I don't know my peltier unit's specification, Help needed to identify Answered
I have extracted a peltier TEC unit from my small USB fridge.
I intend to put the cooling unit into a bigger and more better casing so it'll cool other things rather than a can softdrink.
The problem is, it's just getting 18' celcius and I need it to be lower than that.
I've tried using a USB charger that outputs the usual usb 5V but 1 amp, the temp just goes down 1-2' celcius.
I want to put a higher voltage power into the cooling unit, but I'm afraid that I'll just burn the thing out.
But the problem is, I don't know the spec of the peltier unit that I have.
So, can anybody tell me the maximum voltage and amps that the peltier unit can handle?
