Spent a few hours organizing autoparts/tools storage & workspace and then playing with these old peltier tiles. This is three in series. Max power I got was 0.30 volts. Still fun. But it is a shame that you can't produce much power with them. Boiling water in a glass and frozen food produced just 0.3 volts? Yikes.

See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
