i made a mini rocket stove, to scale from one inch pipe . i was burning splinters and it just would up draft,
whats the deal ?
slightly off topic but could a small turbine be incorporated in the flue to generate power to charge batteries or run low voltage lighting?
Really small fuel, yes. The kind of stuff you get out of the way before you set up your tent, and don't need any tools to break it up to make it small enough to fit in.
You're talking about an L shaped rocket stove with a side load right? I don't know why you want one that small>>? did a toothpick factory go out of business and give you a huge amount of toothpicks?
Specs: Dual Power Output 4.5 VDC / 1.2 amps or 10 VDC / 125+ ma /. Can be ganged and wired together in multiples to achieve higher voltages and amperage. Life expectancy - 200,000 hrs. All aluminum construction, dimensions - 5" X 3" X 3".
Applications: Experiment with and demonstrate the practical applications of thermoelectric generators such as; charging batteries, cellphones and other electronic devices. All that is required to generate electricity is a source of heat (180-F to 300-F) Attach to side off wood stove, clamp to stove pipe, oil or alcohol lamp, candle flame, campfire, solar, etc.

Switching from electric heat to a rocket mass heater reduces your carbon footprint as much as parking 7 cars. Tiny ad:
