Going To Travel This Summer? Take A SunRocket!

Whether you are camping, picnicking, backpacking, or on a cross-country road trip there is nothing like being able to make a hot cup of tea or some instant soup for a quick pick-me-up or a hot meal to keep you going. You don't have to stop and build a fire anymore. You can set your SunRocket out and let the sun do the work. Once your water is hot the SunRocket also keeps your chosen liquid hot for hours.

The device doubles as a thermos and a kettle for heating liquids. It utilizes aluminum panels to capture solar radiation and transfer the energy into heat for the thermal glass tube that holds the liquid. It doesn't just heat, it will bring liquids to a full boil given enough time. Even snow can be melted and brought to a boil for a lovely cup of cocoa while out skiing.

The casing is durable, weather- and scratch-resistant. The shock resistant glass interior flask holds 17 ounces of liquid. The handle also doubles as a stand for setting the SunRocket up for use. It is lightweight and portable.

In addition to travel and outdoor activities, the SunRocket is a great idea for disaster preparedness (including doomsday). It will allow you to boil available water to kill bacteria and protozoa for safety. It can help provide hot water for a bit of washing. It can be a bit of comfort during a difficult time.

With a little trial and error you could become the best solar-powered cook out there! Imagine all of the possibilities!

The SunRocket is a great idea for a gift for your favorite outdoor aficionado, doomsday prepper, or heck, even yourself. You are worth it after all.
