TYN-91 Solar Charger ?
I came across following solar charger here: http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.4799
and am considering giving it a try. Those are it's specs :
anyone out there ever tried those ?
My main concern with such device is that it's Built-in 2000mAh rechargeable lithium battery will gain unnecessary heat whenever device gets exposed to sunlight. my common sense tells me it shouldn't be healthy for the battery. Am i wrong ?

I've used a different brand in the past and you should be okay as long as you have a tip that is compatible with the power plug. A sony reader will not charge from a general usb mini plug type charger. It will only do this from a laptop since it needs the actual driver installed to work correctly. I have seen some cables that go from a usb connection to the power plug advertised, but I haven't tried any of them.
In regards to the battery, I don't think you should have an issue with it being damaged from heat/sun.
