12v dc car bat on a peltier/ tec, keeps blowing out, wat do i need 2 make it work?
i'm running a 168w tec of a 12v dc car battery that i want to turn into a in car fridge/drink cooler and i want it to run of a 12v connection off a car battery. the two tec's that i bought died(aka not working at all) after i connected it off a 12v dc car battery. what resistors, etc do i need to make it run on 12v and not down it to a lower voltage?
also how would the answer differ if i wanted to upgrade to a 400w tec?
