The solar panels I have are, as well as a 50000mah Lithium po battery is put out by Mobile Power Australia. Cost $90 au.. Charges my phone ( Telstra Brand) 8 times or 7 times with radio (radio uses a phone battery as well). the solar charger, is only 5 watts, but charges 18000 milli amps, in an 7 hour summers day. I have not used the setup for biking yet only for general camping. The panels are monocrystaline, with 22.5% efficiency. All waterproof Battery included. So I think if I have the battery charged I would get quite a long time out of it and can charge it quite well with the panels. I have never used a dynamo, only bottle ones back in the 60's. I am not a fast rider, like travelling no more then 10miles an hour, so would not get the real benefit from it.
