The 2 watt panel and 4 nimh holder is the most popular, but I also make larger 1000ma panel options capable of running the pi overnight. They are linkable to increase the current.
Micromart has reviewed the basic model this week if you are interested in seeing how they got on with it.
LOL. I'm in the southern US, so one would think I have good "solar reception". Unfortunately, I live in jungle of trees. To get decent solar here I'd have to separate the Pi and panel, and put the panel somewhere on the edge of the lot. I have a small panel, and can't believe how much difference the sun angle makes, relative to power output. Should have some sort of automatic panel tracking device, but that's more power consumption from the servo-motor.
