    I've had one for quite some time and have no complaints. If you don't need that sag feature on the Voodoo Lab power, save 50 bucks and get this.

    I own one and in all honesty, I'm glad I picked this up instead of the PP2. I find it just as effective and for a ton cheaper (I picked one of these up when GC was selling them for $100 each). Never had a problem and runs like a beauty. I highly recommend it if you don't really need a SAG feature and an additional outlet in the back. I have to say, the additional outlet is very useful...but I don't need a SAG feature so I'm willing to make due $50ish less for this.

    I did some negotiating to get that price.

    I've got 2 of them Jack, great units. $109 is a great deal from that Ebay dealer.

    I was considering getting the Supa-Charger and a friend called me last month when he stopped by GC.

    "Hey, they have a new one here for $79.00. You want me to pick it up for you?"

    "Yes please."

    Haven't used it yet, but it's a nice looking little kit.

    I don't know about the $79 markup. But the $100 markup was a promo/sale that GC had for a while and eventually changed back (YMMV). I guess some sellers felt that they should sell it for the value they bought it for. Plus we're in a crummy economy right now so things need to really be priced to sell if you want them to sell.

    I use BBE under my Pedaltrain PT-2 and I am very much satisfied.
    It was exactly what I needed. I highly recommend :AOK

    Loving my SupaCharger.
    Much better than the Godlyke Powerall I used to have; the Godlyke eventually started frying a certain capacitor on all of my DIY pedals, but no longer having that problem with the isolated outputs on the Supa.
    Highly recommended.

    Awesome power supply. I paid $100 at Guitar Center. Can't say enough good about it.

    I have a PP2+ and I've got a friend uses the BBE. It seems that the PP2+ has a electromagnetic (or what do you call it...) field above it so placing tuners, pedals and stuff above could induce hum. I've tried ... a TU12 registers a G# or something and some fuzz/transistor-based drives will hum.

    But not so for the BBE.

    And I paid a premium for the PP2+ here in Singapore... I guess nothing is perfect...

    Its also worth mentioning that the BBE can take 110 or 240 volts, so it can be used in different continents. It was much cheaper for me to import the BBE from the US than it was to buy the PP2 locally, and it has performed great (weekly gigs, 7 pedals) so far.

    Exactly the same for me :)
    I bought it from ebay-shop in USA, payed shipping, all customs/taxes and it was 120 EUR alltogether, which is anyway 80 EUR cheaper than PP2+ costs here :)

    does anybody know if the supa-charger fits underneath the pedaltrain jr (or the pedaltrain mini for that matter)?
