    I haven't tried one, but I like that idea. You'll probably find chargers that work with your car battery. That would be another option.

    Looking at lists of best solar chargers of 2020, this is the least expensive I've found
    https://www.amazon.com/BEARTWO-Ultra-Compact-batteries-Flashlight-Activities/dp/B07DW5LK2Z

    the next in price is this
    https://www.amazon.com/Solar-Power-Charger-Flashlight-Splashproof/dp/B07FDXDB3W

    Read reviews, especially the 1 and 2 star before you decide to buy.

    Looks like there is one cheaper than the above 2nd link.

    WHY ARE WE YELLING FOR ONE THING
    Is rude and no reason for it.

    I have looked at several my self just could never byte the bullet per say to get one. I have also thought about doing a backup battery and using the solar to charge that.

    Check to make sure that if you equipment uses the quick charge that it offers that. That way you are not waiting around several hours for the charge.
