Phantom Power requirements for KMS105 & KM184

Hi. I have a question regarding the phantom power requirements for my KMS105 & KM184. I am considering purchasing a Dynacord Powermate 600 mixing console for live gig purposes. I have tried the console with my KM184 (as a acoustic guitar mic) and it sounds fantastic. However upon further reading, the console provides global 24V phantom power (not 48V). I have contacted Dynacord and they think that it will be fine, as the mA rating is higher than standard ("normally": 48V / 5mA -> Powermate 600 II 24V / 10mA), and global phantom won't damage the mic with powered plugging/unplugging (I've been advised to disengage phantom whilst plugging and unplugging). It appears to be a high quality product, but if the phantom requirements present potential problems, it may not be an appropriate choice for me.

Thanks for your help.
