I need to provide my arduino Uno with 12v and a step down board (12v-6v) with 12v too. Id like my setup to use a single plug. I was thinking of somehow splitting a laptop charger style 12v 2A power supply so that it was a dual supply, is this possible? Or is there an alternative way about this.
Would something like this work to split the power supply into two 12v supplies - http://www.dx.com/p/1-to-2-power-splitter-cable-for-cctv-security-system-camera-dc-12v-112982#.WJsLFDvyiUk
This is the step down board that i need to provide 12v to - https://www.pololu.com/product/2859 What is the easiest way to connect the second power wire to this board?
I have experience soldering if that helps.
Thanks in advance
