What solar chargers are available?

Able to be mounted on vehicles or homes, they can be used to recharge larger items such a laptops while still being portable. Composed of a single large screen made of flexible material, they are also tend to be the most efficient of the mobile solar panels.
● Folding multiple screen: Folding screen solar chargers bridge the gap between the portability of the pocket chargers and the power of a single screen. Compact enough to be carried in a backpack, they consist of several linked screens with attached charging ports.
