    I have a Radio Shack 800 mA wall wart supply. It is universal, ;ie, I can flip the polarity to whatever I see fit, negative or positive tip.
    I know that all of the One Spot type power supplies are basically a wall wart with high mA and a daisy chain cable.
    I think I can, but.... Can I buy a Daisy Chain, hook up to this and use it as a power supply for 4 or 5 pedals?
    I think it is basically the same.
    I'm running a Boss PSM 5 right now, so another question is, could I hook this up to the Boss and increase the ma capability of that pedal/power supply?

    If that power supply has switchable voltage, the 800 mA is the rating for it at the lowest voltage.
    For instance, if it is switchable to 5 Volts at 800 mA, then it's only good for 445 mA at 9 Volts.

    Thanks. No, not switching, the tip is just reversable so that it can be either positive or negative. Boss and many others use negative center(tip) polarity.
