Your battery/charging needs are always dictated by the electronics you carry and where you'll be touring.

For anything other than expedition touring I believe that a 10000 mAh battery is more than enough for cell phone/tablet recharging
and you can solve the lighting issue by using lights that need AAA and just carrying spares.

I have a rear red blinky and a Petzl head lamp that both use AAA and carry spares. I have an external battery for my iPhone that will recharge
it 5 times and just make sure it is topped up whenever I stop at a restaurant, library or motel.

If you are going to be off the grid for a long time (more than a week) I would supplement that system with rechargable AAA and a solar system.
