A Pedaltrain doesn't include any sort of power supply--it's just an aluminum board with velcro to mount your pedals on, and a briefcase to carry it around in. There are a couple of third-party AC adaptors which will drive it, and a few other pedals, all off of one space on a power strip. Godlyke makes one, as does Visual Sound. I believe they both run about $40 once you get all the connector cables you need. I seem to remember reading that the Line6 pedals all draw about 450mA apiece, but I'm not 100% certain. I am sure that it's much less than the 1200mA that their supply is rated at. I've also gotten 4-6 hours on the DL running it off those lithium batteries. The ones that come with the pedal are the cheapest things imaginable--don't base your performance rating on those things.
