I got a little solar jobbie a couple of years ago, around 200mm x 150mm with a USB outlet only. Provided charge to samsung phones in full sunlight, but my iphone 5 rejected it as an unsupported device due to the low output I presume.
Recently I got a 40W folding kit which is four panels in a soft bag which can be folded out to expose the number of panels you want. It has a USB, 12V and 18V outputs, with a number of adapters which can apparently be used to charge a laptop. No problems charging the phone with 2 panels exposed to the sun.
