My electrical skills being a little foggy, why was the Pelt at 156w use 16.1amps and 15.8volts vice the 172w one use 11.3- less amps but need more voltage.

Im guessing that if i go with the slightly less powerful 156w one i can use the ds-304m bench supply which goes to 15v-max and avoid all the trouble im having finding a ps that does the 11 amps+ but needs a unreachable 24.6v with the above powersupply.

Is there anything wrong with my logic prior to me spending my money which will be sometime shortly after friday?
If you already have a supply that can handle the 156watt tec then that is the best place to start. What is the amperage rating on the 12v supply you have?
