    Sounds like you've used these. Do this sit well side by side on the pc4? I had planned on using somethign similar to separate my whites and blues.

    I have not, but I am ordering some today and can post back my findings. I do believe that maybe CindyL had previously used them on her PC4s but could be mistaken.

    I do the same thing. I use a regular 8 port power strip plugged into my EB8 to expand ports that are all powered/programed together.

    Yeah those are priceless, got a 6-outlet 2-USB version by my bed. Charge all the various gadgets every night.

    Khalis, would this work well with LEDs to combine channels onto one outlet on a pc4 for the dimmer feature on rkl?

    I'm not familiar with the rkl specifically...but controllers use a dimming feature independent of the power cord. You could plug both lights in there and turn them non and off, but the dimming would need to be controlled either by potentiometers on the LED fixture, or by signal wires that connect the controller directly to the LED drivers.

    Gotcha. I'll look into that then. I know there's an led setting that dims up and down each cycle but didn't know about the signal wires. Thanks!!!
