Solar charger help? Answered

I want to make a solar charger to charge AA's for my camera, my phone ( LG Banter), ipod touch, and maybe a DS Lite.  And if somehow I could detach everything except for the batteries for when I backpack.I have pretty much no knowledge on curcits, but I do want this to be a fast charger for the AA's. I was thinking of ordering and making a high-speed charger and making a mini-boost. But I'd like to spend less than $50 on this entire project. Any help is greatly accepted.

For $50 you can't buy enough solar cells and parts to make a fast charger for AA's.

How many are your trying to charge at a time?
