This fire starter is so simple, durable and easy to use. All you have to do is point it at the sun and whatever tinder you have ignites almost instantly.
Fulton, NY (PRWEB) May 22, 2013
CampingSurvival.com has announced the release of Solo Scientific's latest wilderness survival invention, the Tinder Hot Box Solar Fire Starter™. This brand new product has both a tinder storage box that can start a fire, as well as a signal mirror inside the cover, enabling it to also be used as signaling device.
The Tinder Hot Box Solar Fire Starter is also a solar powered fire starter designed to function in any environment with sunshine and tinder. It has no moving parts, flint, fuels, gases or batteries, simply a parabolic reflector that focuses all solar energy to a single point at the base of the tinder holder arm. The tinder holder arm is securely stowed in the top housing during non-use to leave room for tinder storage and it can be changed from stow configuration to fire starting configuration in seconds. The top of the device is also a flat signal mirror, providing additional versatility.
"I first played with this device a few weeks ago, before it launched, and was truly excited," said Tom Sciacca, President of CampingSurvival.com. "This fire starter is so simple, durable and easy to use. All you have to do is point it at the sun and whatever tinder you have ignites almost instantly."
Sciacca noted that the Tinder Hot Box Solar Fire Starter just over 2-1/2 inches in diameter and less than three-quarters of an inch thick, so it easily fits in a pocket. The tool itself is machined from solid aircraft aluminum and knurled for better grip. It's also watertight, to ensure that your tinder stays completely dry, even in inclement weather.
"Multi-function tools like this are really helpful in the wilderness, because you get more utility while using less space in your backpack," said Sciacca. "Obviously, it's really critical that it doesn't come up short in any one area, though. I'm happy to say that Solo Scientific always comes through with products that perform exactly as they advertise."
Solo Scientific is an innovator in wilderness survival equipment, offering other versatile products such as the ion Flashlight Fire Starter, the Snare-Vival-Trap and the Aurora Magnesium Fire Starter.
