In recent papers, a two-temperature model for thermoelectric effects has been introduced. That model is able to account for the difference in phonon and electron temperature and may open new lines of research in thermoelectricity. Here, we perform a scrutiny of that model in order to check its physical standing. We further provide some useful characteristic numbers which may be used in practical applications in order to reduce to a simpler level the analysis. The consequences of that model on the usual Kelvin relations are pointed out, as well.
