Just recently I am attempting to create heat using electricity. I have very minimal input power which is likely the problem.

I am starting with no more than

**3.7v DC**and

**100mah**, and I need a final temperature of at least

**1500'F**

I agree that this sounds like a mighty task, but I feel like there is some way.

I found something online called an arc lighter. It uses plasma to light things on fire and requires minimal voltage, but amperage I'm not sure about.

Here is the link with specs for the Arc lighter at Walmart:

Walmart Arc Lighter

__Most Arc lighter brands claim that, "__

__With a 220mAh battery capacity, you can get about 60-100 lights per charge."__So I'm almost positive that the battery they use is a 3.7v 220mah lipo battery.

The Arc lighter above definitely has the temperature needed with full power input, but I'm wondering about this:

How much amperage does the plasma load draw from the rechargeable battery? I'm trying to figure this out. If I could find out how many milliamps plasma draws then I could

*possibly*step up my power supply.

I assumed that if an average light lasts 5 seconds, multiply that by 80 lights and you have 6 minutes of battery life. Although that doesn't sound right

Thanks-Please let me know what you think,
