Hah ha, I was thinking the same thing.
Talk about bright. I got these (Solar Moon-Rays probably a trade name
) Solar-Powered Garden Lights by Emerald at Canadian Tire early in the spring. Four for $29.95, on sale for $9.95. I bought 2 pks for the campsite. These things actually throw about a 2-3' diameter light on the ground, very bright for cheap solar.
Saturday was glorious sunny and it charged all day. At night, it lit up the entire camper in a blue/grey light. I could actually see in my fridge. It's even fully automatic, turn on the lights and it goes out, turn off the lights and it comes back on. You pay extra for that in a night light.
Well it was still working in the morning, but no sun the next day, so it didn't charge well. But it did give a small amount of light all night. I guess that would be problematic on the West Coast.
Someone even suggested using a couple in the dinning tent for playing cards at night. Maybe they won't have to wake me to fill the Coleman that way.
