    The Giz Wiz Show 1623 for May 19th 2017, Our 106th Independent Production. 

    We're Celebrating Two Years+ Of Independent Production! Thanks to our wonderful Patreon supporters The Giz Wiz Show continues into year three!

And thank you for doing that! Our show wouldn't exist without our viewer's support, but a bit more support would be a big help.

    And now onto this week's show, starting with a really unique and inventive gadget!

     

    Make a single Tea Light candle up to 100 times brighter!

     

    That's what Caframo says about their JOI Lamp Tea Light Candle Powered LED Lamp. And yes, it does work! The JOI lamps doesn't use batteries, solar or wall power to create its own light. It does use thermo-electric technology to transform the energy of a single tea light candle into enough light to illuminate your night. Within about four minutes of lighting it, JOI begins to convert the heat of the candle into more than 18 times the light generated by the tea light alone. The box copy says: '100X brighter than one tea light candle” and that sounds very reasonable after this using really unusual lamp. The design makes it an ideal centerpiece and the technology makes it perfect for indoor or outdoor lighting. Watch the video to see how versatile this lamp design is with dozen of various positions for the movable, extending arms, and adjustable shade. On Amazon it got 4.7 out of 5 stars from 65 reviewers, so people do love this lantern. It's not inexpensive at about $107.00 on Amazon, but I have seen it as low as $89 by doing a web search.
