since that one gets power from usb, i wouldnt. mist has said you want 3A coming through, and even if a usb wall plug will pump out that (though most are 1-2.1a or so), it doesnt mean the cable itself can push that much amp, plus i dont see specific measurements. the one i got is this, and it works fine:
