Can any of you guys recommend a Solar Battery Charger for a marine battery?

Just off hand noticed some, but don't know which one is better?

I've seen some good ones and they keep getting better and better but because of the costs I don't have one to recommend.

They have hand held solar chargers, where it folds out like a fan and fold sup compact. They have solar BAGS to charge things while you carry etc..

If you need something compact these guys have been around a while, for hiking and camping, you can charge devices.

I tried a solar panel charger for a marine battery a year ago - I was pulling more juice out of the battery than it could put back in. I don't remember the panel but it came from Sears (since destroyed).
I use a lightweight 1K generator attached to an inverter when the battery gets low - fast charging.
