of the crystal earpiece to. Does one go anywhere on the silver contact running along the bottom of the cell and the other on one of the thin silver lines separating the cells vertically?

You can tell where the solar cell contacts are by using a voltmeter.
Place the cell in the light, and touch one lead of the meter to the
bottom contact, and touch the other lead to places on the top that you
think might be the top contact. When you see half a volt on the meter,
you have found the contacts.
There should have been information in the package from Radio Shack.
Or, you could buy one of our solar cells, and look at this picture.

For Radioshack model 276-124 Silicon Solar Cell, refer to this page: http://support.radioshack.com/support_supplies/doc17/17162.htm
You can use light tape instead of solder if you don't have solder.

I am looking for a solar cell with 0.5 V open circuit voltage and and 0.1A short circuit current. The power supply for solar simulator is 150W. So please let me know if solar cell with these parameter is available on any radioshack
