Older EBS pedals - no battery option?
Fed up with more wires I decided to go rechargeable 9 volts on my pedals, but when I opened up my EBS UniChorus for the first time there was no battery connector at all. It's the older non-bypass one. Is this a thing?

Is there room for a battery in the box? I have found that the battery cables have a tendency to break off from the circuit board on my EBS pedals, so if you're not the first owner maybe someone has removed the battery connector after the cables broke. Check the circuit board next to the battery cutout (if there is one) and see if you can find any text next to soldering points that indicate plus, minus or 9V. And maybe post a picture here so someone with the same pedal can check it for you.

Yes there is room for a battery, but just no sign of the cable. After feeling around and looking I can't see anything and can't tell anything more without removing the board. I had some of the same suspicions you mentioned but a few days ago I asked someone selling an older BassIQ pedal in the classifieds if it would take a battery and they said no. So just trying to figure out what the deal is with them.

Some of my EBS pedals don't work with batteries anyway, it's something about the external 9V jack that stops working properly, doesn't switch back to battery power when you un-plug it, and needs replacing. That could maybe be one sneaky reason for a seller to say a pedal doesn't take a battery? I don't know about the earliest versions of EBS pedals though, maybe they did indeed not take a battery.
I think you should send an email to EBS at http://www.ebssweden.com/2009/contact.htm
, they are very helpful in my experience.
