That is to adjust the voltage. It is adjustable from 9v-14v. You can see what voltage you are putting with a multimeter. What i found was my 226 watt TEC ran best at about 13.3v.

Multimeter has 2 leads coming out. Set it to read Volts and put the black lead on the -ve terminal and the red on the +ve where the Peltier is usually attached.
