When I was unpacking my stuff I had had in storage for quite a while, I came across a solar kettle that had been given to me by the inventor. I wanted to tell you about it along with another type of kettle that only requires the fire from a few twigs and leaves to boil.
I did some more research and come across a couple of others too, so here they are.
Kettles Fueled by Twigs & Leaves…
1. The Eco Billy
The Eco Billy is available in Australia at:
1. The Kelly Kettle
The Kelly Kettle* has been used on the West Coast of Ireland for over 100 years by the local fishermen, and has become a must-have item for camping, fishing, hiking and general outdoors activities. It is also essential for all emergency and Prepper survival kits.
Fill the kettle with water, light a small fire in the base, set the kettle on the base and drop additional fuel (twigs, leaves, grass, paper, etc.) down the chimney. The water boils in minutes.
Since only natural fuel is used you don’t have to worry about carrying gas or liquid fuels with you. A small handful of sticks, dry leaves or pine cones etc, is enough to boil a large amount of water for a brew, washing or water purification.
Purchase the Kelly Kettle on Amazon here.
2. The Solo Light Kettle
Cook complete meals using just the twigs, leaves, or newspaper. Creates a complete, lightweight cooking unit that fits nicely into your bug-out bag or overnight hiking pack.

Kettles Fueled by the Sun…
3. The Sun Kettle
I was lucky enough to meet Heather Stephens, an Aussie mum who designed and patented the Sun Rocket Solar Kettle, a number of years ago being the original solar kettle. I was given one of her kettles but it wasn’t until I had recently moved to my block in the country that I thought I would give it a try myself. I filled it with water and then just placed it in the sun. It takes 90minutes to reach almost 100 degrees. That was ok, I just worked on my laptop while I waited. When I was ready for a break, I had boiling water ready for a nice cup of tea.
The Sun Kettle can be purchased on Amazon here.
4. The GoSun Kettle
The GoSun Sport® is a solar oven but you can purchase a water-boiling accessory to make hot drinks and dehydrated foods in as little as 35 minutes!
Purchase the GoSun Sport on Amazon here. The kettle accessory is not available on Amazon in Australia yet but you can purchase it from the Aussie Storm Shop here.
