Amazon has a number around 20 bucks and up.  My landlord over half a century ago had a solar power radio that he trasured. It had to put out by sun and was pain in the neck to use. Some days there were no sun.

My question what is wrong not to charge it from cigarette lighter while you drive?

I love the concept! You are in Florida, so sunshine may not be an issue, but in the Northeast in the winter we often find it lacking.  As to brands, no idea sorry.

Interesting Fred Griffin . I have a couple of small solar chargers I use to charge my camper battery but it never occurred to me to use one for charging my phone.

My wife and I both have this one.  They are about 3 years old and still going strong.  We have never relied 100% of solar for charging them, but know it's there if we need it and have an extended power outage.

Most of my phone charging takes place indoor...often at night. I have a car charger that I also use. I have a portable back-up charger. Don't think I need to add this new gizmo to the collection.

On the other hand, maybe I should get one before my next trip to Hawaii. Hmmm?

It makes more sense to carry a battery and use solar at home or on your vehicle to charge that battery.

I did not like the size of the charger. It is like carrying another phone.

Instead I went with batteries the size of a thumb drive.

X2Power 10.4Ah for $40  (Batteries+)

Belkin Velet 6700 for more dollars.

INSTANT Power.

It's not solar but I have a rechargeable battery pack that will charge my iPhone and/or iPad three times before it needs to be recharged. Solar may be worth checking out, though.

I love the one we have.  I do charge it via the usb if we have a storm coming, but I'm glad to know if we have a prolonged outage we have the solar we could rely on.  I've had as much as a week without power and several times where it was a couple to three days.
