WARNING: 30V was a mistake -- better to keep voltage down 12V as a beginner! I tested it over a very short time. Got the things hot over a long time with much less voltage -- apparently not enough energy was dissipated to destroy the components.
Thermistors are a type of resistors, according to Wikipedia. Two thermistors black-white (18p written on it) and gold-orange-gold-yellow (no text). If the colour coding is the same to resistors and reading up-to-bottom, the former is 8 Ohms and the last one is 4k Ohms. I tested both with 30V: the former warm, the last not warm, the current 0,0A (not measurable with my equipment).
Sizes are 0.2cm times 0.3cm for both of the components.
Accepted Power Estimate by size(tip):
3.14*(0.025m)^2 = 0.00196... so P ~=10^-3

- How to read thermistors' colour coding and what does 18p mean, 18 pico Ohms or some change?
