I am looking at purchasing this power splitter for the purposes of powering several identical 12V/0.5A devices:
The goal is to avoid a mess of "wall warts" and the corresponding proliferation of power strips throughout my office.
Can this product be used for other devices (not security cameras) with similar power requirements?
If I hook up 8 devices that each take 12 volts and 0.5 amps then is this power splitter a safe option? There are other splitter cables on the market, but since this one is packaged with the power supply I am assuming it can handle a total of 4A draw (80% of the listed 5A).
Will the total power current draw at the wall (120V circuit) be the stated 0.8 amps? Or will it be 1.6 amps, or 5 amps?
