    Can anyone recommend some brands (other than Dunlop) for 18v adapters? Looking to buy more than one (possible 3 total) for some pedals (Belle Epoch, SL Drive) and want a brand that can safely power these pedals without causing damage of course. I know the Dunlop's are ok, but there are bit pricey it seems and since I want to get maybe 2 or 3 of them, hoping there is safe, less expensive alternative out there.
    Thanks.

    I just bought two 18V pedals this week (Infinity, Frost Bite), but I'm powering them with a cioks DC10

    The wallwart that came with the Infinity (300mA) is quite tiny and looks like it wouldn't be expensive

    Maybe check with Pigtronix if that's enough amperage, they might be OK value

    Pigtronix makes the thin kind that take up less room. Mine don't take alot of current so you have to double check that. been using um for years till Fri when i got a psu that can handle 18v.
