You could run a PDU in paralallel so that you don't use more current than
the wires are rated for (although the PDU should trip the circuti anyways
in case you overload it). Only problem is matching the receptacles. You
probably don't want to half-ass it, so I'd just add an extra PDU and run an
extra ethernet cable so you can monitor it.
