Plug in outdoors with the Eureka N!ergy 1210, a family-size tent that sleeps up to eight people while offering the convenience of built-in power. The N!ergy 1210 is tough yet versatile, with a freestanding fiberglass frame, clips, rod sleeves, and a ring-and-pin assembly for quick and easy setup. The tent's 75D StormShield polyester exterior, meanwhile, keeps out rain, wind, and other weather provocations. Perhaps the coolest feature, however, is the tent's E! Power system, which lets you enjoy your favorite small appliances and accessories while you camp. Simply hook up your N!ergy series tent to an optional E! Power Pak, then plug into one of your tent's three 12-volt outlets. N!ergy tents are prewired, so there are no extra steps during assembly. More significantly, you can charge the E! Power Pak from any home outlet or your car's 12-volt power supply prior to use. Once you've installed the Power Pak, you're free to plug in a reading light, fan, or other 12-volt powered accessory.

The tent's openings include two large, side-opening D-style doors that offer private entry into each room, four windows, two mesh roof vents, and two large mesh sidewall panels that provide extra ventilation and light. And thanks to the removable room divider curtain, you can easily convert the tent from two rooms to one or vice versa. Other details include a gear loft and two storage pockets to help you keep essentials close at hand yet conveniently tucked away; a full-coverage fly with brims in the front and rear doors; and three-season suitability. The N!ergy 1210 tent, which offers 120 square feet of space, measures 12 by 10 feet across the floor and 6 feet 4 inches tall, weighs 21 pounds and 2 ounces, and is backed by a lifetime warranty.

About Eureka
Though the exact year is unknown, Eureka’s long history begins prior to 1895 in Binghamton, New York, where the company still resides today. Then known as the Eureka Tent & Awning Company, its first wares were canvas products--most notably, Conestoga wagon covers and horse blankets for nineteenth century American frontiersmen--as well as American flags, store awnings, and camping tents.

The company increased production of its custom canvas products locally throughout the 1930s and during the 1940 and even fabricated and erected the IBM "tent cities" just outside Binghamton. The seven acres of tents housed thousands of IBM salesmen during the company’s annual stockholders meeting, which had since outgrown its previous locale. In the 1940s, with the advent of World War II and the increased demand for hospital ward tents, Eureka expanded operations and began shipping tents worldwide. Ultimately, upon the post-war return of the GIs and the resultant housing shortage, Eureka turned its attention to the home front during the 1950s by supplying awnings for the multitude of mobile homes that were purchased.

In 1960, Eureka’s new and innovative Draw-Tite tent, with its practical, free standing external frame, was used in a Himalayan Expedition to Nepal by world renowned Sir Edmund Hillary, the first person documented to summit Mt. Everest only six years earlier. In 1963, Eureka made history during its own Mt. Everest ascent, with more than 60 of its tents sheltering participants from fierce 60+ mph winds and temperatures reaching below -20°F during the first all American Mt. Everest Expedition.

For backpackers and families, Eureka introduced its legendary Timberline tent in the 1970s. Truly the first StormShield design, this completely self-supporting and lightweight backpacking tent became one of the most popular tents the entire industry with sales reaching over 1 million by its ten year anniversary.

Eureka tents have also traveled as part of several historic expeditions, including the American Women’s Himalayan Expedition to Annapurna I in 1978 and the first Mt. Everest ascents by a Canadian and American woman in 1986 and 1988. In recent history, tents specially designed and donated by Eureka sheltered Eric Simonson and his team on two historic research expeditions to Mount Everest, this time in a quest for truth regarding the 1924 attempted summit of early English explorers George Mallory and Andrew Irvine. During the 1999 expedition, the team made history finding the remains of George Mallory, but the complete mystery remained unsolved. Returning in 2001 to search for more clues, the team found amazing historical artifacts which are now on display at the Smithsonian.

Selecting a Tent
Fortunately, there are all kinds of tents for weekend car campers, Everest expeditions, and everything in-between. Here are a few things to keep in mind:

Expect the Worst
In general, it's wise to choose a tent that's designed to withstand the worst possible conditions you think you'll face. For instance, if you're a summer car camper in a region where weather is predictable, an inexpensive family or all purpose tent will likely do the trick--especially if a vehicle is nearby and you can make a mad dash for safety when bad weather swoops in! If you're a backpacker, alpine climber or bike explorer, or if you like to car camp in all seasons, you'll want to take something designed to handle more adversity.

Three- and Four-Season Tents
For summer, early fall and late spring outings, choose a three-season tent. At minimum, a quality three season tent will have lightweight aluminum poles, a reinforced floor, durable stitching, and a quality rain-fly. Some three-season tents offer more open-air netting and are more specifically designed for summer backpacking and other activities. Many premium tents will feature pre-sealed, taped seams and a silicone-impregnated rain-fly for enhanced waterproofness.

For winter camping or alpine travel, go with a four season model. Because they typically feature more durable fabric coatings, as well as more poles, four-season tents are designed to handle heavy snowfall and high winds without collapsing. Of course, four-season tents exact a weight penalty of about 10 to 20 percent in trade for their strength and durability. They also tend to be more expensive.

Domes and Tunnels
Tents are broadly categorized into two types, freestanding, which can stand up on their own, and those that must be staked down in order to stand upright. Freestanding tents often incorporate a dome-shaped design, and most four-season tents are constructed this way because a dome leaves no flat spots on the outer surface where snow can collect. Domes are also inherently stronger than any other design. Meanwhile, many three-season models employ a modified dome configuration called a tunnel. These are still freestanding, but they require fewer poles than a dome, use less fabric, and typically have a rectangular floor-plan that offers less storage space than a dome configuration. Many one and two-person tents are not freestanding, but they make up for it by being more lightweight. Because they use fewer poles, they can also be quicker to set up than a dome.

Size Matters
Ask yourself how many people you'd like to fit in your fabric hotel now and in the future. For soloists and minimalists, check out one-person tents. If you're a mega-minimalist, or if you have your eye on doing some big wall climbs, a waterproof-breathable bivy sack is the ticket. Some bivy sacks feature poles and stake points to give you a little more breathing room. Also, if you don't need bug protection and you want to save weight, check out open-air shelters.

Families who plan on car camping in good weather can choose from a wide range of jumbo-sized tents that will accommodate all your little ones with room to spare. A wide range of capacities is also available for three- and four-season backpacking and expedition tents. Remember, though, the bigger the tent you buy, the heavier it will be, although it's easy to break up the tent components among several people in your group. It's also helpful to compare the volume and floor-space measurements of models you're considering.

This is a nice tent. The power pack is a great option. I have 3 young daughters, and I can turn on an overhead lamp from a switch next to my sleeping bag. The blue glowing outlets are nice nite lights. This is labeled as a eight person tent, but five is more like it.

Verified Purchase
This tent, like most, uses fiberglass poles connected with "shock cord" (also known as elastic cord). Unfortunately, upon arrival, we opened the package and found that one of the shock cords was severed, rendering one pole set unusable.

While Electronica Direct would provide a replacement after shipping this one back to them, that would not work for our time frame and upcoming vacation. So we fixed it ourselves by buying shock cord and installing new shock cord inside the poles. FYI - it is hard to find shock cord in mid-summer - all sporting goods stores were sold out, as were all but one fabric store. If you need shock cord, the fabric stores sell 1/8" elastic cord, which is the same thing, for about .49/yard, and seem more likely to have it in stock than camping stores.

I recommend that Eureka use stronger shock cord and/or protect the ends of the poles during shipping so that the cord would not arrive in a severed condition. I do not blame Electronica Direct - this quality issue is Eureka's problem and their China-based manufacturer that ships the tents fully packaged to US distributors.

I wanted to change the review to 3-stars but Amazon won't let me change my initial selection. The tent will hopefully perform fine in the field - but we are taking extra shock cord and duct tape just in case. I selected this tent, in part, due to the nearly full coverage tent fly, unlike many other tents that cut corners with flys that come down to about 3 feet off the ground and provide no protection for the lower section of the tent. The size of the tent can easily accommodate 2 adults, and gear, in each of the 2 "rooms". You could fit six depending how packed you want to be and how much gear you might have to leave outside.

By far one of the best investments I have ever made. Tent sets up easily and drops quickly. I have used it on four seperate camping occasions during spring, summer and fall and will be trying it out this coming winter. The wiring is not an issue and I suggest that you spring for the e-power pak. Great invention for us "old timers". Thanks

As far as I can tell the tent works great, and has been absolutely dry through two rainfalls (we did seam seal it). It's not quite an 8-person, but 8 people could fit with only sleeping bags, no mattresses or gear. So, if you're next to your car (or house) and don't mind sleeping on the ground, you'd be fine with 8!

My only beef here is with the marketing. I researched quite a bit to find out if the power pak was optional. Called a few backpacking stores, and was told if I had power access (outlet and extension cord) I was "good to go" with just the tent. So, I only bought the tent. Well, the tent ONLY has 12V input/output. So, NO you canNOT plug into a standard outlet without SOME sort of converter. I guess it doesn't have to be the power pak, so that makes it optional? However, you'd be hard-pressed to find another that has 12V output from standard rather than 12V input into standard. If you have to have it to make the tent work, just sell the thing with it!
