I have a 30A Renogy Wanderer PWM controller. I have (2) 100W portable panels and it keeps the pair of 6V batteries humming along just fine.

You can buy little panels that clamp to the battery but they are just for trickle charging while in storage and not to actually recharge a battery. I agree with brwarrior above that your best bet is at least 100 watt panel and a controller to regulate it. Lots of posts on solar, just use the search panel above.

I have a Go Power 120 watt folding suitcase solar panel with a built in 10 amp controller. In full sun, it puts out 6.7 amps

All of those solar device look like pseudo-military trickle chargers. They are all titled maintainers. The highest one I see is 25 watts, or about 2 amps.
