Can we power SCUTTLE robot 100% using $22 worth of solar panels?

SCUTTLE uses 7 watts to perform driving, computation, and communication simultaneously. (from a previous test) If we hook up a cheap solar panel from cytron.io can we provide enough power for the whole robot? This panel is rated for 10watts, but in today’s test I could get just 5W. That means with two units, I can fully power our mobile robot and even charge the batteries some for later! I’m sure this panel is easy to get in USA through amazon as well.
