The Sundance Solar Fire Starter is an interesting addition to the Woodlore Fire Making Tools range, it is the World's only pocket-sized solar-powered igniter, and was used by Ray in the Ray Mears Goes Walkabout series.

Formed of a stainless-steel parabolic mirror, similar to the Olympic torch in Athens.

This lighter requires no maintenance and can be stored indefinitely.

It is designed to focus the sun's radiant energy to a point which can reach 1000 degrees. Simply place your tinder of choice between the points of the forked arm, point at the sun and it lights!

Perfect for backpacking, hiking and great as an outdoor tool.

Comes supplied with one tinder bundle.

  Simple but effective, takes a bit of practice to aim it at the sun and get the focus in the right place, but when you do, that piece of tinder goes up easily. Quite surprised how easily it worked on various materials, from the supplied fat-wood to simple shavings or a small piece of kindling. Now I just need the rain to stop.

  Having looked at these dubiously for a little while I thought why not. Delivery was quick!! The Parabolic mirror I have mixed thoughts about, I managed to get an ember which easily coaxed into flame, success. The other side is I don't think this is a reliable source but more a bit of fun. In the UK the morning sun is not strong enough even in the fine weather we have recently had, following midday though was not a problem, 15 mins propped up so there was no body movement did the trick. On a cloudy day or temps expected to be lower than 19 celcius or with a scratched mirror face might get a little frustrating.

  I am delighted with my Sundance Solar Lighter that my wife got me for Christmas. I have not yet had the chance to try it out due to the lack of sunshine, but it looks really robust and is of a convenient size to carry in a pocket, even a trouser pocket. I like it. Stuart Swanson.
