I doubt that you would get TRUE temps. The reason why, thermistors read a resistance. If the temps go up the resistance goes down. If you add MORE wire to it your adding more resistance, thus throwing off the calibration.


Though I don't know if the few ohms that you do add will count that much.


Well that's how it works.
