Opinions on solar lights ?

I got wondering about solar charged lights for a bike, any opinions ?
There seems to be a plethora of options on the market.
Any suggestions ? It would certainly eliminate or reduce the need to mess around with AA batteries and charging.

Can you park the bike outside all day? None of the images from that link were "see the road" lights, they are "see me" lights. Not high power.

Planning on a long distance tour. I'm looking into a 30w solar system, but it would be nice if I didn't have to charge up a ton of batteries in addition to my gadgets. I don't plan on a lot of night riding and the solar systems I'm looking at will do 4 AA or AAA batteries at a time in addition to my other devices and built in batteries so a traditional 'see the road' light should be fine.
