An attempt to make a good solar reflector out of mirror pieces and a Direct TV satellite dish. If I had it to do again I would have had an actual glass cutter and cut 1” squares…
Peltier Coolers or Thermal Electric Coolers are used to make things hot or cold but have another cool use. Apply a heat source to one side and keep the other side cool and the Peltier generates electricity.
Adding a solar panel to a RV can provide convenient daily battery maintenance and can extend power available while camping away from civilization.
Here I show how to create some usable electricity from a candle and a peltier cooler.
Materials include a candle, metal plate, four nuts, four long bolts, a peltier cooler, heat sink, and thermal grease.
