Pedal Power Current Doubling Question

So I have a couple of pedals/units that need more than 250mAh - one needs around 300 and one needs 350 or so...

Now I could use a current doubler cable to combine the output of outputs 5 and 6 - and that would give me 500mAh (250 x 2) - but that only solves one pedal?

Whats if I got two current doubler cables - connected one of the cables to output 5 (250mAh) and 4 (100mAh) - would that give me 350 mAh of useable current??

...I could then do the same for outputs 6 (250mAh) and 7 (100mAh)

Would that work? or do the currents need to be matched??

Thanks!

I believe you are correct. They would each function as 350ma connections. That leaves you with 4 remaining 100ma taps.

I do the same thing on my BBE supacharger combing a 200ma and 100ma output ...as long as the output voltages are the same the current should sum

I used to power a Timeline and an Eventide Space with a PP2+. Combining 4+5 and 6+7 did the job no problem.
