    Sure, I don't see why it wouldn't.

    That's what I thought. It says it's rated for 8 amps. The beacons draw .15, I think.

    I think, but not totally certain. I think the male end of a 12v setup has a fuse inside of the plug. So if it got overpowered the fuse would blow. I'm sure it'll be fine.

    lets see they are rated for 8amps and the beacons draw .15 of an amp so 2 beacons will draw less than one amp

    I know...pretty simple math. .15 amps and .15 amps is .3 amps, which is less than 8 amps. I didn't know if there was more to it than that.
    Thanks.
