Thermoelectric Fans

I was wondering if anyone is using this type of fan and any thoughts of usefullness. The one on ebay seems to move lots of air but the demo was at 600 degrees. :o It would be nice to see what the fan RPMs are at lower temps.

Edit: I guess this would work best on a radiant (non blower) stove?

I have seen these in my Sportsman's Guide catalog for $199.00 looks viable.

I'm a little skeptical. It does seems very well made though. I don't understand why he didn't demo it on an actual stove, that seems a little odd since that is what it is made for.

I have a thermolectric fan. Save your money, it barely moves any air at all. For half the price, you can get a 120v volt fan and pay for the electricity to run it and really move some air.

Looks like hype, probably won't move enough air to make a difference. Sorry.
