Check out the Goal Zero line of solar chargers and battery packs. Trouble-free and expedition proven. One is almost to the gulf right now with Janet Sullens Moreland, the first woman and first American to paddle the entire Missouri/Mississippi river system, 3800 miles worth.

I have a back-up battery that will give the phone about two charges. That is more than enough around here. Most of the places I camp don't have any service so I only turn it on and check in when I am in an area I know has it. Turning the phone off unless you need it conserves the battery for a long time.
Solar and it works well.|

I'll get you the name of it later when we get it unpacked. (we just got down to the first stop of our snow bird destination, and will be using it in the Everglades)
It is called a "Power Curve"|

not great reviews. Let us know if it works for you or if it doesn't too.
I don't pay much attention to reviews |

To me the Joos looks like the best of the bunch.
