ecoxotic and current usa plus on one power supply?


Am I able to put both lights on 1 power supply with the 1 to 2 adapter?

I'm not exactly how this works, would both be running off the timer?

To run multiple devices off a power supply you need to ensure that they all require the same voltage, and that that power rating of the power supply is not exceeded by the sum total of the power consumption ratings of the devices (leave a margin here, personally I prefer to run power supplies at 50% if they run for hours like our equipment does).
Also ensure you don't mix up pos/neg for DC devices....
