    After taking a look I would be more inclined to lean towards the Mophie option as well if i were biking and had access to power outlets ever so often. Seems like that’s a fairly big pack and should keep your electronics powered even if it took you a day or two to get to an outlet for a recharge.

    MIke wish I would have seen this before you left on your trip. I have been traveling with Mophie juice packs and solar panels for some time and the combo works out great for me. I found a solar panel that you may want to look into for future trips. Actually I will put a few links on this post of some gear I use you might be interested in. Light weight and small form factor is key for both pedal and motor bikes.

    I use this to charge my Mophie juice packs while riding.

    These can be used with the Mophie juice packs for the campsite and they put out plenty of light. I use them on the picnic tables when I have when it gets dark. Used them in the tent at night before I got the luminaid. LED and very little drain on the juicepacks

    These also can be used with the Mophie jucie packs for when you are cooking in the tent at night. Amazing what a little air movement can do for your comfort. These also do not use up the juicepacks much.

    These things just rock. I have more than a few, and they will hold ice for a freakishly long time. They were the brainchild of a cyclist and they have multiple sizes that fit in your bottle holders on your bike.

    And I did not mean actually cooking food in the tent at night. I meant cooking as in HOT…. 😛
