    Anyone use a solar charger? I'd like to get one for when I am hiking or camping. also to charge my GPS and maybe mp3 which all can charge off of USB

    I would love to find one that can go on my backpack when hiking and charge up during the daylight...

    I bought a PowerFilm foldable (PowerFilm Inc. - The worlds most lightweight and flexible solar panels) so I could tie it to the backpack, hang it over a branch, lay it on the truck, etc. to charge whatever suited me.

    Generally speaking when something was pretty dead it worked well but if it was somewhat charged I found more drain than charge.
