Version 5

     

     

     

    As, most tinkerers, Clem is in search of alternative sources of energy! The Sun does not shine in his underground bunker, so he taps into a source of power that is abundant in every household - the dreaded tea-candle! Let's face it we all have them lying around and there is at least one family member who buys them all the time. So why not use this dormant "paraffinic batteries" for a project! Clem tests out various Peltier elements and rigs up a circuit to power a simple machine that is rightfully powered by a tea-candle!
