Default A good solar charger?

Anyone know of a good solar charger that I can hook to a battery, a laptop, or an iPad? I don't necessarily want one with a built in battery. I've searched but can't find one that fits my needs. Thanks

This company has great solar systems for the house - a little bigger than I was looking for but it is something I may need in the future, Thanks a lot!

Here's what you want. These systems are superior in many crucial ways. Take a look.

Anything from that company. I had two of there chargers and used them in Afghanistan. If I put them both out I could get 1 charge of an IPOD classic off of 1 of the smaller models with a clip on it . And then I could get 2 charges of an IPOD classic with the other larger one which i linked you. They are outstanding. Survived me throwing them around in my pack all deployment. I HIGHLY recommend them.
