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.
ARSA CD: 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.
Steve Quint: Dan i've seen some of you vid's on fresnel lens and on teg's so do you think you could join them in a sample vid. also im sure you've used sterling engines and teg's
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?
GREENPOWERSCIENCE: Thank you for the great comment!
icebluscorpion: you two are the best keep it up^^
GREENPOWERSCIENCE: Thank You:-)
ame waters: just luv you Two !!!!!
morbit m: YOU 2 ARE GENIUSES!! this is cool. . I subscribed
jaborla: Megan Fox can put an end to the energy crisis.
ze62948: will it melt at,lets say 2000Fº?
KONGNO2000: i powered a fan to maintain a good combustion of the wood one for the air chamber and the other one for the heat sink to keep the module from over heating...
lakecrab: Great Man-cave backdrop.
Tee-Bone!!: I'm thinking about the temperature difference between most appliances or motor systems and outdoors. The freon in the frig system gets extremely cold and also the dissipated heat (very hot). Same principle with the the different heaters in the home (air & water), and engines (block, or hottest point (ignition coil spark...) and coldest,...a/c freon again or in winter, again outside air.
What have i missed??
We need current to charge caps, to recycle energy.
Tee-Bone!!: What do you do with the current?? Charge capacitors....???
alexszukala: What are the stats on that TEG used in the video?
KONGNO2000: nice video, i have tried to integrate the thermo electric module on my homemade wood stove and i'm satisfied with the result..
kevin jones: moron DENISE ! air head
filtertheblood: your wife is hot
FixedByDoc: i want to put some on my cast iron woodstove. i know they come that way now but mine doesnt have one on it. i could use a lot of these.
Paolo Coppola: MORE DENISE!!!!!
SteezyOtis: whats the boost controller do? could i not power a led without one?
NLStitch: Could a TEG charge a 12V car battery if i hook some up to a woodburner?
livingthealaskadream: Is it possible to get a large enough generator attached to a woodstove that would charge a 12v battery bank when solar is limited in the Alaskan winter months?
John Martin: quick question... do you know how long Peltier thermcouplers been around? remember very closely... we make these coolers and heaters for campers tents etc at a low 4 volts to 12 vdc .. they are still amazing items for medical organ transportation with out freezer burn or use of dry ice...has been introduced in Automotive industries for years also. 12 vdc home freezers etc... have fun >^.^<
Bruce Morrow: You guys ever think of showing one of these generators that run off a woodstove for us Northeners?
vijay chand: You have completed every thing , there is nothing left for me to invent. But soon I will show you one video regarding lunarcell .from India phone 9885206777. I hope it is not yet invented if at all I am alive after 21st dec 2012. not kidding.
Paco Garcia: were can i buy one of those thermoelectric generator?
GREENPOWERSCIENCE: Wow, thank you for the nice compliments!
Dan & Denise
Egor Ponamarchuk: You're the hottest couple in the world. Enjoying your videos. Greatings from Russia&Ukraine. Thanks.
flamedrag18: denise started blushing :P
marshall min: or use joule thief as the converter
gipeenuts: Are there bigger panels? Maybe tile sized?
Wavefront101: Nm, I think I found the converter. The part name is "ELC-W0422-1" Unipolar Boost Converter Circuit" from custom thermoelectric. Runs as low as 80mV to .8 volts.
Wavefront101: Can you tell us the name and specs of the boost converter?
lordpimpd: If I bury it deep enough under ground the heat from the earth should take care one side, however I still need to come up with just as an efficient way to cool it. I also need to do this without the device becoming one ambient temperature. An ideas on how to efficiently to solve this problem ?
Lisandro Garcia: In reality they are both esentually the same device, they both use bismuth telluride semi conductors, diodes to be exact. Love the devices though, i have a whole pack of them, use them in my research.
