Electric Cooking Pot

Our Collaborator, Robert Van Buskirk, of Kuyere, has built an initial prototype for a cook pot heated with diodes.
Robert addes:
“Here is a somewhat over-designed, 5 to 10 amp, 30 volt, voltage regulating pot. I have three offtakes runming through three paralled 3am diodes. One is for 5V power (5.5, more precisely). Then I have an offtake for direct load (13V when unloaded), and an offtake for 12V battery charging (14.5V).
I think the heating element runs at about 200W at 30V (with no off-takes of course).I plan to now close it up and insulate it.”
