Hi ,
I'm trying to power a Rear view mirror camera screen that fits to my current rear view mirror and an fm transmitter. Can I use a cigarette lighter extension to power both the Camera and the FM transmitter? Will this cause battery issues further down the line?. Its a 2 ended extension.
For reference the camera is a Chortau Rear and Front Dash cam screen.
Thanks!!

I have run multiple devices from a multi-outlet adapter for quite a few years with no issue. The power required for a camera, charging a phone and charging a digital camera at the same time is pretty negligible.
