  • Cool but needs heatsink

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    Super fun.
    Really cools things down.
    Connect it to an old laptop power supply. I'm using one that gives 15v at 3.5A.

    Cons:

    Without a heatsink, fan, and thermal compound, the whole thing gets really hot. If you're buying this, buy them at the same time - any CPU heatsink/fan combo should work.

    Totally don't understand the science behind it.

    OtherThoughts:

    It does need a lot of power. There's no way to make something portable with this unit.

    Bottomline:

    From supermarket room temperature beer to ice-cold refrescante in 2 minutes? You bet! But that's the only use I can think of.
