Starts a fire using solar energy Fits in your pocket No moving parts and no batteries No gases Can be used as a signal mirror Description Created and manufactured by Solo Scientific Inc. in the USA the Tinder HOT Box Solar Fire StarterTM (Patent Pending) is a tinder storage box that can start a fire using solar energy, and the inside top cover is also a signal mirror. It will fit in your pocket! The Tinder HOT Box Solar Fire StarterTM is used to store fire starting tinder in the air/water tight tinder box portion of the unit that is sealed from the elements using an o-ring seal. This keeps the damp air/water out so your tinder always stays dry! A great companion to our other fire starters!Designed to function in any environment that will support life our Tinder HOT Box Solar Fire StarterTM will literally function for as long as our Sun will shine and there is tinder to be found! As a matter of fact our Tinder Hot Box Solar Fire Starter will even function on other planets - as long as there is a star nearby and tinder to store! There are no moving parts, no flint, no fuels, no gases, and no batteries! In addition, you will always have dry tinder in the air/water tight tinder box to use to start your fire! The inside bottom of the tinder box is a parabolic reflector that focuses all solar energy to a singular point just below the base of the removable and stowable tinder holder arm. The tinder holder arm is securely stowed in the top housing during non-use and has a circular area and an expandable slot at the top to insert and lock your tinder in place just above the focus of the Tinder HOT Box Solar Fires StarterTM portion of the unit.The tinder holder arm also has light- through holes for maximum efficiency and the Tinder Holder can be changed from stow configuration to fire starting configuration in seconds by simply removing from the top inside cover and pressing into place! The top of our Tinder HOT Box Solar Fire StarterTM is also a signal mirror that is there when you need it! Note: The fire starting portion of the Tinder HOT Box Solar Fire StarterTM cannot be used as a signal mirror as all solar energy and light is focused at a point just above the unit. To signal for rescue or to signal friends you simply remove the tinder arm from the top inside of the unit and flash the sunlight at your target.
