I think solar panels only make "weight sense" if you're gonna be out for a long time. A spare Android battery is quite light, about 1/10 the grammage of even a light solar rig.

And you need the extra batteries if you're going to use the "color strobe app" and music features to hold a high-country rave as near to the camp of crotchety types as possible. Repetitious cyber music and flashing lights in the High Sierra!! :unibrow:
