DIY: Home made thermal paste from common household ingredients

DIY: Home made thermal paste from common household ingredients

Make your own thermal paste at almost no cost easily at home. It’s so easy to make and it doesn’t require any cooking skill or blending skills! It even performs better than the factory made ones. What’s the secret? Let’s find out!
Note: No toothpaste was harmed during the making of this video. 😀

    There is a whole lot more to Mr. V than meets the eye. I would like to know what u do for a living. U have a very high calibered education gathered either from university or years working in the field of science. One really smart cookie. Thank u!!

    For Silikon Grease you can get easy Liqui Moly in a tube. I have it =)

    What about 60%? green booger.

    Great idea, thanks! Only thought I have is that, in my experience at least, petroleum jelly becomes very thin and runny , almost liquid-like at sustained higher temps. So may want to watch closely for any squeeze-out after sustained high heat loads ( especially for spring loaded heat sinks.).

    Re: 4056! hacking, I came up against that a while back. You can use a resistor outside the spec shtetl range for higher current, to a degree at least. Needed beefy heat sink , and it helps to get the input voltage closer to CV voltage (4.2). I used a shottky diode to take the 5v supply down maybe 0.5 to 0.7 ish volts under load , taking some load off the 4056. But to get the current up substantially, I also ended up using 2 or 3 4056 in parallel. This works fine and in fact there are many charging boards and other chinese electronic products using charging ic in parallel. I paralleled the module input and outputs, as well as the chip pins for the two LED indicator circuits, removing LEDs on all but one of the modules .

    Hi Do you need some great lighting for your car to help you better driving, off-road? We’re the pro auto lighting manufacturer for nearly 20 year and we’re looking for sponsorship!

    lol the electrically conductivity of your paste would have my motherboard destroyed while the large syringe of cheap thermal paste is not conductive/high resistance. I have my motherboard covered in this stuff. need to cool this 5W turned into 12W tablet somehow.

    Can you demonstrate your new paste on jr eco, as an ultra efficient sun block in your next vid?…😆

    Great, thank you!

    Nice video! I was looking around my house and found some dielectric grease for my car. It might be better than vaseline since it’s meant to withstand higher temps. I also have a small tube of graphite lubricant for locks. All I need now is that sunscreen.

    I wish we were neighbors, we could have a lot of fun and laughs together.

    I grew up with Zinc Oxide then in 2020 I needed some new Sunblock and none had it. I finally found some, but it has Titanium Oxide in it as well. The Zinc Oxide was only 4% too for a 50spf tube. Knowing now that Baby Diaper Rash has a high concentration of Zinc Oxide in it that I now know what to get (still check the label though). Thank you.

    Great stuff. More accessible to me than the "Tech Ingredients" recipe. Hope you can do a followup some time down the road. See how it holds up over time.

    i use sudocrem an irish brand nappy cream its ingredients are zinc oxide. lanolin. benzyl alcohol. benzyl benzoate. benzyl cinnamate. but it has worked well for me

    Very nice! You can bet I’ll be trying this. Thank you for sharing.

    Thank you. I needed this intro.
