I use a 5.6 watt solar charger to (trickle) charge my boat batteries on the water.
Rather than carrying 3 deep cycle batteries for my trolling motor, I carry one battery, and charge as needed.
I also use the panel to charge cell phone, and my wife has charged her laptop

I would have to guess that the 40 watt solar charger you speak of charges to some type of storage (battery).

Beings that is a 40 watt (peak), I believe you'd need to invest in a regulator, but it will work.

maybe I could use a simple car battery with that inverter to at least power the mp3 player that also gets radio stations


Get a deep cycle marine battery, they are made for this exact type of thing.
Car batteries provide short bursts of high cranking amps, while deep cycle are designed for a slower, continuous discharge, and recharge many more times than a regular car battery.
