Solo Scientific Aurora Firestarter

Solo Scientific Aurora Firestarter



Created and manufactured by Solo Scientific Inc. in the USA the Tinder HOT Box Solar Fire Starter is a tinder storage box that can start a fire using solar energy, and the inside top cover is also a signal mirror! And, if will fit in your pocket! Also safe to bring with you when you fly!

The Tinder HOT Box Solar Firestarter uses a true parabolic reflector that does not have spherical aberration like a magnifying glass, and unlike a magnifying glass, focuses all of the light to a true singular point achieving much higher temperatures.

The Tinder HOT Box Solar Fire Starter can also be used to store fire starting tinder in the air/water tight tinder box portion of the unit that is sealed from the elements using an o-ring seal. This keeps the damp air/water out so your tinder always stays dry.

The top of the Tinder HOT Box Solar Fire Starter is also a signal mirror that is there when you need it!

Machined from solid aircraft aluminum, the outside of the Tinder HOT Box Solar Fire Starter is knurled for grip to make it easier for you to access your dry tinder during those cold damp outings! Works great with wild tinder such as dry leaves and easily ignites char cloth. A small piece of a charcoal briquette ignited and then transferred to a bundle of toilet or tissue paper also works great! Comes with complete instructions.

  1. Rubbish!!! Does not work!!!Review by
    SAVE YOUR MONEY!!!! Tested today in full sun for 10 minutes. and tinder never got warm!!!
    Phoned Hennie Haynes operator informed me that maybe I didn't leave it long enough.... told him it was positioned in full sun for 10 minutes.... he replied that it was cloudy there!!!! Explained I didn't live in Barry and it was sunny here in Nottinghamshire!!!! He then said that maybe the sun was not strong enough!!! Today is the 17th June, three day awau from the summer solstice and the sun was at it's highest point and if it didn't work now, at this time of year in full sun, when was it meant to??? He said that because I had used it that they could do nothing!!! Complained that it does not do what it is meant to do!!! Told I could send it back, but they would have to send it back to the company in the USA for them to test and then they would refund on there report!!! Not vey helpful member or staff!!! Thanks Hennie Haynes, great customer services on this occasion!!! :-(

  2. More than brilliant... Plus que brillant !Review by
    Still a low , "cold", winter sun.
    I tried with pieces of "amadou" (Fungus). Set it correctly.... Aimed at the sun .... : smoke appeared after less than 5 seconds (five seconds) !
    Amazing !

    Briquet solaire absolument superbe. Fabrication et finition excellentes. Efficacité redoutable. Essayé à plusieurs reprises sous un soleil hivernal. Moins de cinq secondes suffisent pour allumer de l'amadou (le champignon) correctement mis en position.
    Vraiment brillant !

  3. Brilliant !Review by
    BELGIUM, January 20th, 14:15, 1° Celsius, Sun was less than 45° high in the sky...
    My very first experience with such a lighter.
    Put a small dried punk wood splinter at the right spot...
    30 - 40 seconds later ... I got an amber !
    Just fantastic !

    Further steps : I'll try charred cloth and "amadou" (fungus).

    Top notch delivery from Heinnie.

  4. Better off with a magnifying glassReview by
    After reading the other reviews, I bought this bit of kit and maybe I just got a faulty unit but it only works in very sunny conditions. Living in the north of England means that sunny conditions only exist in fairy tales or in distant parts of the land.

    -Nicely designed
    -comes with a free leaf

    -I couldn't make it work unless in ideal conditions

    Overall, I'd only ever use this as a back up if that and I really don't feel like it was money well spent.

  5. Awesome back-up firestarterReview by
    Works well. Ignites char cloth in seconds using the sun or 2000 lumen LED flashlight.. First thoughts were it seemed a bit big and wondered how well it would work. After using it and seeing how well it works it is definitely something worth having as a back up. (Posted on )
  6. Wonderful amazing piece of kit Review by
    Think I may have been the first person to buy the from Heinnie's and im so happy I did.
    It just does not look good it works and works well.
    very easy to use, very strong and will last a long time.

    Every time iv used it iv got a red hot ember with in seconds..

    Great to have in your kit.

    And yet again HEINNIE is the cheapest place iv seen it for sale.
