If you don't mind searching for one, you could keep an eye out on garage sales and flea markets for one of those plug in 12volt coolers and then just harvest the peltier off of it.

...which is fine, but a USB port can only supply 5V and a few hundred mA.... Steve

True, my bad, I was just thinking of the peltier and not the voltage.

unitednuclear.com ebay.com dealextreme.com (didn't search, but I think they have some) Lots of options. Google is your friend if you're totally lost.
