Ben builds some portable solar-powered items that could be useful on a camping trip: a charger for gadget addicts and a hands-free rotisserie!
You don't want your phone to be out of battery when a bear attacks, do you?
Ben obtains some solar panels and proceeds to hook anything he can find up to them.
Next, Ben builds a circuit to charge a lead-acid battery with the solar cells.
With the panels working, Ben proceeds to build a solar-powered food-rotating campfire rotisserie.
Finally, Ben rigs up a simple charger for USB powered devices. So you can get apps while camping.

@LnghrnEngineer @cwkraft That's soylent green. Logan's Run they kill people at age 30. Can't remember why. But then one guy runs.
@cwkraft Logan's Run remake more relevant now than in 70's. Good sci-fi takes a concept (kill old people to save money) and explores it.
@UCFH Haha, nice one!
