Adjusting Immersion Heater Travel Tip
Even though the idea of heating the water with your immersion heater is great, why not use one of the camping/solar showers that you can get for $10-$20? You could put it outside your window or even just inside and still get warm water that actually comes down in a shower rather than having to bathe from a tub. I realize you need something portable, they even have pocket showers. Have you tried these? I use the $10 camping shower that has the black bag and the water is surprisingly warm. All the different kinds are available all over the internet, but this page has pictures/info on all the different kinds I am speaking of...solar, pocket, generic black bag, etc. http://www.nextag.com/camping-shower/search-html

Solar Bags for showers are not reliable, traveling for years is not a game. I want a bath every day, not just when conditions are perfect.
It is 5:00 am here in Kenya, I just heated water with this method. I will go to Kericho today, it rains every afternoon.
I have big problems to get clothes to dry after hand washing. I am 100 percent sure solar showers do not work.
I carried on for a month one time until I realized it was a mean joke.
Yes if you lived on one location, never moved and did not have electricity I could see a use.
BUT a big black tank on the roof does the same.
Solar is good if you do not travel.
I think some type of wind up or peddle method for electricity is needed.
