Does anyone know how much power I can draw from this connector ? I have the cable part number 80 00 0 611 656 fitted, and I've connected this to a 12v - 5v converter to power my GPS unit. It works great.
But how much power can it deliver ? I'd like to connect a second 12v - 5v convertor, to charge a smart phone too.
The GPS takes 5v, 1.5A
Phone would take 5v, 2A
Which is 17.5W. Lets say each convertor consumes 100mA each, that will add another 1W, so 18.5W in total.
So the 12v switch navi/gps feed would have to deliver approx 1.5 amps. If it could deliver at least 2A, then that would be plenty of power.
Does anyone know if it can deliver 2A ? I guess I could try it, but I'd like to see if its possible before I start warming up my soldering iron. Thanks.
