    It's got a "courtesy outlet" so you can plug a regular AC adapter into it. So if you've got something that doesn't power very easily from the PP2+, you can just use the courtesy outlet to power it with its own AC adapter.

    Are you Euro based? It sounds like you have a 220V version. If that's the case, it would be a male IEC outlet.

    If you had an effect, like a whammy, which needed what the pp2 couldnt offer, you just plug it into the courtesy outlet, thereby keeping everything tidy on the board, rather than multiple things to plug in all the time.

    Oh, of course, as an Australian, they would still not figure a use for it.........

    IEC cable. I use one to daisy chain multiple PP2+'s for my board (yes, just that many pedals...)
