When I received the first model container I stuck 2 10W resistors in it
sitting on a heat resistant pad so that most heat transfer would be
radiation or convention. I closed the doors as much as I could and pumped
20W into it and left it overnight. The temperature of the container only
rose about 1°F. The zinc casting is a good conductor with lots of surface
