Hey all,

 

I currently have a Switronix LP150 powering both my A7s and Shogun with respective custom P-Tap cables (A7s cable is regulated, I think - Wooden Camera, Shogun cable isn't).

I'm looking to buy this thing to extend the reach of both cable:

Am I going to fry anything?

 

There's an identical model that's Wooden Camera for $10 extra bucks as well - should I go for that?

 

Thanks,
Alex

You've probably already solved this, but....

 

If everything was working properly on it's own P-tap, the splitter won't do any harm.  The only risk would be if you pulled more amperage than the battery could provide, but that wont be an issue with the a7s and the shogun.

 

I've used that exact splitter, it works great.
