Maybe ultimate Heating/cooling outfit
« on: August 15, 2015, 02:10:47 am »
 :152:  :046: My electric cooling and heating garment arrived 3 days ago,, I finally had a free hour to install it and the wiring,    I then could not wait  I called out for a couple of hours leave  and went  on a test ride.  Ambient air temp when I left the house  was 86 degrees plus I had worked up a sweat in my garage .  I fired it up set the temp controller for 60 degrees. Within about 5 minutes I was feeling chilled due to sweaty T-shirt being cooled by the cooling garment.   I then pressed the thermostat setting up to 90. within about 5 minutes I was comfortably warm with the ambient temps now showing 71 in the lower valleys.   More testing on sunday

It uses a garment that is built along the lines of the astronauts temp control undergarments.  uses small tubing laced thru the search that is pumped by a kind of small box powered by 12 volts from the bike.  It uses the same set up as the 12 volt coolers  to move heat in or out ..  Basically an electronic heat pump  BUT no high pressure lines.
