Almost like that, but I was going to use a peltier junction to cool it, not warm it. Read all about it f you want, but 5 volts isnt enough to power it. http://www.popsci.com/popsci/how2/ar...695635,00.html
Thanks All

I did do a mouse mod, it turned out okay, but it was only my first one. It has a few LEDs in it and an engraved logo.
