    You can buy a "Biolite" camp stove which will charge cell phones , etc.

    beat me to it LOL

    The one i have (and it´s quite big and has maximum input power about 16volts and over 3 amps i think) is not able to to produce more than like 1,5 volts, even when was cooling it directly with running water. Then I ripped off a circuit from solar garden light,because it works like joule thief -and i was able to light up LEDs really good, but i would say Stirlings are better. Sure, this is awesome thing and you can charge batteries with it, but it is not to too much compatible, the voltage is low (amps are very good) and it is pretty expensive. Also you need the same voltage all the time to charge something safely. Without joule thief it is not so great except it can cool down things. Anyway....like the vid:)

    Thank you for an interesting video, though not quite an instructable. Gave me new bright ideas. Have a good day!

    Does the heat need to be on the bottom? I'm thinking use a black one on top (painted?), and immerse the bottom one in a container of liquid fertilizer/nitrogen, then expose the top to the sun. It'd take a few minutes to gear up, but should run fine with continued sun.

    you do understand that high nitrogen fertilizer doesnt contain liquid nitrogen right?


    The best way to use this outside to create free electricity, is to pair it with a solar cell. attach the hot side to your panel which gets quite hot naturally. attach the cold side, to a simple water evapourator, which might consist of a heatsink / aluminium sheet, with a cloth/sponge which will draw water which will evapourate keeping the cool side below air temp. or at least prevent it from balancing out as easily with the hot side.

    Keep in mind copper is a good conductor of electricity, and copper sheet can be used to transfer heat . aluminium however is good at dumping its heat.

    Not to rain on anyone's parade but Peltier modules are a VERY inefficient way to convert heat energy into electricity. They are very expensive and do not provide enough useable current to be of much use unless you just want to power up a few led's or a small fan. I thought about just attaching one to my wood stove but if you have to buy you are not going to get much bang for the buck. Interesing instruct able tho keep up the good work...,and if it were me I'd scrounge one out of an old electric refrigerator/ cooler like the Coleman line.

    The light you get from the candles themselves is way more than you'll ever get from that lightbulb.

    How about instead of candles, you try a Fresnel lens? I've seen those things make pennies explode like firecrackers. Get a small one, check on craigslist.com for old overhead projectors and such. For larger ones, check out:

    He tells you how to get them. Even if you don't plan on building one, it's a good read.

    you can also check out American Science & Surplus - LOADS of neat stuff, cheap. Ex - page size fresnel lens, $2.98

    It provides better contact between the separate pieces and therefore better heat transfer .

    so, in theory, this could be used in electronics to recover electricity in say a cpu chip? and if it was good enough recover all, well, never all but most of the electricity lost in computers? could you have a computer that runs on like 1 watt?

    No, Peltier cells use heat on one side and coolness on the other to generate energy. They are often used in computers, but in the direct opposite capacity, as when electricity is put through the cell, it moves heat from one side to the other, which is great for cooling hot components.

    Thanks for that information .

    well you have to spend some to get some but in this case save a little or some

    peltier cells arent exactly free energy, they operate at lower efficiency than conventional solar panels most of the time

    Do you realise that it's not free when you have to pay for candles / blow torch and other stuff

    I see you are on the right track, The problem being obtaining free heat & cooling at the same time, It is only because you, as most others were condition to think in strait lines, Learned from books or others that were lerned the same way.Take some time to sit in the woods alone for a day or two with nothing but your thoughts and you will find the soloution, But I will give you a hint to get you started, Swimming pools. summer sun. All you have to do is get away from tecnolagy for a short while for the lite to go on. Dont give up , your almost there.

    Why not just use the candles in lighting a room instead of using peltier modules?
