Works perfectly – 1 to 4 Splitter Cable for CCTV Security System Camera (DC 12V) Reviews

Pros:
I've hacked one of these up in the past to use inside a car camera project. Works fine. Plugs are 2.1mm standard for cameras and 12V appliances.
Cons:
The shield is not a braid, its just another set of strands down between the two layers of insulator. Works fine though. Not sure what the maximum current rating is. Might be possible to exceed it if you try hard.
Other:
I've used one of these to split a power source to two cameras, a small stereo and a 4" monitor. No problems at all. There's also enough length and flex to loop cables and secure with a cable tie / slip tie. Friction-fit connectors are prone to coming undone at the worst moments.
Bottomline:
Cheaper than buying the plugs wires and socket.
