I generally have a battery backup head lamp that also lasts a long time as well but my IPOD and phone need a USB port. I forgot my camera too. It's also a USB port.
The panel I have has a pouch on the back that a battery pack fits into. I strap it across the back and it charges all day as I ride. Depending on my expected general orientation to the sun I can strap it across the front or back.
This was an important consideration (charging a battery rather than a device) because when a cloud or something disrupts the light a device can switch off charging and not re connect. The battery just keeps charging all day.
Then I charge everything off the battery at night.
