Some say "Why" and some say "Why not?"

The tweak is the non standard wiring for the POE. The information I shared is from groups that are mobile. ( cable length is less of an issue in that application)I believe the official spec on say a normal standards based 802.3bt POE or something is 48-56v, but we know Starlink POE is not quite standard, as they tweaked it somewhat. However, these POE PDE devices have boost/buck converters on their inputs and are fairly flexible, if you run a little higher voltage it will draw a little less watts and be fine. Cable length plays a role too. Longer cable, it doesn't hurt to run closer to 56v and keep the current levels lower.
