I know someone who is planning on walking the coast to coast this summer with a large solar charger strapped to their pack in order to charge their smart phone. Not only is it extra weight and cost, but I think that it will be pretty useless. It will probably just have provided enough power by the time they reach the finish. The high capacity chargers (or a couple of spare batteries) are a better idea.
Just a word of caution: I bought a powermonkey charger that you put 2xAA rechargeables in and it didn't work (with some consequences seeing as I tested it on a trip for the first time...) Turns out 2 batteries is 2.4volts which is less than the mobile battery I had so didn't charge it (reading retrospectively that's a common problem with lots of these where you put your own batteries in). It did however partially charge a much simpler, older phone battery. If you got one that took 4 batteries I think it could work (I just haven't tried one). Of note if you get one that works is rechargeable AA batteries have more charge than non-rechargeable one (about double from memory) but if you don't get the long life ones they go flat over a few days (regardless of use).
Maybe I'll try one of those New Trent ones recommended above next.
