The pelt might not run at such a low V .

If you try to run a cpu fan off of 5 V you wont get it to turn on even though it probably has sufficient wattage for it.

The TEC will work at 5 volts, but it not pump as much heat as it would at 12 volts.

Well you need to make sure that it is still pumping enough heat to remain useful... if it isnt then it would only be harming whatever it is cooling
