Thermoelectric Mintyboost?

by Knightfallx66 on Fri Dec 21, 2012 7:24 pm

I noticed a lot of people are interested in solar powered, but I was wondering if it might be possible to build one based on thermoelectric instead. Any ideas if this would work?

it would if you have the knowledge to build a generator that output about 3.3v (you just use it instead of batteries)

If you are thinking peltier junctions, it is possible to do. There was a thread on this a while ago. Using waste heat from a camp stove.
