Those little panels, 15W and under, probably would be better marketed as "battery maintainers" rather than chargers. They're best suited for maintaining the charge on a battery, preventing the normal self-discharge that ruins batteries. And eventually, maybe, if the sun shines and battery is small enough, charging them too. :-)
