i powered my gameboy with *fire*
@sc using a peltier device as a generator
they're better known as cooling devices - you give it power, it makes one side hot and one side cold
but the reverse works just as well - make one side hotter than the other and it makes electricity
Tbh this lacks power regulation, you can fry the gb is supply more voltage that the 2 batteries, however this peltier seems to output less so ur safe.
(Btw you could optimize this setup by installing the cooler onto some frame so that you can settle candle under it. Also use copper or graphite plate on the hot side (that you heat up) peltier itself is bad at spreading heat)
@replikvlt im aware, i selected the gameboy based on the voltage i was getting out of it since it seemed to barely hit the right range
and yea i thought about that already! dont have any good candles though
@ky0ko Holy crap. Who knew that with help, fire could be used to create new life? My love for fire has suddenly increased exponentially, which is saying something because I already loved fire a lot, being a kitsune and all...
