Or what do I have to look for on a portable generator to recharge my camera and tablet.

As I´m planning to be far from any electric outlet for long periods of time, but still would like to be able to take photos and read e-books, I´m been looking at hand cranked dynamos and portable solar panels, but I´ve realized I don´t remember almost anything of what I learned about electricity back in school.
Looking at the stats on the batteries I need to charge, and the ones on the generators, how do I figure out how long it would take to charge a specific battery? I´m lost with the numbers and I can´t seem to understand it any better after some googling.
I´m bringing a couple chargers with car lighter adapters too, but that won´t always be an option.
I may get a battery pack, but that will only take me so far between charges, and I´m backpacking light, so carrying a car battery with me is not something I would do. If I do bring a battery it will be something like the Astro Pro2.
Also, if you have any specific recommendation for a dynamo, solar panel or other solution
it will be greatly appreciated.
