Which Solar panel?

Hi, trying to sort out my new-ish toy and I'm looking to for a solar panel to run the compressor fridge and a few other things as the fancy takes me. Something 50 to 100 watts would seem about right, needs to hook up to a T-Max split charger. Any suggestions most gratefully received.
