My phone is an Optimus G Android phone. It's an amazing phone, but it lasts maybe 4-6 hours with apps, gps, and music playing.
When I said "driven" I meant constrained. You can charge your light and phone from any of the USB compatible battery packs available today and 10000mAH should be more than enough. IMHO solar or dyno hubs are only necessary if you are touring places like the Dawson Trail or Mongolia. Here is a nice external battery. I would not want to carry a 5lbs gel cell around given the lighter and higher capacity external batteries you can get today.
