Our stated power requirements were based on an early
prototype and are overly conservative. We've done extensive testing and
we have updated the spec as follows:

MF, TF, and PF can operate from a 5W power source that supplies
regulated 9 to 12VDC max.

The minimum required power ranges from a maximum of 4.5W at power up
(all LEDs lit) to about 3.6W in normal operation depending on how many LEDs are lit.

For a regulated 12VDC,

the current requirement is 380mA at power up and 300mA in normal operation. Do not use unregulated 12V.

For a regulated 9VDC,

the current requirement is 500 mA at power up and 400mA in normal operartion.

The Voodoo Lab ISO-5's 12VDC output is conservatively rated at 300mA.

It can supply 12VDC @ 400mA with all outputs fully loaded and low
AC line level.

The ISO-5 can easily run one Factor pedal from its 12VDC/300mA output.

We apologize for any grief that we've caused by our original, overly
conservative spec.
