Question - charging EX1 batteries with solar panel

I'll be shooting in a remote location for a week. I bought a Brunton Solaris 26 solar panel. I'm new to all this stuff. The solar panel has a female car adapter style plug option, but I can't find any kind of charger for the EX1 batteries (BP-U60) that allows for this. Anyone ever charge your EX1 batteries in the field with a solar panel that can give advice? The shoot is in a month.

Thanks, Les. I guess I need to learn a lot more about electricity, AC and DC currents and converters and all that because I'm still lost in that thread.
