Sata power cable
#1
Has anyone tried splitting the output from the sata power cable https://store.pine64.org/?product=rockpr...ata-drives to use with 4 drives?

It's unclear to me whether the output is supposed to be 3A per module or 3A total (1.5A power module).

With drives that have low current startup like the barracuda 2.5" I feel like 3A would be plenty for 4 drives if it was 3A per module.

5V 3A per module but still not advise to run 4 drives.
