The Orange Chill ‘N’ Charge Tent is a Glastonbury Solar Concept Tent. I’ve been seeing pictures of this solar tent circulating on the web, but it has only been a picture. Well, that just leaves too many unanswered questions for me.
How do you utilize the solar power in the tent?
Where do I buy this solar tent?
What I found out is that this tent is really very interesting. Unfortunately, it is a concept tent and is not for sale at this time (as far as the information I have found anyway). But what a great concept! The solar powered tent is made by Orange, which is a brand of the France Telecom Group- one of the world’s leading telecommunications operators.
So, how can you use the solar power in your tent? For one thing, when the tent floor falls below a certain set temperature, the floor heats up. Nice!
The last feature is the coolest feature of all! When you are in a parking lot looking for your car, you will sometimes activate the car’s alarm so you can find it. Now if you lose your tent in the woods, you can send a SMS message from your mobile phone that will cause your tent to glow. It’s called Glo-cation technology. No, I am not making this up! You know I’m a sucker for camping lights. This tent takes camping lights to a whole new level. I am already sold on this tent. Now if someone could just get this solar tent from concept to campsite, we would be ready to go!
I’ll see ya by the campfire.
