  2. Thanks for the comment. I think this roll of Reflectix was about $7 at the
    Depot. So, all-in so far, I am out (includes the cookware and the taxes
    too) about $94. So, for under $100 you can have a decent solar cooker that
    is also very portable. This thing weighs next to nothing and once you have
    done it a couple of times, you can put it up and take it (folded flat) in a
    matter of 2 minutes. I think it’s a great piece of engineering! Thanks for
    watching… Ken

  3. I love this vid! What a great way around the sky high prices of solar
    ovens! How much did you spend in tape…. lol forget it i will look it up
    on the lowes site! Ok i found a big roll of pro grade foil tape 147.6 In.
    long and 2 inches wide for $11.98 at home depot (I am in western canada
    prices are pretty high here) I have some anchor glass cookware already. I
    love this option… thanks so much!

  4. Yes, that is the basic theory, not quite that simple, but close enough. In
    order to get the range that I needed to successfully utilize the car, the
    only solution was a 200 AH Lithium Ion battery pack and charger. This would
    have given me about 100 kms range. The only part that was a problem was the
    cost – about $6K for the setup, and I was not about to do this right now –
    too much money. A motor similar to the one I used should only cost $100 or
    so, at most, $500 for a new one. Thanks, Ken

  5. Thanks Ken! That seems so much doable for me, I’m 5′5” and 126 lb, so
    anything that’s lighter, easier, faster…Is really a plus!!!

  7. Hi – I sold the ESCORTEV last year, and it has since become a “donor” car
    for another project. Sorry that I didn’t get around to an 11th episode with
    the car, but we moved to the country and the range limitation of 25 kms (15
    miles) was just not practical.

  8. ok thanks, so if you wanted a 50kl rang you would need to have 12 battery
    set up ? not six like yours. thanks p.s. do you how much a motor like that
    cost.
