I’ve had success powering my photographic setup with a DC power supply distributing through a RigRunner on Powerpoles:

Has anyone plugged an Evolution mount into something like this?  On my other set up, I use a Powerwerx variable DC supply, usually set at about 13.1V (anything more than that disagrees with my QSI).  My mount and a few other things all seem to want more than 12V, so that’s the compromise.  I wish manufacturers would just design their systems to a common voltage.  Gah!

I run all my dew heaters off a rigrunner.  I had to replace all the RCA audio jacks with power-pole connectors.
