Don't leave your panel lying around unattended anywhere near any of the towns on the pacific coast. I was at the hiker biker at Harris Beach when some homeless dude took off with a solar set up. The dudes had set it up in the only patch of sun nearby and were sitting at a picnic table nearby, by the time they got up the guy had bolted with their panel. Oersonally I wouldn't use solar on the Pacific Coast in the summer, too damn foggy a lot of the time....
If you are going to get a battery, get one with a USB-C high capacity input and get a USB C charger, it'll charge up quicker than a normal USB. Failing that, get a high output USB charger and 2.4A USB leads. You can get cheap 6A chargers off Amazon. That way you spend less time charging.
I use a dynamo hub and a forumslader, good gear, but the Forumslader isn't cheap.
