It might not be rocket science, but there’s definitely some science working here in this useful gadget. Introducing The SunRocket, a portable solar hot water kettle and thermos. The SunRocket uses the latest in solar thermal technology allowing it to heat up water and retain the heat for hours without the use of any electricity or battery power.
So how does it work? Glad you asked! It combines a vacuum tube with reflective panels to concentrate solar energy towards the container. Pretty simple idea and best of all, it works. It’s almost like wearing a black shirt in the sun on a hot day, but 20 times hotter.
Mmm, drinking water never tasted so good. Perfect for camping, travel, mountaineering, or the end of the world. But don’t let the lack of emergency situtions stop you from using it. As well as for drinking, hot water can even be used for washing, cooking or rehydrating foods and best of all the heat treatment kills water borne bacteria. Sweet. Nothing like a bacteria free cup of Earl Grey.
Why sacrifice a good cup of tea just because you have a front row seat to the apocalypse. That’s what I always say. Heat up that water and tea bag that mug. Careful though, it’s hot.
It’s super easy to use, and doesn’t take too long. Just about a half hour in some sweet west coast sunshine and bob’s your uncle. Speaking of Bob. He went in the sun for a half hour with some reflectors aimed at his face just like the SunRocket. Let me tell you, I’ll never look at a sausage the same way again. Lather on that sun screen kids. SPF 50.
