Bluetooth Hockey Puck

Shaped like a thick hockey puck, this outstanding Bluetooth® speaker won’t knock your teeth out (like a real hockey puck) but it might blow your mind. Rechargeable and portable, the speaker measures 2-1/2” dia x 1-1/2” thick in dark blue with the logo of the bank whose name adorns a hockey rink in Our Nation's Capital. Feel free to cover it up, like the Blackhawks fans in our office did. Rechargeable batteries are lithium, which is better, and it charges via the included USB to micro-USB cord. Comes with a microphone, microSD card slot, volume control, play/pause/phone selector, and next-song feature. Sounds good enough for Paul to drown out Pat's ambient Australian heavy metal holiday music. Priced at half the MSRP and is perfect for the pool, park or cubicle.

Heating Element

To heat what is anybody's guess, but it's a U-shaped heating element, 8-3/8" x 2-5/8" x 1/4" dia with a 107 Ohm Resistance and rubber grommets above the 3/16" wide power terminals. When CJ heated it up to 120F, those grommets got gooey, so he says use lower voltage DC.

Light On A Cord

You've seen cords on lights—pull the cord, turn on the ceiling light—right? Well, this is the reverse. Tie the cord onto something on the ceiling, pull the bulb on the bottom and it lights up. Seems backwards, because it is, but it somehow makes sense when you want the light on the end of the rope, not on the ceiling, and don't you think you've been doing things right-side-up for long enough? Bulb is 40 lumens, cool white for indoors, and runs on (3) “AAA” batteries that the manufacturer didn't include.

Go Hollywood

It's the Hollywood Selfie Pole Monopod, and the name alone is making us go all soft in the middle. Starts out 8-1/2” long and extends to a very sturdy 39” with a camera thread at the end to hold the cell-phone holder. And like many people in Hollywoodland, it probably won't work as intended. The handle was meant to recharge with the included USB cord and connect to your phone with Bluetooth, however we've found that the non-replaceable batteries are mostly non-working or only hold a charge for a few minutes, like a faded actor's career. Sold for the robust stick itself because your arms aren't long enough. And you can always repurpose it for long distant tasks.

PELTIER HEAT PUMP

High tech comes to Am Sci & Surp!! It is here in the form of a Peltier junction, a thermo-electric device that translates electric power into heat, and perversely, into cool. Apply current at 15VDC to the gizmos and they extract thermal energy from one face, thereby cooling it. The heat is dumped onto the other face, thereby heating it. Please note: you must use a heat sink on the hot side or the junction will fry itself, since it can quickly create a 65° C temperature differential in a no load situation. Stack two, or build a cascade to increase the thermal differential created. Or run it backwards. Apply heat or cold to the relevant face and produce a current. Amazing for science projects and experiments. Practical for coffee warmers, beer coolers and mini-refrigerator or warming oven applications. They come with a datasheet. Large is 1-9/16" sq. x 3/16" thick and draws 6A and small is 1-1/4" sq. x 3/16" thick and draws 3A.
