I recently picked up a Jackery 240 and Rockpals 100w solar panel. I recently used it while hunting. My friend used it to charge something for a few hours and battery dropped to about 60 percent. I plugged it into panel that was on my windshield for about an hour, and it was back up to 95 percent. Not bad at all.

Having apnea I have to have offgrid power for my CPAP machine if I want to stay in backcountry. I use a little sherpa 100 with an apnea machine the size of a soda can. It will last me two nights without a charge. Any longer and I would have to get a solar panel like yours....

So recently picked up a Euhomy 55 qt fridge. The Jackery 240 will keep up no problem with ideal sun conditions to recharge it back to 100% during the day. You'll want at least 50-60% to keep it going all night. Because of a cloudy day at camp, ended up picking up a Jackery 500. Here's both video reviews of it running off my 240.

Agreed, however, I will say, the 500 is heavier than I thought it would be. Not debilitating, but it's not as easy to move/toss around as the 240. Has a little more heft. I'll be testing it out the rest of the month during AO season.
