This improved version of the "Solar Cookit" withstands rain, has better insulation, and still folds down to a 14" x 14" x 2" flexible packet.

Low cost, high quality, extremely useful — everyone should have at least one!

A solar cooker (=solar oven) concentrates sunlight using aluminum foil acting as a mirror to create sufficient heat to boil water or even cook a chicken.

It's a great item to take with you, especially to longer outdoor stays in hot places - such as the yearly celebration of the "burning man"!

Sun Oven is a great, portable solar cooker weighing only 21 lbs. It's ruggedly built with a strong, insulated fiberglass case and tempered glass door.

The reflector folds up and secures for easy portability on picnics, etc. It's completely adjustable, and comes with a built-in thermometer. The interior oven dimensions are 14"W x 14"D x 9"H and temperatures range from 350° to 400° F.

This is a very easy oven to use and it will cook most anything! After preheating, the Sun Oven will cook one cup of rice in 35 to 45 minutes. USA.

 

 

Heating with sunlight still is the most efficient use of solar energy.

Think of it: No fuel. No smoke. No electricity bill. Very portable. Not many people have one (yet).

With a solar cooker you can heat almost anything (with or without water) and it keeps you entertained and leaves a lot of room for learning and improving your technique or the the cooker itself.

Solar cooking is easy, free, and clean, and you can build a solar oven and a solar hot plate with a few dollars' worth of materials and hand tools.

Cooking with the sun shows how to harness the sun's energy in preparing food. It presents detailed plans, liberally illiustrated with line drawings and photos, for building solar ovens that can cook a 12 pound turkey in three hours, and a solar reflector "hot plate" that perks coffee and cooks steak, bacon and eggs, hot cakes and other stove-top meals. The oven will reach temperatures of 375 degrees F, and the "hot plate" 650 degrees F.

Read how it works, what is possible, try to reach or even beat the given numbers i.e. cooking times!

Why is it that nearly one-third of all RVs today have some form of solar power? Because no one wants to listen to noisy generators when escaping city life!

RVs lend themselves perfectly to solar panels because their flat roofs generally spend the entire day drenched in sunshine. Solar panels on your RV can operate lights, appliances (even your refrigerator), computers, and entertainment system without ever needing to pull into a crowded trailer park.

Choose from the following systems:
RV Class B Solar System (75 watts)
RV Class C Solar System (150 watts)
RV Class A Solar System (225 watts)

Product description:   Comment:

Guard owners from Hawaii to the Amazon Basin, from Alaska to Louisiana, all with the same theme: "These amazing things really work. We're mosquito free, while our friends are swatting away."

These pocket-sized devices emit an audible, high-frequency wave that repels some mosquito species. No scientific evidence proves that mosquitoes can hear, yet they really seem to work! There is an on/off switch so you don't have to activate until the mosquitoes arrive. Battery fully recharges in three hours of sunlight. China.

 

Now this is something I am looking forward to test in the rainforests of central and south america soon.

I can hear the high freqency sound when it is very quiet but after a minute I don't notice it anymore.

I'll keep you informed once the first mosquito arrives...

It's hot. It's cool. It's one heck of a nifty gadget that really cools you down on a hot day!

The Solar Hat Fan will impress your friends and neighbors, and keep your cranium cool on sunny days. It clamps on to your favorite chapeau (stiffer-type brims and baseball caps are recommended) and gets to work harvesting enough solar energy to directly power a working fan.

Features miniature photovoltaic panel with an adjustable mount. Measures 2.75" L x 2.125" W x 2.25" H. China.

 

A fun solar gift for everyone!

Note that the neither the hat nor the girl comes with the fan - only the panel!

Pick your power! Emergency Radio & Spotlight recharges by solar, hand crank and DC power.

Lightweight, portable five-in-one emergency device features an AM/FM radio, spotlight, flashing light, siren and digital LCD alarm clock with snooze. To recharge, just position the pivoting solar cell collection panel toward the sun; or, if no sun, turn the hand crank or plug into a 12V DC power socket with its DC adapter/charger (included).

Also runs on 3 AA batteries or 2 AA NiCad rechargeable batteries (included). Measures 8 1/2" x 3" x 7" and weighs less than 2 lbs.

 

The small and inexpensive alternative to an emergency power pack. Having light, radio, time, emergency sirene - all in one can be lifesaving and invaluable.

I have one of these and find myself using it not just in emergencies but when other torches are out of battery just when you need them.

Great multifunctional solar gadget!
