I bought this charger to keep my iPhone topped off during camping trips. It does exactly what you want it to do, and performs quite nicely! I tested it out in the woods, out of direct sunlight, and was able to get a full charge of my iPhone 4 each day (I literally ran the phone dead each day using the GPS). I'm certain I could get more juice out of it if I kept it in direct sunlight all day long.
The only thing I would (and likely will) change is that while charging the interior of the case is exposed. Laying it out on a rock to bask in the sun caused a few scuffs on the internal battery. I'm considering adding a layer of cloth inside, so the battery and connectors are always protected.
The battery is removable, and slips easily into a shirt pocket. This is an awesome feature, as it can be used as a battery booster for your phone. I won't have to use my phone sparingly at the zoo/theme parks anymore, as I'll have another charge and a half waiting in my pocket.
Perfect for keeping a phone charged up each day; for a notebook/tablet, I'd go bigger.
