Can PedalPower 2 power a Boss RC-20XL looper?

    Hi everyone, does anyone have experience of using the Voodoo Labs Pedal Power 2 power supply with a Boss RC-20XL Loop Station pedal?

    I rather embarassingly used to own a PP2 (before selling it) and remember that there were two switches to change the output on supplies 5 and 6 to Line 6 pedal requirements-which I think was also 200ma? (like the Boss Loop Station).

    Do these outputs sufficiently power the Loop Station before I buy another PP2 again in error!?

    Many thanks for any help you can give.

    The RC20-XL takes a standard 9V adapter (Boss PSA style), but the PP2's outputs are rated at 80mA apiece, while the RC-20 requires 120 mA according to Boss... hmmm... doesn't seem like it would work, and there's no mention on Voodoo's site about being able to modify the PP2's Line 6 jacks to increase their current, only their voltage... may be worth a call to Voodoo Lab. They're pretty helpful on the phone.

    Alternatively, I do use a Godlyke adapter with the RC-20XL with no problem.
