Java Juice

Just like coffee powers you, it can also power your projects!

Hello! This is my first Hackaday submission and it will be for the 2018 Hackaday Prize!

The idea is fairly simple - your coffee or hot drink is typically very hot and takes a while to cool down. Not to mention, most people have a tendency to drink one to three (or more!) hot drinks a day; sometimes to stay sane. I want to harness this addi - I mean energy, slowly, and overtime.

This concept will take advantage of the TEG (i.e. peltier device) as the main energy harvesting unit. The device will feed its power into a energy harvesting controller IC which will store the minuscule energy amounts from your cooling drink into 18650 li-ion batteries. Once the batteries are charged an adequate amount, the batteries can be then discharged via a USB cable!

From there you can use that energy to power your projects, your phone, or your gadgets! This is a proof of concept project, but hopefully one day I can tell someone I power my phone with coffee!

Enjoy this project?
