Perfect for all who enjoy gadgets and the great outdoors. Designed to tap into the power of the sun, and provide luxuries like hot beverages and snacks in remote places where conventional kettles, gas and electricity are not readily available or not safe (can also be used as a redundancy to your current set up) . How many times have you needed a bowl of hot water to do the washing up after camping? Craved a hot brew on a cold days fishing? Wanted to cook your pot noodle at a music festival? Or (hopefully not) been in a survival situation where snow’s needed to be melted in order to get drinking water! Although the last example is somewhat extreme, it highlights the Solar Kettle’s brilliant versatility in solving these problems. The solar kettle, due to the lightweight materials used, is very portable and will strap to the side of your pack via molle straps or other attachement systems. In use, its reflectors are folded out to gather three times more energy than with only a plain tube. During transit, the reflectors are folded in and protect the tube, and it looks and feels just like a large thermos flask. The solar kettle gives you hot/boiling water on tap wherever there is sunshine. Whether camping in a tent, motor-home, caravanning or on manoeuvres with the army; the solar kettle means no more reliance on gas stoves and no more heavy and expensive gas canisters. No dangerous flames. Just an unlimited source of free energy!

FOR OUTDOORS AND OFF-GRID: This original solar kettle was designed specifically for those off-grid in need of clean safe drinking water, hot coffee, tea or soup. It can be used to rehydrate MRE’s, cook meals such as hot cereal, eggs, noodles, rice, potatoes or any other that can fit inside the tube. When finished cooking, just keep the cap closed to maintain content warm and ready to drink or eat for hours after the sun is out. No monitoring is required.
LIGHT, COMPACT, PORTABLE AND DURABLE: Measures 18.5” x 4”, weighs 2.5 lb. with a capacity to hold 3 cups (500 ml), it is made of strong, durable and shock resistant materials with no moving parts. It has been tested to withstand hail up to 25 mm in diameter. The solar kettle is protected against manufacturing defects for 24 months.
STURDY WITH TEMPERATURE GAUGE: Depending on the season and intensity of the sun and altitude, the kettle will warm up content as quickly as 15-20 minutes and reach boiling point of 200 F (93.4 C) in less than 1 hour. It is designed to work in all seasons as long as the sun is up. It will also function in cloudy days or with the snow around, capturing ultraviolet light and holding its heat.
HOW IT WORKS: Designed like a thermos consisted of two glass tubes made from borosilicate glass, through folded out reflectors specifically designed to maximize capturing the energy of the sun, the outer tube allows light rays to pass through the minimum reflection, while the inner tube will absorb heat energy warming up the water/content inside. The reflectors will gather three times more energy of the sun than with only a plain tube. The kettle is cold to touch on the outside, but warm on the inside.
ADVANTAGES: You will heat water at zero cost! No electricity required! No more reliance on a gas, propane or charcoal stove. You will use this anywhere there is sunlight. Whether camping in a tent, motorhome, mountaineering, hunting, fishing, kayaking or on maneuvers with the army – our solar kettle is a reliable source of easily made safe hot beverages and food.
