I bought a smaller one a few years ago to use on a hunting/camping trip. I think it was 5,000 mAh. It's about the same size as my phone.

Of course I had to test it out at home first. I used it to charge my phone (iPhone 4s at the time) until it was dead (about 1 full charge and 1 half charge). Then left it in the sun as much as I could until it was fully charged, took about 10 days.

If I was doing it again, I would get one of the larger units that folds up and has multiple solar panels. Look for the rating on the solar portion of them to get an idea if what it will power compared to what you plan to do with it.
