Default Solar powered charger

My wife's friend has asked me if I can find a solar powered charger,

asking on here, to see if anyone knows of anything like this.

I have found a solar powered battery charger, but her straighteners
are electric, so it is something that is able to supply power to an
electrical product.

I know it seems a silly question, but I said I would ask for her and
find out if it exists.

Depends on the model.

Some need 1kW at 240v - which is entirely impractical to power from a
solar powered battery charger.

Unless you hold it up a bit nearer to the sun, of course...
