Late 2009 27" imac optical bay to ssd adapter

Anyone knows if this sata adapter will make it possible to connect a ssd to the sata port in the optical bay on a late 2009 27" iMac (I plan to make the caddy myself). IO'm a little worried about "Only for 5V devices, no 12V", but I guess 5v is OK?

Thanks!

No 2.5" drive needs 12V, 5V is fine.
