Do take notice of the hours of DIRECT sunlight needed to charge devices.
With less direct sunlight you need even more hours!!!
This comes from their own site:
"NOTE: For maximum power output, angle the panels towards the sun. When the panels are in direct sunlight but not angled towards the sun the power declines about 20%. When they are angled away from the sun the power drops off 80-90%. Dirt and scratches on the face of the solar panels will reduce the amount of light hitting the solar cells and reduce the power generated. To clean them use a damp non-abrasive cloth."
In other words, when walking around, you would normally only reach 20% of the power, unless you can always walk with your back to the sun? ;-)
BTW any further offtopic discussions should probably not go the mailing list
