    Default Does the V1 cord work with 8500s/X50s?

    As the title states, does the V1 power adapter/cord work with the Escort 8500 or X50s in a pinch?

    I'm taking my car up to Mardi Gras and there will be three drivers, we each prefer different RDs. Obviously I'll be using my V1 but they like their X50 and 8500, go figure. Is it possible for them to use my V1 hookup to power their detectors, or will they fry them?

    Excellento guys, thank you!

    It looks like they are going to be cool with only using the V1 after I showed them the GOL tests... but I sure hope I get it back in time now that I sent my baby off.... :cry: :? :!: :cry: :? :!:
