I also find using a plug in not always that convenient.

Using a cafe or laundry mat plugin sounds good but every other person with a cell or laptop has the same idea and many times in a campsite the plug in is in the communal bathroom so you have to plan to sit for a long time near the toilets or risk having some expensive electronics stolen. Just happened to a couple from Holland I met on my last tour. They seemed shocked (pun intended) but the temptation to pocket an unattended battery or cell phone is there for some I guess. Especially if the user just leaves it for hours.

I could see using a dynamo as well (will probably buy one at some point) but they are a single sport application and I also kayak, hike and camp, so a solar panel currently (pun intended) works to serve all those activities.
