If the solar lamps are 12 volts; connect it positive to positive with a diode so when the sun goes down the solar cell won't drain the battery. However at 0.1 amp it won't charge the battery, it might keep the battery from loosing its charge while it is in storage.
I have all kinds of Instructables on solar garden lights but this Instructable might interest you on battery charging.

And this one might interest if you want to build a more powerful solar panel
