Yes, that's what I'm using. I'm sure I ran out of cabinet space long before
I ran out of current capacity. I haven't checked what current I'm drawing.
It's a fair question, but since each cabinet will have its own supply, and
the heavy duty supply is only $20 or so more expensive, I just bought it and
forgot about it.
