Abtahee Salakeen: Does thermoelectric devices generate free energy? Thermoelectric devices generate electricity from heat difference. It doesn't absorb heat. It just uses the flowing heat to generate energy. So is the energy generated by thermoelectric devices free energy? What will happen if I stack 100 of these? +GREENPOWERSCIENCE
Tony Page: Hows about making a suit full of thermal electric generators and going outside on cool nights...enough power for a flashlight? Or.... if your house has wood heat you could mount them with thermal paste to a window.hot on one side and cold on the other..the bigger the difference the more power
Domino SixO: I'm hot now
RimstarOrg: Hey Dan. This week I took apart one of the same type of water coolers as in this video. I first did the same as you, I looked behind the heat sink and saw this big thing that I thought was the Peltier module. But once I removed it, it turned out that most of that was some sort of foam insulation and the module was a small one the size of the small one you use in this video. I don't know if that's the case with yours, but I thought I'd mention it just in case.
nHeroGo: Love the fuzz filter as soon as you cut to Denise. Very cute. And fun. Dan will never run out of light.
Steve Auston: Looked on the website and didn't see any info on where to order the TEG modules from, can you share or provide a vender please? Thanks in advance and thanks for sharing your awesome ideas and tutorials.
xlargetophat: these guys are the coolest
austincb90: Dan and Denise, Thanks so much for posting this video, very informative and awesome demonstartion, it seems magic! I am a student with a project, and I was wondering if you could please provide me with some helpful info? At the voltages shown in the video, seemed about 5V, what amperage do yall measure with the associated 5V reading? Im trying to see how power much power a TEG with a booster can generate, so this would be very helpful. also, what model # TEG are yall using?
Thank you so much!
mick szym: Hello there, first of, i love your videos... it is always a pleasure...
now the question, can you please share which boost converter do you use?
MrMeat42: Hmmm so say I sew pants out of copper wire - I could power a burning laser with my pants, right? :P
MrMeat42: Nope. it works. The science of semiconductors is mysterious, and may seem like witchcraft. But all the rules of conservation of energy are at work here
MrMeat42: Oh, the "boost converter" is the joule thief? Cool.
So hey, has anyone tried to use a TEG as a TEC and noticed any difference in efficiency or delta H?
sco0212: Dan and Denise, Good work!!! Love this and is useful.
Do you mind giving me the info on where you purchase the TEG and boost converter.
I would like to try it.
GREENPOWERSCIENCE: Voltage does not = power without current and vise versa. The boost converter does the trick. = A joule thief is a minimalist self-oscillating voltage booster that is small, low-cost, and easy-to-build; typically used for driving light loads. It can use nearly all of the energy in a single-cell electric battery, even far below the voltage where other circuits consider the battery fully discharged (or "dead"). check wikipedia
Erich Fahrenholz: Dan, long time viewer, just curious--that joule thief circuit you are using...is it custom built or did you acquire it from somewhere? The reason I ask is that's incredible. You could wear this on your body and save up energy to say, charge a cell phone or provide a bright light in the dark.
cardosokilas: understanding wife... you are so lucky.
Attila Rivera: bull
P4nikStudios: so if you put that to a cell phone battery and put it in our pocket all day it would be charging your cellphone?
Timothy Tim: Hi Dan&Denise , have you checked out a You Tube video from a British gentleman named Barumman titled "Stirling Cycle" Thermomechanical Generator.
If a block of 4 or 8 of these could be combined and put on a wood pellet stove or furnace maybe it could charge up a deep cycle battery.
Dan&Denise maybe you can find a way to hook a few of these TEGS on a car's exhaust manifold or cooling system to produce electrical power to run a hydrogen generator.
Rion De Rochestia: you are both HOT!! haha <3
Also can you put some links up on where to buy a Powerful TEG?
Could this also work in a geothermal set up?
Hair Do: Thanks for the tip. I do know it's hard to earn money. But it is much better than working minimum wage at mcdonolds. Being an hair stylist does get tips and I end up making decent money. Plus it allows me to be creative sometimes and make customer's dream come to reality.
