Thermoelectric fan on top of stove

    Generates it's own electricity from the heat off stoves. Operates best between 500-700 degrees F I guess. Forces hot air to floor and helps evenly distribute the overall air temp in tent whatever.

    I saw one for 75% off and jumped on it. Can't give you a report yet but I will. Plan on using it in a ice fishing house and over wood burning stove in a small cabin that has no insulation.

    Spent a week using the fan in a rat shack in northern Minnesota with lows ranging from -14 to -18 and I was very suprised how well this thing works. The shack has no insulation and a tin roof. I have in the past woken up in the bunk room reading -4 and with the fan I was finding the temp averaged around +45.

    This thing really works. The only neg I found was drying things out above the stove was not as fast for obvious reasons...the heat was being evenly distributed throughout the shack.

    Yes, they work very well. Now imagine of you could get your hands on some insulation and some heat bricks for around the fireplace...

    Total comfort.
