If you burn candles, a couple of these could reduce heating costs… or heat your safe house while giving you some much needed light. The multi-core steel and ceramic radiator absorbs and concentrates the thermal energy of the candle and converts it into dry radiant space heat. Internal temperatures are over 500 deg and typical surface temperatures are 160-180 deg. This is a simple ingenious device that harvests the normally lost thermal energy of a candle flame.
The inventor, Doyle Doss, even has detailed instructions on how to make one on the website, or you could check out our How To Make the Candle Power Space Heater post. This little guy gives you the ability to heat your house, light your house and maybe even cover-up the stench on the undead.
If you are worried about the science of this design, read this…
“Candle Holder does not “make” additional heat — what it does is short stop the loss of heat to the ceiling and creates a radiant heater at
table level. And it is almost always guys who over analyze this simple
device.” -Doyle Doss, inventor
