I have a heating element commonly used for electric stove ,its 1500 watts 230V what i need is reduce the size to maximum because i cant fix it in my project which don't have enough space to fix the entire element and i dont need very high temperature too (a photo of element is attached here for reference),So suggest me some ideas to reduce the length.
What my opinion is reduce the size by reducing the length and applying a 12v source but i use a small power source 12v-1.5A only
if i need to bring the current below 1.5A in 12v so i need to use 1/2 of total length of element(approx only).but still longer so can i use a resistor in series?
what watts rated should be used?
is there any other method of heating using small area and little power,which should be durable.
