I have built another units of SIAP Solar Cooker. It is an improvement from SIAPv5.0 and therefore it is named SIAPv5.2. I tested it over the past two weekends and currently with some improvements made, SIAPv5.2 could achieve 115C.

I am going to test SIAPv5.2 further after I have made some further improvements this week. I trust that it could achieve higher temperature.

This is the unit that I will present to the potential sponsor of this project. Hopefully, it could impress him and get the necessary funds for me to proceed with further Solar activities.

On last Saturday (26/1), I tried out the improved Solar Cooker, which is now known as SIAPv5.3.

With one and a half pack of hotdog in a blacken standless steel pot inside SIAPv5.3, the experiment started at around 11am.

The hotgods were straight from the freezer, they were therefore icy cold. By about 1:00pm, the temperature has reached a record high (of the day) of around 115C.

The hotdogs were cooked, though not baked the way I expected them to be. Further exeperiment is necessary to establish whether SIAPv5.3 is ready to be presented to the Sponsor.
