This really depends on where you live and where you plan to use it regularly. For example, i had one, and live here in CT and it was by far the worst purchase i have ever made. I instead bought a new trent 9900mah battery pack which allows me to recharge my batteries about 5 or 6 times in my devices. If your going to be in really open country, above treeline, desert etc then a solar charger may work for you.
