You might want to re-post in the QRP forum, I've seen several posts about solar panels over there.

I don't have first hand experience with the roll-up style solar panels, but I do use the Goal Zero Boulder 30 panels with their Extreme 350 battery. It worked great last field day keeping the battery charged all day using 2 panels in parallel. The station was used for satellite contacts so there wasn't a whole lot of use, but I'm sure it would have held up all day. That said, I've since bought 2 more panels just to be sure.
