Saw this and thought it needed to be posted. I don't know what to think about it yet. Interesting application though...

Here is the description from the Canadian Tire website:
  • EZ-TentTM system for simple set up
  • 7" (18 cm) solar panel is placed on the top of the tent's hub and clicked into place. Fly is then placed on top of solar panel & tent, and sun will charge the panel through the clear PVC window at the top of the fly
  • Solar panel comes with case to be stored safely in tent duffle bag
  • Integrated LED rope lights line the top of the tent on the inside and a centre removable hand-held flashlight can be taken down or left as centre light
  • Automatic function allows lights to be able to come on as the sun sets, if desired
  • Solar panels can be charged in direct or indirect light; will take approx 4-6 hours of direct light to yield 2-4 hours tent light; 8-10 hours of indirect light to yield 2-4 hours tent light
  • Solar panel can also be used independently to charge batteries
Thanks to groovygreen for the link.
