I found a solar powered LED garden light at Wal-Mart for $4.00 the other day. I bought one mostly to see if the solar cell would be useful (not really, made of glass and hard to remove).
But then I got to thinking, the thing is only about 4.5 oz so it would not be totally insane to carry the thing. It could be fun to have a night light outside the tent or to mark the path to the outhouse or just for the comments it would get from other hikers.
Once the trees leaf out, it would be hard to keep it charged, but then the novelty would have worn off and could put in someones yard as you walk by to town. I just might put one on my pack when I head down to VA in a couple of weeks…
