Re: Going battery powered?

You can get an adapter, yes. I think mine's a Line 6 adapter from my One Spot power source. Anything that converts a Boss style jack to a Line 6 style jack should work.

The Sanyo looks like just the ticket - I'm getting closer!

Actually, I'm debating getting it simply so I don't have to plug in any more.

The one remaining issue is that the VL-1's power is very unfortunately the inverse of a usual pedal, and I don't see an inverter on the Sanyo.  (in other words, instead of tip = +, it's tip = -  or wait, I am getting it backward?  But you get the idea...)

But there has to be some cable that will simply invert this... right?

I love my AC33. I've tried a number of battery powered amps, and the AC33 definitely came out on top for sound & convenience. I also love my Sanyo Pedal Juice, which is a rechargeable Li-ion battery that works as a 9V power source. You can power 2A worth of stuff; of course, fewer pedals means longer run time. It will run my Boomerang III & a Blackout tuner for about 3 hours. I run the AC33 on rechargeable AAs, which also last about 3 hours, perhaps more.

Ooh, thanks for the ideas.

The AC-33 looks very nice, but it doesn't seem to do the 9V - perhaps I could have a separate battery for that?
