There is a thread over on CPF that actually turned out pretty good on solar charging http://www.candlepowerforums.com/vb/showthread.php?401176-Solar-charging.... It mainly revolves around the Sunkingdom 5W-13W 5V USB panels and the XTAR MC1 Plus. Real world results discussed, not some inflated specs or expectations. If it were me, I would with get as large a panel as the budget would permit, but everybody’s definition of camping is going to be different (e.g. backpacking or caravan/RV).

I used to sell AE (alternative energy)..... If you are looking for quiet...you may want to consider the inverter generators. Not only can you charge your batteries but you can also use as backup power when you need....and more than solar can provide.

It's the simple things that we take for granted that cost us the most
