I do not think aero when it comes to clothing, but I have heard that flapping clothing has much more drag. My windbreaker probably flaps somewhat.

I try to be self sufficient when touring for electricity, have a USB charger drawing power from a dynohub to charge up a powerbank and other devices. But I rarely am indoors on a bike tour. When you are credit card touring you can charge up every night with an outlet, they are a lot less cost effective for you.
