    yes! thats pretty much it!
    Now wouldn't it be cool if you could retrofit that kind of technology into whatever pedals you choose?

    i use an mxr, but most of them use that same wimpy little power lead.


    I checked out the volto. Its cool. Maybe a bigger more powerful one would be good tho. Two 9v outputs is not enough.
    Alternatively have something much smaller than that and have it installed inside pedal casings and have it charge from regular AC 9v power.

Be nice not to need to rely on the power supply. Of course you can use regular batteries, but it would be even cooler if your pedals were always "on charge" when plugged into power, cos:
    1. batteries go dead
    2. dead batteries are not good for the environment, or for performance
    3. booteek pedals are a pain to change batteries in - especially if they are all hooked up to short patch leads and velcroed to your board.
    By power supply - do you mean wall warts or a supply like the voodoo labs?

    I wonder if they don't because most places have both interior and exterior electric capabilities nowadays

    I wonder if they don't because sometime during the life of the pedal any battery would be prone to leakage.

    ...or even just have pedals that you can put 9v rechargeables into which have the circuitry to allow charging of the battery when you plug in an AC power supply.

    yeh kinda- built into the pedals, so if it runs out you can switch across to 9v

    You mean a rechargeable battery like a cell phone?

    started a topic you know what would be cool?

    you know what would be cool?

    Pedals with an internal battery that charged up when you plug them into a power supply and could run just like any battery powered pedal when you unplug AC power.
    Perhaps have the option of running them on regular batteries too, so you could have 9v power, power supply power, or internal battery power.
    I never can quite trust those flimsy cables and adapters that power most power supplies.
Working...
