Running F3 off 15v 4.0A DC power?

Hi guys,

I've got a bit of an urgent problem. We've rented an F3 for a shoot on Monday and it arrived this evening, but the rental house appears to have forgotten to include the 4-pin DC power cable (we have the charger, but not the 4-pin plug end).

The Globalmediapro V-mount battery charger I have has 4-pin DC output, but it's 15v 4.0A and I don't know if that will blow up the camera or not.

Does anyone know whether it's safe to run the F3 from a higher voltage charger like this one?

No problem to use the 4pin up to 16V
I use Vlock IDX, it has over 15V when charged.
be sure pin 1 is - and 4 is +
