Cool Blackburn Flea solar charger + iPhone

In two months, I'm graduating college this summer and touring across America. I'm getting an iPhone as a graduation present, and also recently ordered the solar chargeable Blackburn Flea (wonderful light btw, especially if you want to switch lights between bikes frequently). Here's a photo for reference:



Can this charge an iPhone?

I'll be curious to know if the charger is worth it at all. First, most people riding cross-country ride during the day. Unless you're planning to flash the Flea while riding, and recharge at rest stops, you won't need it much. Second, I doubt that tiny charger can charge even a tiny Flea battery in a reasonable time. Finally, I wonder where you'll park the light plus charger combination on your bike while riding.

Or should I have posted this in the 50+ (aka old fart's) forum?
