Save big on your winter bills with Egloo’s electricity-free heater

egloo launches electricity free heater egloo2
As the winter months rapidly approach, everyone’s attention has no doubt started shifting from lying on the beach to how they’ll properly manage the dropping temperatures. Unfortunately for many people, this simply means a higher gas or electric bill as they plan to set their heaters to 11 for the foreseeable future. Enter Egloo, an electricity-free heater that makes use of just four small candles to raise the temperature of a small room by 10 degrees in just 30 minutes. Vastly cheaper and ecologically more friendly than traditional heaters, Egloo looks like the perfect winter companion.

After the company announced its innovative new product last year, it was unclear when exactly the Egloo heater would officially hit the market. Now, with news spreading of its impending release, more has been revealed about this unique heater. As mentioned above, the Egloo operates with the use of four miniature candles owners place inside its terra cotta-outfit dome. While the candles burn, the product’s distinctive shape allows it to gradually heat a small area around the heater — without the use of any electricity.


“Egloo is conceived for contrasting continuous waste of electricity used for warming domestic rooms, offering, as an option, a candle-powered way that provides a cheaper and more ecological energy,” the Egloo product site reads. “[It takes] advantage of features of terracotta that stores the heat and slowly and gradually releases it by radiation, even after it blows out.”

And that’s it; literally. No pesky switches to fumble around with, wires to plug in, or exorbitant bills to worry about. Furthermore, the Egloo unit is 3D-printed meaning it’s about as 21st-century as you can get regarding innovative heating solutions. Comprised of just the base, grill, and two domes, Egloo costs anywhere from $50 to $100 depending on a potential buyer’s preferred color style and glaze. Considering it’s incredibly easy to spend $50 to $100 in a single week on heat alone, the price is incredibly attractive — as is the Egloo itself.

AMD teases performance of its revolutionary 3D V-cache chip
AMD CEO holding 3D V-Cache CPU.

AMD is currently readying its new Ryzen 7 5800X3D, featuring a 3D V-cache, and it looks like we may soon have a powerful processor on our hands. AMD has teased that we can expect an up to 15% performance boost over the base Ryzen 7 5800X.

The tech giant talked about the new chip during the International Solid-State Circuits Conference (ISSSC) and revealed more information about its architecture. While the Ryzen 7 5800X3D will certainly be an improvement, will it be enough to compete with Intel's best processors?

AMD CEO presenting new CPU.

The first processor to use a 3D V-Cache technology was announced at the big AMD CES 2022 keynote. The tech was first announced at Computex 2021, and fans have been eagerly awaiting a processor that will put it to use.

That processor is the Ryzen 7 5800X3D, which seems like a strange place to start a new range of processors. AMD has its Ryzen 9 chips, after all. That's because the new Ryzen 7 can outclass AMD's Ryzen 9 5900X while gaming, despite using the same architecture.

Yuri Bubliy, the developer behind the popular DRAM Calculator for Ryzen tool, has hinted at a release date for AMD's upcoming Ryzen 6000 processors. Although the developer doesn't know the specifics, he pointed to a launch date in late January based on the latest information he's received.

All of this came from an update to Bubliy's Project Hydra tool, which is adding preliminary support for Ryzen 6000 processors in late November. Although it seems that AMD is set to launch new processors in January, we're not sure if they'll be Ryzen 6000, a Ryzen 5000 refresh, or something completely new.
