Can you use an RJ45 Coupler with POE?

I need to join two Cat5E cables that use POE.
Will I have any issues using an RJ45 coupler to join them?

Many thanks,

Tim.

No, it is fine to use a coupler.

If it is outdoors, please make sure that you fully weatherproof the connection.
Water ingress to the RJ45 connectors and corrosion of the sprung copper fingers within is still a big cause of camera failures.

Just a quick question...

Will any female to female RJ45 coupler be ok with POE or can there be any risks with power going through them, overheating, etc?

thankyou.
