FAQs

  1. Can I buy Sunflower1?
    • No. Sunflower1 is obsolete.
  2. How much Sun power does the Sunflower2 cast?
    • Sunflower2 comes with a circular mirror of 2 feet in diameter. So it casts about 3 square feet of sunlight. The mirror reflects most of the energy. How much power that is depends on geographic and atmospheric conditions.
  3. How far away from the target can I place the Sunflower2?
    • Energy loss due to sunlight traveling from the Sunflower2 mirror to its target is negligible. However, Sunflower2 is generally accurate within 5 degrees of the target. This works out to be less than 1 foot diameter target every 10 feet the Sunflower2 is away from the target.  However very often it is more accurate than that.
