Default Outdoor Lantern Solar Solution needed


I've been all over Amazon and AliExpress looking for a type of product that boils down to an LED bulb connected to a solar panel. Almost all options are a dim bulb with a tiny solar panel.

I don't understand is why someone doesn't offer way brighter bulbs with a way bigger solar panel. (Is it a battery storage issue?)

So I visit here under the presumption I may need to hire an electrician to 'make' the product I'm seeking. That is: I take a lantern and bulb combo I already use and juice it (somehow) with a larger solar panel.

I'm going to include links to my bulb and lantern. I must stick with these because I'm in a condo complex using only this fixture. (What I'm doing is adding a lantern where no electricity ever was set up.)

This is not spam. It's just so that anyone who has spec questions can simply go to the links.

The lantern --

This Dusk Till Dawner bulb (7 Watts) -- (edited, explained way below) pd_rd_r=708b4f24-1065-11e9-a4fb-b1d8f98b2ea8&pd_rd_w=WnFrk&pd_rd_wg=jXLfp&pf_rd_p= 18bb0b78-4200-49b9-ac91-f141d61a1780&pf_rd_r=XP9K00YH4MRRENJKQ6X2&refRID=X P9K00YH4MRRENJKQ6X2&th=1

So I'm looking for a way to set up a large enough solar panel/battery/convertor situation to power this.

In this picture I show where I'd like to run the exposed wiring.

The panel would run to a California rooftop typically bathed in light.

So is this possible? And reasonably affordable?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
