powering from ac
I would like to power this from US ac power...obviously it needs to be rectified to DC but would using AE's CAT# TX-6310 6.3VCT 10 amp transformer connected to a bridge rectifier work? If you can PWM I assume no smoothing is needed. For temp regulation can they be switched on and off at slow(minute) intervals? I read somewhere this could be hard on them.

Good Little Device
Give it 3 amps to freeze a drop of water or grow frost. You can feel the effect with usb and a inline resistor or 12 volts dc at about 1 amp

A customer from CA
How do you power this? I have 2 nice aluminum heat sinks on it, and am powering it with a 9v battery but it does not do anything. My battery gets hot, so I am assuming that it is drawing current.....but when I measure the voltage of the battery when it is connected it reads around .4 volts and immediately returns to around 8.2 volts afterwards. Help??? Editors Note: You can not get enough current out of a 9 volt battery. You need several amps to power this. Have a look at the spec sheet

'Cool' Little Device!
This works exactly as advertised. I love it, things like this get the inventive juices flowing so to speak. However, if you don't have the supplies to cool the hot side, I would suggest buying the other peltier model, as it already has heatsinks attached! Would buy again!

Power requirements
The power requirements are clear. Multiply the Imax (max. amps) by the voltage. For example 12 volts X 8 amps = 96 watts.

However, on startup the amps are a little higher than typical ratings. I recommend a power supply of at least 125% of power consumption.

Stacking TECs works, but one should stack progressively larger or smaller TECs since the hot side is multiples more efficient that the cold side.

Example: If using TECs for cooling a CPU, put the cold side of a small TEC onto the CPU chip, put a larger TEC ontop of that, etc.

I highly recommend an aluminum plate of about 1/16" thickness between each TEC, but always as large ase the upper TEC.

Example: 1st TEC is 20mm square, second TEC is 30mm square, aluminum plate between the two is 30mm square, etc.

Now, thermal shut-off of TECs using switches such as bi-metal switches is very hard on the life of TECs.

To regulate either the hot or cold side of a TEC without harming the life of the TEC you should use a pulse width modulator. I recommend the PWM's sold specifically for this purpose that you can buy at TETech.com for about $100.00. The same PWM can be used for either the hot or cold side by simply changing a jumper wire.
