Recently I am making a project using solar panel. problem is my solar panels are 6v so I want to keep 5v constant current without dropping much current.

so is there any regulators, ICs or any board to do that thing?

As well as can I  supply 6v to tp4056 board?

seeking your valuable idea 🌹❤️‍🔥

Look for "low dropout regulator"

Datasheet says max 8V

Can you give a name of a suitable low dropout regulator for this please?

No, I can't. You know the power requirements of your planned circuitry, so choose one that will be able to handle the current you'll need.

@alham If it's for solar panels, I doubt any LDO will work, but why do you need one? Normally the panels go to either the old style PWM controller or the new MPPT controller. That takes a varying voltage and current and converts it to 12 or 24 or xx Volts at whatever current.

The TP4056 can handle 4-8V input and of course produces 3.7V output for 18650 batts. I recommend the following link

I just realized if you are talking 6V solar panels these must be very small panels, mine arte 19V at 10A.
