Do you know music is the product of the devil. And it uses that demon electricity.

You will surely go to hell if you bring a music device into the canyon.

But at least I'm enjoying the ride. Ride, ride, ride.

You could throw a goal 0 in a Loksak and charge batteries all day if you wanted to. However, my 7 will not fit in a 12.5x12.5 loksak, so make sure your sizing is good. I would still tuck the panel away for the big drops, but that's just me. Then you can charge your device(s) with the battery pack at camp or where ever.

I have the Mercury 10 panel and have used it on multiday trips. When strapped on the gear pile in full sun the panel charged the included battery pack in a couple hours. I did what others have suggested and I charged devices from the battery pack. I can charge 2.5 phones from one battery pack worth of juice. Keep in mind that this panel and battery pack will only charge devices that have a USB connector (no 2.5mm plugs or 110v plug type).

I would be happy to make a custom splash cover using clear vinyl and PVC material. The clear material is used for windows in drop curtains on boat Bimini tops It wouldn't be waterproof because of the stitching but would keep out the splash and sand.

My friend has returned from the GC. They had rain 18 out of 21 days. He took several spare batteries (21 amp - size of a cigar box) and was able to have power for his cpap for almost the whole trip. His large solar panel isn't waterproof, so he didn't really use it at all on the trip. Another person on the trip had a waterproof solar panel, and was able to power the bilge pump on his bucket boat with it.
