    Whahahaha nice one, i will try to find a small packable chiropractor to go along with the pots.

    But all jokes aside here, a few molten tea candles in a tin with a lid make a good heater too, when on the move that is and you have a small max two /three person tent shelter, you can also cook on that and heat your tent safely without the danger of setting yourself on fire, works quite well.

    Any idea what the CO output would be on a pot unit like that?

    Always something to consider when heating a small area. But all you need to do is crack a window or door. My guess, in an emergency situation, you may not be in a sealed building. This thing could also come in handy for people that live in areas where blizzards hit. Keep one in the trunk, in case you get stranded in a snow storm. That way you dont risk co poisoning by leaving the car on while you sleep, and save your gas at the same time.

    Well for in a car in would just throw a cheap ski suit and some handwarmers in the trunk, toss the handwarmers in your shoes and gloves and tape one to your sternum to keep your blood warm and pumping smoothly, cold tends to make the viscosity change of all fluids, in case of blood its just the same, you want to keep that bloodflow and oxigen flow as smooth and easy as possible to all extremities.

    Not really sure why the heat from one candle would have a greater effect on warming a room if you put this device over it or not. It might be a good thing to put your hands on to warm them, but it's not going to make your room any warmer.

    The heat from the candle heats concentrates on the rod and washers, that radiates out to the pot, pots heat up, room heats up. for more heat, add larger washers and more candles, more heat gets radiated out, in any case its a nice DIY project that will be productive by its practical appication only.

    Found something better, do no hestitate to post.

    I live in Canada and it gets pretty cold here in the winter. And since our power company was privatized a few years ago we get power interruptions all the time now. So I have been pondering how to find an easy, cheap way to provide safe emergency heating indoors for times when the power goes out in winter.

    I love this setup and I am going to purchase the supplies and make it. It looks very cheap and easy!

    They do explain why this system heats the room better than if you simply used a candle. The builders say that they have used it and it heats a room very well.

    But as Wantsthetruth74 mentioned I am also interested in whether or not there would be a cardon monoxide risk. Nobody ever says that burning candles in a room is a CO risk so I am wondering why commenters on the Youtube page were suggesting that there might be a CO risk. I am genuinely interested in an answer to this, if there are any technically oriented board members out there who know about this stuff.

    an easy test would be to get a CO detector and put this "heater" in a small room with it. See how long it takes to go off (if it sets it off at all).

    I have one of these SS base camp from the collection of any old carbon you get heat and a brew, took less than 5 minutes to boil water.

    The thread is about candle powered space heaters, and yes i know what a kelly kettle is.

    Thanks for your reply.

    The candle only puts out a certain amount of energy, a fixed number of BTUs or calories. The candle will release exactly as much heat into the room, either with or without the flower pot device on top of it. The only difference is that the device will cause the heat to be released to the room more slowly. The energy will be stores in the pot a bit longer, and it will be a nice place to warm your hands. It isn't going to get your room any hotter.
