You got it
I made one with a TEC (peltier) and the fridges always win.

This works EXCELLENT! Super easy to wire in and controls the full range.


Took about 3 minutes to swap out my potentiometer for this and I feel much better having such good control.

You have a build thread on your tiny frig? I'm interested in how you have that setup and your plug setup for your temp probe.
Nice job.
