Default Thermoelectric generators?

A friend of mine found TEG Power. These are devices that produce electricity from a heat source and they seem to be pretty efficient. Does anyone know anything about this company or the nature of thermoelectric generators?

I like the idea of this device that sits on your wood stove and generates electricity. If you want ways to trickle-charge a bank of batteries and it's winter time and PV cells aren't working because they're covered with snow, this might be ideal.

Just to pricey for me.... They are about $14 per watt. Though I agree a very cool idea....

A friend of mine is head of R&D for a company trying to perfect them to a marketable level. They aren't there yet.
