BINGHAMTON, N.Y. (August 14, 2007) â€“ ReserveAmerica has awarded the Eureka! N!ergy tent series its Outdoor Industry Innovation Award, which recognizes the company and new product launch that inspires outdoor enthusiasts while enhancing the experience of outdoor recreation. Eureka!’s N!ergy is a series of tents wired for power with the E! Powerâ„¢ system, which enables campers to use convenient 12-volt accessories such as lights, fans or mattress pumps right inside the tents. Each year, ReserveAmerica recognizes the most innovative, creative and leading new product with its Industry Innovation Award. The Eureka! N!ergy tent series was selected from thousands of products from all major categories as the overall industry winner for 2007.
“We are proud to recognize Eureka! and its N!ergy tent line with the Outdoor Industry Innovation Award,” said John McDonald, director of marketing & business development for ReserveAmerica. “Eureka! has developed a product that truly revolutionizes the camping experience for the new generation of outdoor enthusiasts and matches the needs and lifestyle of the customer, creating a new benchmark for the industry.”
â€œEureka! is committed to providing innovation that will bring more families into the world of camping, and the N!ergy tent series certainly enhances that experience by bringing the comforts of home to the outdoors,â€ said Linda Grebe, product manager for Eureka! tents. â€œWe have taken consumer preference to heart with our E! Power system, and it is such a privilege to have the industry acknowledge its success. We at Eureka! will treasure this award for a long time.â€
The award will be on display at the Johnson Outdoors booth at the Outdoor Retailer Summer Market (booth #27027). The award itself was designed by the world renowned Bennet Gallery of California.
Eureka!’s N!ergy tents use the patent-pending E! Powerâ„¢ system, a wiring harness that is integrated into each tent. The system includes three 12v DC (cigarette lighter-type) outlets at various locations inside the tent. The outlets are powered by the E! Power Pakâ„¢, a portable sealed, lead acid battery that is rechargeable by 110v AC current or by a running car via a 12v DC connector. The E! Power system enables campers to run comfort and convenience features such as lights, fans or mattress pumps with appropriate plugs or adaptors. Depending on the size, the tent prices range from $149.99 to $249.99. Add-on accessories available with the N!ergy tent series include the 12v fan and light unit, ($24.99), 12v cable for charging 12v to 12v ($9.99) and 12v flexible reading light ($4.99).
