    While building my board, I had been planning to sort of daisy chain Voodoo Lab Pedal Power units by plugging a Digital or something into my Pedal Power 2+. Now I'm not sure this can be done without blowing out the two plus...

    I know it says "200 Watts Max" right under the courtesy outlet. So does anyone know the draw of the Pedal Power Digital, or if this idea works?

    EDIT: Asking specifically about the Pedal Power Digital running off the courtesy outlet.

    The accessory outlet is just like an extension cord, so you should have any issues. It will not affect the DC taps of the PP2+ as it is wired directly to the IEC power outlet. Just don't plug an amp into it.

    So if it's wired directly to the inlet, why can't you plug an amp in? Would it just hog power and starve the PP2+?

    Anyway, I'm not gonna plug my amp into a PP2+, but now I do want to plug a PP2+ into a PP2+...

    I run my ISO 5 off the courtesy outlet on my PP2+.... the plug is 200W max, and my old Marshall MG250DFX ran on 230 watts, so I'm sure the Pedal Power Digital draws way less power than that!

    You can run up to 1.6 amps (1600 mA) off of the courtesy outlet. This assumes 120 volts.
