    So I'm trying to come up with the most efficient way to power my board. I'm running an m9, m5, space, and roughly 7 "normal" draw pedals (mostly overdrive/fuzz).

    I explored the cioks route, and there isn't a single unit capable of powering my board, so I'm thinking maybe 2x pp2+. I'm trying to limit the number of wall-warts so let me know if this makes sense:

    (1) pp2+ plugged into a second pp2+ courtesy outlet. m9 powered from remaining courtesy outlet. space powered using a current doubling cable out of (1) set of 5 & 6. m5 powered using current doubling cable out of other set of 5 & 6. remaining pedals powered out of standard 9v taps.

    will this work? am I drawing too much power through one wall outlet? I'm no electrical engineer and I know there are many more guys more knowledgeable on this topic than myself.

    I'm looking forward to your advice :aok

    There was just another thread about this.

    No. It's basically like an extension cord. You're good to go.

    the MXR MC-403 should work better IMO.

    I was checking this guy out but I don't think it fits under pedaltrain boards. plus I've already got one pp2+ :bonk

    A voodoo labs guy told me you can basically chain like 6 of them together so I'm pretty sure that's okay.
