help, where to start please? 20*20*20cm fridge Answered


First post, please be nice =)

I unfortunately know absolutely nothing about electronics, or soldering... you get the idea. Clueless.

But, I need to make a 20*20*20cm fridge out of perspex (something to do with my photography, see http://www.flickr.com/photos/jingleslenobel/

I gather that a Peltier with heat sink might do it?

Would anyone be able to point me in the right direction please, in terms of making such a thing?

Many thanks

Go onlone and buy 5 or 6 USB fridges. Tear them down and place the insides in your box and your pretty much set. Though you'll need a good 5V power supply that can supply a couple of amps and a means to remove the heat from the back side of the peltier coolers. But you will need to insulate the box pretty well.

You may be better off buying an actual fridge. I could end up cheaper then trying to build your own.
