These fans are really good ( well ours that's Not From Aldi is).
We bought it a year ago from the local family-owned stove shop and it really evened out the warmth from the woodburner

I am. I paid more in tax this month than I normally earn in a month. But, not from this mob.

Conduction I believe, as the stove heats up the fan begins to turns pushing the warm air out around the house

thanks, i had wondered if it was a similar principle to stalin's paraffin radios with a hot bit and a cool bit but it is different semis at the same temp .

very clever.

iirc there are fan assisted/ thermoelectric solid fuel (sticks etc )camping stoves that work like the paraffin radio with a hot/cold differential driving the electrons and giving a couple of watts for phones etc while you cook dinner.

using one temp /two semis is far more compact and light and might retro fit to a kelly kettle or perhaps even direct into a fire although the working temp range might be an issue . i had considered the two temp option for a kelly conversion but for the likely weight i recon a pv panel would be a better idea in most camping situations.this way looks light.

umm i detect a desire to tinker sometime soon

Next question: are they reversible? If you spin the fan, does it pump heat across the junction?

i dought it as that sort of stuff often has diodes but if not the semis might get over warm at the junction and possibly break .

Welcome. I couldn't find the other threads about them, tho. So I couldn't remember who wanted one.

Ps (just for you) Sisters of Mercy on tour...
