HAHA! If you took the time to sand the pennies down and used conductive epoxy....I think you would have a pretty good solution! Creative!

Actually, aluminum is a slightly better conductor of heat than copper. Maybe you could do something similar with a soft drink can and have more surface area to transfer heat. Plus, it would be thinner and have greater ability to remove heat.

copper is the better conductor. that's why "good" heat sinks are made of copper instead of aluminum. most heat sinks are aluminum because it's cheep and pc companies like cheep

yep. Copper is better conductor or heat/electricity aswell. 's why its used in things like wires for electronics and heatsinks for computers. Aluminum is used aswell, but its cheaper i think
