    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

    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
