    Hi guys,

    Ok so i'm making a energy charger whilst camping and am researching into new sources of energy.

    One is thermoelectric. Was thinking I might be able to intergrate into a jacket, maybe a peg you stick in the ground or the ground sheet under the tent or any source with the biggest difference in temperatures.

    All the videos online use ice or a blow torch which is quite extreme temperatures compared to the camping environment. Does anyone know what difference in temperature would be needed to produce any power?

    Another concept is a piezo electric generator, harnessing the vibrating energy whilst walking. I love the idea but not sure if it will produce enough power.

    Any input would be great! Thanks if you can help

    Tom

    How about using piezo electric or similar in a ruck sack. The up and down motion of walking could generate energy.

    ...not sure how much energy tho. Will look into
