    I used the 12v supply off of a 3comm network switch. It was like 500mA.

    Only problem was it was the wrong polarity. So, I took it apart and swapped the wires.

    Then the plastic wouldn't hold itself together tightly, so I used electrical tape to put it back together. It's somewhat ghetto, but works like a charm.

    Since I only use it for my OD/dist/boosters, it never draws enough juice to get hot.

    I know this doesn't help you at all, but at least it'll bump the topic for ya. :D

    We sell them for boss/Ibanez style effects and our own effects.

    if you get one not designed for effects, it may hum.

    Interesting. I hadn't considered that.
    Thanks Mike.

    Doesn't the Pedal Power II have a 12V DC option with the DIP swithches underneath? (I may be mistaken.)

    There's a 12V One Spot or you can look at the T-Rex Juicy Lucy if you need more than 1 12V output.

    yes the 1st 2 outputs have the boss ACA (12V) option, an excellent way to get 12V.
