Simple, effective, cheap heater alternative to keep you warm this winter...
Additional Video Notes:
- COST: Costs mentioned in the video are base on Australian prices for Ikea candles - The may be cheaper/more expensive elsewhere
- TIME: It takes about and hour to make a noticeable difference on overall room temperature. But sitting next to it makes a huge difference. e.g. if you're working at your desk, sit it next to you
- MODIFICATIONS: The version shown in the video doesn't have any holes in the the top for the warm air to escape like many others on shown Youtube do. I have tried both configurations and my conclusion is that both options work well, but have slightly different applications
-- No holes version gets hotter and therefore is better if you are sitting next to it as you get more radiant heat
-- With holes version lets some of the hot air escape out the top and therefore fills the room with hot air, and is thus better for heating a larger area.

Ya know U Tube must have over a hundred of these flower pot heater videos on line and nobody has tried to test it correctly...Of course a clay pot with a candle burning under it will get hot and that is the way these so called “inventors” try to prove it works by using a thermometer next to or on the clay pot itself....
Why doesn't anyone film with an infrared camera to see how far out the heat radiates before rising to the ceiling? Or a less expensive method might be to put the heater on a table in the middle of a 10 by 15 room with 8 foot ceilings light it and put 5 chairs in a line a foot apart and measure the temps the farther from the heater...Will it be significantly warmer 1 foot away, 3 feet away or 5 feet away? Get my point, it may be hot enough for a small van but being an inexpensive room heater, I doubt it.
This was doable until the terra-cotta dish where you have to drill a hole into it. I wonder how many he went through that didn't crack and break. HD or Lowe's have tools at each station to cut that metal rod. Now all I have to find is a stand because I don't have the tools to make one. Now once I make it and put it into action, I hope my cat doesn't knock it over. LOL.
i tea candle is recommended to keep in your car if you live in the north if you get stuck in -20 on the road side it will keep you warm till help arrives so just a candle alone is heat..so don't know why people saying this is bogus
I tried it a few times a few years ago, bread pan method in a very small room, 10x10'. It actually worked & in dead of winter (40°f) by no means did the room get too hot but it took off the chill. Was quite paranoid it would start a house fire so with constant monitoring it did not😀☮️
If you live in an apartment...connect a space heater to the hallway and run the cord into your apartment. If anybody says anything tell them you keep tripping all the plugs in your place and smelled funny. (: Those things are a death trap. They will understand...
He’s an idiot to think that this would work, but not an idiot that he caused over 6 million viewers to click. That generated enough money to heat his house the old fashion way. I guess the jokes on us!
It's odd that this is promoted as "Living Smarter", because there's nothing smart about burning tiny toxic paraffin candles and expecting any significant heating.
Bottom line: it's an artsy-fartsy craft with no consideration of thermodynamic physics.
This fooled me years ago.We got a severe winter after not having a severe winter in years. This appeared on the internet. Many , including me were fooled. The threaded rod and bolt do get extremely hot.If you had about 50 of those under your bed you would be warm in your bed.
The initial premise of this leans monetized ignorance/trolling. The max this can do is help melt the wax so it turns all liquid if the room your in is really freezing. That way the wicks don't run out prematurely leaving a concave ring of wax around it. Besides that the average room will be just as cold but at least you can warm your hands on a heated pot.
Heat from the candle is the same whether you put a pot over it or not...you are just heating the pot up. The heat would otherwise just go into the room directly from the candle. Those candles generate about 60 watts of heat each. So 60 X 4 = 240 watts. A typical plug in electric heater consumes about 1500 watts. So yeah, not much heat here at all. If you want to heat a room in the winter you would need about 5 of these in each 200 square foot room.
I'm not buying into the whole "use as a heater" theory (thermal dynamics of a candle and the average sized room don't mesh)...if I make this, it is for the aesthetic appearance in a room or for an outdoor deck. I like the DIY feature of the project.
Trading stocks typically have the lowest fees on eToro, which is one reason why I recommend you stick to this market when starting out.
All trades charge both a spread and daily rollover fees.
It really comes down to individual trading strategies and preference. But to give you an idea, I tend to hold on to stocks for a minimum of 6 months and all other trades tend to have an average duration of about two-three weeks.
A final word on over-trading.
This is a point that I want to expand on a little more, specifically in relation to copying other traders. Below is a screenshot of my equity chart over six months. The red line shows the number of people copying me.

The same holds true for the stock market in general.
