Solar Tent Charges Your Gadgets in the Wild


Looking to venture into great outdoors but not quite ready to go on a total tech detox? The Katabatic solar-powered tent might be the camping product you’ve been waiting for.

Released by Eddie Bauer in collaboration with Goal Zero, the Katabatic tent offers a sun-soaking fabric on top which absorbs light all day that powers an outlet inside into which campers can plug in their gadgets.

Joe Atkin, President and CEO of Goal Zero says:

“Technology plays big role in the time we spend outdoors. It allows us to track, photograph, and share our adventures with friends and family. The Lighthouse 250 and Katabatic 2 tent provide the power and light to help take advantage of that technology in even the most remote locations.”

This all weather tent is 92 inches tall and an awesome integration of green technology. It has 36 square feet of space inside and weighs about eight pounds.

Wires transfer power gathered from the roof to the inside of the tent. The solar electricity can then be stored in a battery pack or ostensibly transferred right to a device via USB or another common interface.

The tent costs upwards of $800, but for easy access to electricity in the outdoors, the price might be worth every volt.
