Got a Solar Brother firelighting gizmo from Survival Supplies Australia (always excellent service: no affiliation)
Weighs nothing, well 12grams; took it out the park this morning and dropped it whilst walking the hound, found it on the second lap. Smoke within 20 secs (9.30 am)

On the box says use 24 hours, which I thought was odd, until I realised it has a compartment built into it for a BIC lighter,

Highly recommended

That's awesome! Much smaller mirror size than I would have thought necessary to catch enough light to reach those temperatures.
