    For the stuff you have listed:

    use 20oz soda bottle instead of msr thingy for alcohol
    bounce all those chargers and solar panel
    gps is not necessary, carry the maps and Companion/Wingfoot instead
    green laser?!?
    finger light?!?

    Since you said this is an incomplete list, I'm not going to comment on the many missing items...don't forget the sunscreen, though...

    See you on the trail,

    The solar panel is a coleman exponent flex 5
    it has a cigarette lighter plug coming off of it

    using an igo adapter from that, which fits my cell, and batt charger and anything else i need it to fit

    i have a 110ac to cigarette lighter adapter in my bounce box for charging in town

    the batt charger is just a 4AAA/AA charger from walmart
