In order to use solar power to charge something like a laptop, you need a power inverter to go from the 12v DC of the solar panel to the 120v AC of your laptop. You also need a solar controller and a battery. It would be connected something like this. Solar panel to solar controller to battery to inverter to laptop. None of these things come with the solar panels, but must be purchased separately. Brunton sells a solar controller, as well as battery/inverter kits like their Solo Personal Power Plant.
