Solar Tents - Your Thoughts 
I just recently came across this article talking about solar tents being the next best thing when it comes to camping. Has anyone heard of it or tried it? What are your thoughts?

Sounds very interesting. I'm really curious to see how effective and efficient they are when it comes to charging batteries and other electric stuff as well as how well they hold up in different weather conditions.

I heard that these are now being used by the military, so I guess when it comes to charging and withstanding winds, they would be pretty okay. But for me, it sure defeats the whole point of tent camping. Once in a while, my husband and I would take our tent and do a bit of camping in it, just to get some time away from all the techie stuff. Having a solar tent just brings that back.

If you're planning on going tent camping for more than a few days, it could come really helpful. But I admit, for the price, I'd rather just get a separate solar panel to charge my batteries. It's still going to come out cheaper.

Re: Solar Tents - Your Thoughts 
I agree with you liz. Not only is it cheaper. I can imagine that these solar panel tents can be a little bit too sophisticated so if you need to have it repaired (either the solar panel or the tent itself), it can be a little bit tricky and frustrating.
