    I need a little help from the community

    i still use the origonal voodoo labs pedal power.....i am trying to deduce a daisychain milliamp situation on my pedal board

    i have long since lost the manual and there are none avialable from the voodoo labs website

    i have emailed them 2xs and have ZERO responce from them

    Jerks!!!

    could some really admirable and cool picker kindly post the output specs on the origonal voodoo labs pedal power for me

    (specifically the output milliamps)

    I own and use the original pedal power also. I will try to dig up the manual tomorrow. I want to say 200mA at each output from memory but don't quote me on that yet.

    Can't find the manual but it looks like D.G. got you the specs. That sounds more like it too.

    andreas over at the HC boards told me that at some point in time doodoo labs posted 80mA in the manual and 100mA on the website

    to give him credability he has a website dedicated to the power specs of various pedals and power supplies so he is hip on the subject

    it seems that noone knows for sure

    I have a pedal that states in the manual that with a 9volt battery it uses 5mA but suggests that you use (when powering with a adaptor) one that supplies 100mA minimum

    WTF??!!!

    shouldn't it be the same miliamp usage battery or dc?

    i mean at 100mA you would use a battery in 30 minutes

    the pedal is a tech21 sansamp para driver di.........i use it to push my acoustic guitar through my pedal board of 10 effects

    currently the pedal power seems to be doing a fine job of running it but i am afraid that over time i will burn out the transformer or whatever other internal conponents are in there that suffer from heat/and over current draw

    any suggestions?

    andreas told me that most pedals only use about two thirds miliamps of what they recomend for whatever legal safety reasons and that if the pedal only needs 5mA for the battery to run then thats all it really needs for the dc too

    anyone have an opinion?

    You know I've e-mailed them a few times looking to get some additional barrel plug wires, and have gotten no responses. Maybe I'll have to call.

    It is actually 100ma per their specs.

    FWIW, when they started up the company, I got prompt, friendly & thorough responses to my e-mails. As time went on, the replies got slower and crankier, too. The last time anyone answered one of my questions, it sounded like the guy had just completed a weekend seminar in the Mike Fuller school of business relations.

    Sorry. I wasn't paying enough attention. That manual should still work, though. The only differences in between the PPI and the PPII were the addition of the SAG controls and the variable voltages for the Line6 type stuff. Current ratings should be the same.

    no problem

    unfortunately it looks like the pp2 has 100mA per output except for outlets 5 and 6

    and the pp1 only has 80mA perout put

    but i am trying to verify this

    if anyone has the origonal manual
