Solar Panel on Pack

Our Brunton solar panel had to take quite a bit of abuse. Overall, the panel itself did great, and had no problems through the whole trip. On the other hand, the connecting wires and chargers were a constant struggle to keep working. There was a lot of "hot-wiring" of charger systems, and at least one charger that completely died, when the solar charger produced enough power to fry some component (maybe the transformer?)
