Default Solar Charger

I've been on many hiking and boating trips and I'm finally sick of not having my phone on. I'm going out for five days next month and I'm in need of a decent solar charger. Does anyone currently use a solar charger that they actually like? I'm not looking to spend a bunch but anything reasonable would be fine.

If you can't find a cheap one online, you could always just make one. It's pretty easy. I actually spent about an hour yesterday looking that up.

I don't mind paying like fifty bones for one, they're cheap off Amazon, I just wanted to see I'd anyone had an experience with one. Heck, I'd love to make one. Maybe that's my next project

Heres one from amazon.com that is really good, and not too expensive ($29.99).

or

you can get the bundle for like $7 bucks more, this one is the better deal cause the charger is $29.99 alone, and the panda speaker is over $20.00 so if you were to get it, i would go with this one instead of JUST the solar charger.
