Default Is it safe to use this adapter

Adapter in question: Newegg.com - OKGEAR AD-Y-44-0.2M 8" SATA 15pin male to three 4pin molex female cable Adapter

I have 2 SATA power connectors on my PSU that I have no use for, and a bunch of components that require Molex.
Is it safe to split 1 SATA to 3 Molex? Or am I better off with one of the 1-to-2 or 1-to-1 options?

Components that need the juice are HDD, ODD, front panel lights/temp gauge.
I can move things around though so that 2x fans and one of the above are on the adapter if thats better.

Output on the PSU is +3.3V@17A, +5V@25A, +12V1@14A,+12V2@14A,-5V@1.0A, -12V@1.0A, +5VSB@3.0A
(yeah its junk, but plan on selling this setup and trying to keep costs down, so not replacing)

For that stuff, giver. You should be just fine.

You can get, or make like jfen did, multi sata power cables.

So I double checked my PSU before placing the order, apparently was thinking of the NEO ECO I pulled out of it.

Guess I'll just pick up some Molex Y splitters, I'm assuming these are also "giver, just fine"?
