Personally, (1) I am somewhat jealous -- no enough free time for an extended tour, for the foreseeable future; (2) I...

Most recent is Anker 26800 which accepts 30W from a PD charger. (I believe that more recent models will accept up to 60W. Charging capacity makes a HUGE difference -- you don't have to worry that...

Yes and no. I'd argue that the same principles apply. More so, perhaps, with touring where a typical day involves 6h+ of pedalling. Your 3-speed city bike example is quite good : why not tour on a...
