Scrap to Power
Scrap to Power aims to try and find new, useful and unusual uses for the old-broken-useless stuff we all seem to throw away too often. It doesn't always work, but I hope you find the results interesting.

Up cycle your PC fans into mini wind generators
SKU: pcftw/ebook/000
From the author - Do you have stacks of old computer equipment gathering dust ? Now you can put some of it to use! This guide shows you how to use PC fans as mini wind generators for recharging solar lights and ni-cads. You'll need some basic soldering skills, but this is otherwise a very easy project. My little wind generator makes around 1.5 - 2V in a 8mph wind, about 20ma into a ni-cad. This wasn't a huge success, I'd hoped to get a little more power out of it. Thanks for reading! Please be sure to check ScrapToPower regularly for updates, and new projects!

How to build a Thermo-electric generator
SKU: Htbateg/ebook/000
This thermoelectric generator was designed to charge a mobile phone (like my last version). Because I do not want the peltiers to over heat and melt like they have before, I was weary of having the flame too close to the peltiers. The thermoelectric generator failed to produce enough power to charge a mobile phone, it does produce enough to power a small radio or some bright LED lights. This version is much more reliable than my last one due to the better heat sink it doesn't run anywhere near as hot so the life of the peltiers should be quite long.
