“Using candles will never be the same!” say the inventors of the Egloo candle-powered heater. “Heat your room for 10 cents a day!”

The simple device is designed to harness and amplify the heat given off from candles by “taking advantage of features of terracotta that stores the heat and slowly and gradually releases it by radiation, even after it blows out.”

Egloo is able to 3D print the clay molds to offer these fixtures much more affordable than if they had to be hand made. 

You can preorder these candle heaters from Egloo’s IndieGoGo.

      Pretty cool, i dont think it would heat a room tho, might be better in a tent type of setting

        yeah, wanting to have an open fire in a tent that would be handy

      Here’s an excellent article on the actual Physics of this concept. In reality, tea light candles are 4x more expensive than electricity to you, the user, and are terrible for air quality vs electricity generation.

      For survival use? Well, ok, but read the article. The tea light candle actually only puts out the heat of a 50watt lightbulb, so for 200 watts of electric lightbulb, you are paying 4x for the heat you could just buy a heat-lamp bulb for.

      Ive tried this using just a terra cota pot upside down giving enough air between the pot and the dish underneath, it definitely takes the dampness out of the air….

      It wont heat a home, but they make great little space heaters on your desk if it’s sitting right next to you.
      I use one I made with clay pots and use cooking-oil candles.
