Solar panels or Progressive Dynamics converter?

I am debating on whether to buy a suitcase solar panel with a charge controller or a Progressive Dynamics PD9260CV converter. It sound like I will be able to run my generator for a few hours to bring my batteries back to 90%with the converter. Not sure what kind of performance I can expect from the 100 watt solar setup. I am hoping it will keep my batteries topped off but not sure. Any experience with this out there?

100 watt solar panel will give you about 5 amps of charging. Average of 5 hrs. of good sun a day so 25ah a day into your battery bank with good sun. How big is your battery bank? How much battery a day do you use? These are just a few questions to ask yourself.
