      Spec sheet says 300ma, the label at back of the pedal says 500ma (4.5W@9V) and most internet sites says 200ma.

      The logical one to follow is 300ma but it would be very convenient for me to use the 200ma outlet in my power supply.

      Has anyone measured or clarified this?

      Yes, we have. Stick with 300 ma.

      Many thanks, I will do.

      It may not be your responsibility, but some online shops say 200ma.

      Just buy a bunch of 9 Volt 1 Amp power adapters Making Sure Center is Correct polarity, all is well, PitchFactor and ModFactor need 1.5 Amp.


      The half Amp overhead will never shove itself on its own. Current is drawn as needed, not forced


      Current draw is not about matching numbers, its about having enough.

      For Current (Amps) think of the waterpipe’s Diameter, Voltage the Pressure, and you’re good to go.

      Thanks, not sure I follow you. Are you suggesting for me to buy a multi socket extension lead and plug the power adaptors there? I already have the power adaptors that came with the pedals. I was trying to see if I could use my power supply (Cioks Schizophrenic), but I can’t unless I join outputs in parallel.

      Canwe go backto the single unit?











      1 amp.1,00mA works for all but the last. is all I am saying. the multiple depend, so


      You could put a three-way splitter and do all the top three at once, as well, but I like 50% extra for surges.


      As long as the Power adapter is greater than the draw, you’re fine.


      The bit about Current draws? Some folks think if you put too big a pack on, you’ll blow upo the devic


      Like 2,000mA can feed a 10mA device with a whole bunch of overhead, that just does not get sucked out, what I mean up there, but it will never shove more that its rating. Always account for surges, is a take it by feel.
      Also, the closer the power pack is to the device’s draw, the more likely it will overheat the power adapter. This is why I choose 50% over.


      Right another reason to get 50% over what the device needs is AMBIENT Temp needs to be considered especially onhot days.

      That is another benefit of the 50% over rule.


      If I was always in a hot ambient environment, going 200% over the device (double) will increase the dynamic range so it doesn’t burn-out so fast.


      Seriously for about $100-$200 if you wanna go deep, it really doesn’t take but a few weeks to get through one of the training kits. It was when I had an upcomiing hernia repair when I did the two Heathkit Analog and Digital.


      What’s Really cool is just enough of a kit to learn digital logic and you will find that you wished the had put Boolean Algebra.


      AND mean the output does not fire until ALL inputs atre present


      OR means any one or more inputs are present


      NOT just meas the opposite of the Input.


      Those three Boolean Operands make your entire circuity for the phone, tablet, pc all of them use the

      pass it on, seriously the more folks who know this the truer it gets.

      Since this is the time,courts do not work.


      I called the law offices of a Grand Spirit Law Office and I bet he does better with it, BUT keep it going ten peopleanyway think og that doubling the number of rice on a chess board story about to pharoh that did not know it would not only

      It is way past time. just everyone sends ten they send ten by morning everyone on the planet knows it and no court exists once that is done. they will try, but that is why civil war missed it. I am not a dumass, but I play one  tv

      ALL OF THE ABOVE is after the Factory one dies. In a hot & humid climate, just se if the factory one gets way hot, if yes drop it down for a lower-needs pedal and buy one that is double the factory.


      Now for your multi-tap, which I tend tend away from but that is just my OCD. Some nights I will sit in my chair with the one end on the floor and Massage to whole cable from from one end to the other, but you could fold it into cubes and it still works.

      I do have a tendency to make all smooth and  the shielding perfect aligned and it all just hocus pocus. It does last longer  the less you bend it bck&forth repeatedly, the strands can  wear out faster because the strands are bending back & forth at the same space.


      Back when I had this big fat I wanna be a sound check or rodie or run the board the recording studio let me come in and nearly kicked meout for not coiling the cables properly for the wall hooks, then I said NEW MAN instead of NOY MAN that you DO NOT WANT TO DO, apparently. I never went back.  btw the played ‘HELP!” at the Neptune Theater,and I still remember Ringo stand in their room, then the India guy that’s ging to kill him or kidnap Ringo gets into a phone booth, gets Ringo on the phone then speaks the hypnotizng code or whatever word.


      I still do it for folks, it cracks me up so much.

      its a tossup between Hard Day’s Night and that one which is better.


      Magical mystery tour the movie = wtf was that? and I thought i’d think its funny i dunno


      i had anabsolute blast all this past weekend this city lets human being sleep outside for god knows what reason, so I lit into all of them i mean i am surprised they didn’t shoot me.


      but hell, if you are going to make someone’s life miserable do it away from me.

      Wanna know how to get to Carnegie hall?


      practice praclkjabfl


      Anyways, seriously I found incorporating Boolean made me A Whole Lot better in arguments,which is pretty much why they are so fked now


      i tied them in a triple ganger i don’t know but it was funnier than hell


      it took eight years to map-out their logic structure and that would take then a century just by adding Boolean, it ain’t hard at all

      i sure ain’t paying them


      we have been so dang massively lied to on that for millennia

      none of any of this means anything since we are not worthy of exiting the test chamber


      and we will just keep repeating ourselvs or not
