Product details

Mindsets Electric Cooler Kit

• Make your own cooling or heating device
• This kit uses a Peltier cell which can heat with one side and cool with the other
• No need to solder - the cell clips onto the battery pack
• Requires four AA batteries (not included, Order Code L43AL)

What can this kit do?
Cool down or heat up your experiments with this Peltier cell and power supply. As they contain no moving parts, Peltier cells make silent coolers that are perfect for small projects or additional cooling in equipment. They can also be used as a heater or hotplate. This kit does not involve any soldering and the cell comes attached to wires that clip onto the included battery box.

What can I learn from this kit?
Peltier cells are used in cooling elements for mini fridges, lab instruments and integral circuits (ICs). When a current is passed through the cell one side heats up, removing heat from the other side so that it cools down. You can use this cell with a heatsink or a heat conductive surface to cool down an area. The amount of cooling depends on the transfer of heat from the hot side. This kit does not require soldering.
Caution: take care not to touch the hot side of the cell when it is on.

What more can I do with this kit?
Build your own heating or cooling devices around this cell or attach it to a heatsink to add more cooling to sensitive equipment. This kit requires four
AA batteries (not included, Order Code L43AL) and comes with battery box.

I have to take medicine that has to be kept cool. What is the rating of this device and supply volts?

Asked by: david
This is simply an educational kit for building a simple cooling/heating system. Full details of the products properties can be found on the datasheet https://maplindownloads.s3-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/N12JG-Peltier-module-7505.pdf We wouldn't be able to advise as to any usage outside of that environment and would certainly not recommend usage for medical purposes.

What is the maximum voltage this device will tolerate?

Asked by: Old Bloke
6V is not the max, just what 4 AAs supply. Common max Vs of Peltier devices operating above 6V are: 7V6, 9V2 and 15V4. I need a device to operate from a nominal12V supply hence the question. If the data is not immediately available to you can you identify the device so that I can research it please.

Russell, Thanks for your previous answer. Actually I am more interested in the rate of change of temperature. For example, can the peltier cell heat at a rate of 1 deg C per second? Is that possible? Or is it too fast?

Asked by: Deb12
We don't have this exact information, but it would be around that figure yes.

Please could I ask what the maximum rate of change of temperature is?

Asked by: Deb12
This would depend on what cooling you can provide to the hot side, but if ran from a mains power supply it can form ice crystals in the open air, so the temperature change would be at least 30 degrees C approx.

can it be used the other way around and generate electricity from heat/cold?

Asked by: Gary
No i am afraid not.

What is the maximum current rating of this peltier cooler N12JG? What voltage does it need for maximum current?
Asked by: Anonymous
Max current would be around 500ma, which should be achieved at around, 6V DC
