I wonder just how much energy you could put in your battery while riding or when your bike is parked with these: http://www.ebay.com/itm/6V-1W-Solar...518538?hash=item28224328ca:g:V6cAAOSw-CpX~2ku

Say you bought, idk, 20+ of them, wired them together, and covered your bike in the panels. Basically, like motorcycle paneling, only all solar panels. I wonder if you'd get any juice out of them on a sunny day.

I may do this with my SLA battery I'm going to use for headlights, turn signals, and some Electroluminescent wire and strips for style.

They are 4" long.

The most successful solar bike I have seen pulled a bike trailer. The trailer allowed him to mount far more solar panels and batteries than a bicycle alone. I wish I still had a link to it.
