Today I have learned that Peltier devices can be used to generate electricity.
I have a set up with a 50 watt LED which is glued to a very large heat sink that cools it without any fans (that can dissipate up to 100w).
The idea of being able to sandwich the Peltier between the LED (heat source), and the large heat sink (cool surface) to generate current sounds awesome.
Before I order a 60w Peltier device off eBay, I'd like to ask:
Can I safely place this Peltier between my LED and heat sink to:
Generate electricity through the difference in surface temperature (LED bay and heat sink)?
Will my set up still work without trouble (LED works fine and heat sink still cools it down)?
