I want a solar panel to provide electric to speakers while away camping, do you have a solar panel that would be able to do this, it would be in use in the early hours of the morning so would need to charge itself during the day. Thanks

Can this kit be used to directly power a unit, such as a generic 15v mini desk fan or should it be only used to charge up a power source like a battery of some kind?
