SolSource Sport Solar-Powered Stove

Editor's Rating
4.9?
Discovered on 2017-05-30

Cook your food to perfection anywhere with the SolSource Sport Solar-Powered Stove. Using the power of the sun, you can take the stove with you on the go. The secret to the SolSource Sport is in the design. The multiple panels help to reflect and intensify the heat from the sun. In the center of the SolSource Sport is a tray to hold your dish. You can use pots, pans, ceramic, metal, or even a kettle. The captured sun redirects the heat towards your dish to make cooking any dish a breeze. In fact, you can use it in full sunlight, partial sunlight, or even in the cold. As long as you can see your shadow, the SolSource Sport will work. This stove is ideal for camping, beach barbeques, tailgating, boating, and everywhere in between. It comes with a carrying bag and breaks down in just three minutes.

Review from Kickstarter
Dillon, did a good job following up on my missing part which was actually strapped behind the main panel. I applaud your customer service to follow through to help.
Now I can test it this weekend!

@Apollo Please check your email again as we did send a response some time ago, sorry for the communication error. Lets get this squared away asap so you can begin enjoying your SolSource. Awaiting your response!

Review from Kickstarter
so, my last email was April 10 regarding a piece that was missing from my shipment. I also forward an email to Dillon with a picture attached because he sent the wrong piece. I have not heard of any response, update or anything. I am missing part 4, its the piece that attaches to the Solsource and where cookware sits on top of. Still waiting....... I even provided my personal email on my last comment.

@Alekhine: This should not be the case. Please see our message to you regarding setting up a phone call to help you troubleshoot. We look forward to getting your SolSource Sport into working order!

The tabs are well snapped together that’s for sure! Wrapping wire around the panels made a slight improvement on the the focal point of light. Still took a long time to even cook an egg! So disappointing!

@Alekhine: We'd be happy to work with you to troubleshoot. Some of our customers have faced a similar issue when the side panel tabs aren't fully snapped together. Our video tutorial on connecting the side panels can help with this: https://www.oneearthdesigns.com/solsource-sport-tutorials/. Our customer service team will reach out to you to see if this helps solve the issue.

Review from Kickstarter
Finally trying out my sol source sport. Its disappointing that I have to wrap a wire around the panel so the light is more focused under the pan. If not, the light is slightly scattered making cooking a lot longer to cook anything!

@Harvey: We've run into a problem with our existing Asian shipping partner and the alternatives we've found so far are markedly more expensive than budgeted. The good news is that, we received a promising quote today and are pursuing this to see if we can engage an alternative Shipper in your region. We hope to be able to provide some good news soon!

What is happening for Japan. Customs and shipping here are very fast, but yet I have not seen or heard anything

@Paul : I believe one of our other customer service agents has ben in touch with you directly. We were concerned because addresses in your region had already been turned over to the local courier, but we were able to update your address directly with the courier and your package should now be delivered to your new address after courier pick up in Melbourne.

Review from Kickstarter
Hi all! Sorry for the lack of updates this month. International logistics has had us a bit bogged down. Orders for Australasia and Europe are currently at sea in ocean freight containers and will be distributed to your doorstep by local courier after docking in your regions. Asian orders are being shipped by country as we negotiate local logistics.

Hi guys, we have mid May and so far no information on the shipping. In your last response more than a month ago (see below) you said late April or early May... Could you please update the info? One Earth Designs 2-time creator on April 5
@Václav Koucký International shipments are looking to be cleared this month for delivery. I will update you further as more information reaches us from the fulfillment centers! A rough estimate would be late April to early May but we will know more soon.

Review from Kickstarter
An update on the Australian New Zealand delivery plans would be helpful as well. You may not have much to tell us but a weekly update shouldn't be too onerous. Helps us not feel forgotten and ignored.

@Marti haha what a great story! Glad to hear the food was recoverable! Great idea on the leg locks as well. I'll send this idea over to our design team. You should join the SolSource facebook group! You can share pictures, ask questions and talk with other people using the SolSource. Thanks so much for your support!

@Apollo I've reached out to you on a few platforms, still awaiting your response! Would really like to get this taken care of for you. The next steps need to be taken care of privately so that way we don't publicly display your information.

Review from Kickstarter
Well, today was my first test run with the mirror. Love the Sport! It did work. Had one little mishap, when I tried to move it to a better sun point, the legs buckled and the pan flew into the pool!What I was cooking landed on the Sport, so didn't lose that. Fished the pan out of the pool and tried again. It was hilarious! Anyway it all worked after that. Key is using small pans. Non stick for hi temp would be helpful and locks for the legs would be helpful. Might be helpful for each person to have their own Sport.All in all, it was a success and a lot of fun. Was able to easily dismantle and put it away. Thank you for hanging in there to get it functional and easy!

ok, I get that you are reaching out to me. Does this mean you are sending me a separate email? you are sending the missing part now? You’ve reached out, ok got it. whats the next step?
One Earth Designs
Review from Kickstarter
@Apollo We are working hard to make sure this stops happening. Reaching out to you now about your replacement part.
Apollo Balucating
Review from Kickstarter
I’m reviewing the other comments and several backers are missing parts, is there somebody in your shipping department taking one part from each to build its own complete set? Sounds too random for having different pieces missing.
Apollo Balucating
Review from Kickstarter
So with missing Part 6 and you are reaching out to me as you mentioned, Is there anything you need from me to proceed ?

Review from Kickstarter
@Apollo Sorry you have a part missing in your SolSource Sport delivery. We are reaching out to you to fix this problem.

@John It was our mistake only mailing one (1) mirror to you. We will send you another this week via USPS. Sorry!

@Alekhine Your focusing mirror is on its way via USPS and by the time you read this, you might have received the mirror already.

Just received a mirror for a SolSource sport I purchased 2 SolSource sports and will still need another mirror.

Review from Kickstarter
I picked up my SolSource today from my PO box. I am trying to assemble it and noticed that it is missing the PART 6 which holds the cookware in place. I am on a PAUSE at this point since I can’t put any cookware.

Jon Klingler - I moved the free floating latch above the metal bar before tightening the strap. I then adjust the reflector and slide the free floating latch down against the metal bar and that seems to hold everything in place.

Review from Kickstarter
Got my SolSource Sport yesterday by complete surprise. There was no shipment messages from UPS...but the doorbell rang yesterday and there it was! Put it together in a snap, but there is one question: the strap on the back meant for keeping the reflector stable and "locked in place" doesn't seem to operate the way the videos show, nor does it keep the reflector from slipping downward such that it is facing high in the sky. It would help to see a picture/video of its proper installation and operation. The strap on my unit had a free-floating locking device that wasn't doing anything, just sliding up and down the strap. I assume that the end of the strap from the top of the SolSource goes through this locking device so that you can snug up the strap and then lock it. However, there's very little remaining strap to do this with, and I can't seem to get enough tension on the strap to do a whole lot of good.

Thanks. In reviewing one of the updates, I understood the deluxe bag was to be included with the SolSource Sport + Carrying Case Bundle. Can you clarify?

Review from Kickstarter
@blueumbrella: Glad to hear you have received your SolSource Sport! You can find tutorials, including a video about packing your Sport into the carrying case here: https://www.oneearthdesigns.com/solsource-sport-tutorials/. Hope this helps!

I received my SolSource Sport + Carrying Case Bundle today (hooray!), I would like information on putting in the deluxe carrying bag. Is there a video? Does the SolSource need to disassembled, to fit in this bag? I haven’t anything yet. Thanks

@ One Earth Designs Due to change of shipping, I've emailed you my updated shipping details to you. Please kindly confirm, thank you.

@James: We have received now our fourth confirmation from UPS that all import documents (incl. the commercial invoice) are complete and correct. They assured us that the mistaken hold on your shipment has been released. Please let us know if you do not receive an email to this affect from UPS by Monday.
One Earth Designs
Review from Kickstarter
@James: We are pulling our hair out over here. We provided UPS with commercial invoices two weeks ago and confirmed by phone that they had them and that they were filled out correctly. Not only that, but UPS is taking forever to register all our backer shipments in their system! Our team is on the phone with them now AGAIN to find out what is going on. We will fill you in with any info we can get from them.

For Canadian delivery there is a delay due to lack of a commercial invoice. Please contact UPS and get our deliveries through Customs.

@R. Morgan: Your unit has arrived in the US and is currently in the US customs clearance process. We hope it will clear soon so that UPS can pick it up and deliver to your door!

@Gunsham: Thanks for reaching out! We are still working on the most effective logistics to get SolSource Sport to Mauritius. Currently, the shipping cost is very high and we are researching with our logistics partners how to minimize shipping, duties, and taxes to your location. We hope to find a good solution soon and will reach out to you to provide the details.
