Hi i'm not sure if this is the right discussion place but i couldn't find a similar post anywhere.

I was wondering what people would recommend as power options/cables for powering numerous accessories from the rig. Currently i have a Steadicam shadow and use a 3 pin lemo to 4x dtap (ptap) splitter to power my bartech and bolt. I then use the main power socket to power the camera.

I was wondering if i used the free dtaps to power a cinetape and or wave would i be drawing too much power from the 3pin lemo?
Should i split the power to the camera to feed one of the others or is there a better option? I have hirose as well but i know you can't draw too much from them.
Happy to hear any suggestions and to hear what how you approach this issue. I would prefer not to fly with the camera battery if possible.
Many thanks
