Sun Rocket solar cooker:

Last week I get the Sun Rocket from Sunkettle, a great and cool object which deserves to be published in the Solar Cooking Atlas Blog.


The Sun Rocket has been developped by an Australian entrepreneur and works like a small solar cooker with a form of thermos. This portable solar hot water heater is quite sofisticated, more than conventional solar cookers, because the main objetive fixed during the development was to be really portable and efficient.

The SunRocket is an amazing way to heat and boil water using sunlight. In order to preserve water warm, the SunRocket use the latest solar thermal technology: a evacuated tube and reflective mirror which concentrate light on the dark surface of the tube which absorb solar heat and comunicate it to water.

When the SunRocket is opened it can heat water in about 30 minutes and keep it hot during hours when it's closed. The SunRocket is scratch and weather resistant and is also compact and lightweight. The water or food you put inside to eat only comes in contact with clean glass so thereis no plastic or other substances contaminating your dish.

I would recommend to use SunRocket for Eco living when traveling, camping or hiking, home energy saving, picnics and outdoor events but it can also be used to melt snow or boil lake water and transform it into safe drinking water.

Here you can see the cool Timelapse video I made to test temperature increase.
