    This is the basic power supply of 500 mA proposed by Boss.
    I have not paid mine: it was offered with the RC-3 Loop Station when I bought it (on the net, it is currently a small thirty euros).
    So now, for the price, you should know that you can get a power supply unit with 5 different isolated outputs (+ all the cables that go) opting for the Powerplant Junior Harley Benton.
    Because with the Boss model, there are some benefits but also a lot of disadvantages:
    + Small power supply that helps out not too expensive for a pedal or a mini pedalboard
    Boss + quality (made in China) properly made, no buzz report
    - It is necessary to use a wreath if you want to power more than a foot......

    - It is necessary to use a wreath if you want to power more than a foot (risk of interference as always with the power chain)
    - The cable has a kind of second housing containing two coils which makes it a little awkward to wrap and store
    - The transformer part that plugs into the wall is not removable (plug too: she is cast), hello whether to repair ...
    - ... And of course, sooner or later, false contact occurs and the power supply does not work anymore!
    This is what just happened to me, so in the end it is the kind of stuff that can help, but which we can not really count on lasting!

  • Perfect for small pedalboards.

    In developing my Pedalboards I went through many phases, the whole stack, transformers onion in a row on a power strip, separated with independent distribution (type chameleon, or powerplant) units but in my case there was always excluded that made me lugging her shit transformer: Whammy IV.
    Being passed over for Whammy 5, finished the AC amperage and gargantuan. With the Boss PSA-230S I feed not only my 5 whammy distortion but my Boss, my MXR Carbon Copy, my Xblender, 2 pedals Digitech X series, a freeze EH and also a Boss TU2 by which I allow myself the luxury of to travel all that.
    Ok it has a look of its phone charger with green LED, it is ugly but small because the coils are......

    Ok it has a look of its phone charger with green LED, it is ugly but small because the coils are outside the frame, a meter away on the wire which is thinner and noiseless.
    It's hard to talk too long a transformer but it has changed my life, passing the 500m / a is a blessing, the PSA-230P (red) would not issue than 200m / s. Coupled with the power ramp Boss PSA-230S should be able to support many Pedalboards. But we can not foresee everything.
