Yes. Just make sure you keep the junction box accessable to meet code. Also if you are extending the outlet to more than 75 feet away from the panel you should run 4-3 wire.

What is a peltier heat sink?

A Peltier junction is the same as a thermocouple junction, except instead of using heat to generate electric current an electric current is forced through it to move heat. Thus in a heatsink unit one junction (on the hot IC) gets cold removing heat and the other junction (on the heatsink fins) gets very hot. Thus it acts like a electric refrigeration system for the IC.It has no moving parts (except maybe a fan) like the compressor and coolant in mechanical refrigerators. It is even reversible to make a heater by just reversing the electric current. Portable electric food cooler/heater units are available, these typically plug into a car cigarette lighter outlet.
