Materials:
Cart
Marine Battery
Solar Panel
Power Inverter
Heating Panel
Electrical Wires
Steel Box
Voltage Meter

Step 1: Getting Started

To begin, you will need to use some sort of cart as your base. I used an old pressure washer.

Step 2: Power Inverter, Solar Panel & Battery.

The pressure washer comes with two metal plates, mount the power inverter and solar panel onto them. Place the battery on to the base of the solar cooker and use battery hold-down brackets to keep it from moving/falling.

Step 3: Voltage Meter

The Volt Meter is used to keep track of the battery voltage. Mount it onto the cart.

Step 4: Making the "StoveTop"

Use any aluminum plate and place a heating panel under it. Once that is done, place the whole thing onto the steel box.

Step 5: Wiring

Connect the positive wires onto the fuse box and ground the cart to complete the circuit. Add a switch to prevent the solar cooker from always being on.

Step 6: Testing

Once the wiring is done, flip the switch on, test the heat. and get to cooking!
