Has anyone any experience of these adapter cables working with the Pi?

I've got one that looks exactly the same. I've tried it out, and it works. I didn't dare leave it on too long though, as (being of the unpowered variety) they have a bit of a dodgy reputation... Sorry I couldn't be more helpful!
note: I may or may not know what I'm talking about...

I'm not a big fan of wiki's - I find them extremely hard to search.

Although I have eventually found something on one at http://elinux.org/RPi_VerifiedPeriphera ... VGA_Cables which says they may take a higher current. However it points to lots of amazon links and does not say if they are recommended or not. (all more expensive than the ebay one BTW.)

I wonder if anyone has got one and added an external 5v supply to it?
