Another cool survival outdoors gadget. The tinder hotbox by Solo Scientific is a clever simple little device that allows you to start a fire when you have not matches, lighter or flame. It’s a completely solar powered fire starter.┬áThere’s no flint, no fuels, no gases, and no batteries.

At the bottom of the tinder box there is a parabolic reflector that pushes all the solar energy to one point which effectively ends up lighting the tinder. Its small lightweight design means it can be taken with you wherever you go.
