Question about EHX pedals that come with 9.6v 200mA adaptor?

Post by callahan09 » Fri Oct 06, 2017 1:34 pm

I just picked up two EHX pedals, the SuperEgo and the POG 2. They both came with a 9.6v 200mA AC adaptor, but I'd prefer to use my Pedal Power 2 PLUS if possible (at least for one of them, I supposed I could use the courtesy outlet on the back for the other if necessary).

I am assuming that I can use the normal black-barreled wires that came with the Pedal Power and connect to either input 5 or 6 with the DIP switch set to NORMAL? Will that work? I guess I'm thrown off by the whole 9.6v vs 9v thing. Just want to make sure before I do any plugging in and potentially damage something...

Both of these power just fine from output 5 or 6 with the corresponding DIP Switch set to Normal. Both will indeed use one of the included all black standard barrel cables. Throw one of them on 5 and the other on 6 and get back to rocking out!

About the 9 vs 9.6 thing, our outputs are actually regulated to about 9.3V. This mimics closer to what a "9V" battery actually measures when in use ;)

I hope that helps!

Thank you very much, the pedals are working perfectly!
