    which one is best? 'Best' being:

    Lightweight
    Easy to fit to a bicycle
    charges phones/gps etc quickly
    Cheap as possible
    Small as possible

    ..if it puts power in my legs as well that would be a bonus:biggrin:

    The Solio gets consistently good reviews.

    All chargers give their stats like that. From the magic battery-chargey box I have, the stats match with a sunny summer day. Actual experience is about half that on a murky winter day such as we're currently enjoying (batteries that charge up in one day in summer take two in winter). Works just fine, if you're not in a rush.
