The power adapter isn't that little. The regulation required is less than that for a PC, so it's easier to cram more power into a smaller space.

In terms of the TEC, I'm wondering if it really is a standard peltier, or another vacuum based device. There are devices other than a standard potted peltier, which may well have far higher efficiencies.
