Running three Raspberry PIs on solar power 

One of the best things I did on my rig was to use 12V, and 2.5mm connectors everywhere. This allowed me to try different stuff, and to use whatevever device I want, either to provide power or to consume it. Has the battery run out of juice? Just attach a second battery on the regulator, and keep everything running. Want to charge your notebook? No problem, it uses the same connector. 
Another thing is that, instead of using one 12V-to-USB regulator, why not just attach a USB HUB? Which is just what I did…. And connected 3 Raspberry PIs in it at the same time.
