Teapot Boils Water In The Sun

An energy-efficient way to go camping or stay off-the-grid.

Contemporary Energy’s Solar Kettle is a solar-powered thermos that you can use in situations where a plug socket just isn’t an option – such as camping or a picnic in the middle of nowhere.

Using fold-out reflectors, the thermos redirects the sun’s energy into the container, making it easy to sterilise water, or brew a flask of tea or coffee. When not in use, the thermos looks just like any other and is easy to carry around in a daypack for when you’re on the move.

The thermos has been in development for a number of years before finally going into full production this year. Apart from a nifty camping accessory, the solar-flask could provide an excellent way to save money – or even act as a way to sterilise water in emergency situations.
