    i know this can be done on 9 volt pedals, but i have two 18 volt pedals that i would like to daisy chain the power together, something like the one spot does for example, they are an Aguilar tone hammer, and an mxr 10 band eq pedal, is there a way to do it?

    Just get an 18V power supply and a daisy chain power cord, no? Am I missing something here?

    well that is what i have been thinking, and i see that there is stuff that you can buy to do this with 9 volt pedals, but i see nothing you can buy to daisy chain 18 volt pedals, i was wondering if there is a reason for that, maybe one 18 volt pedal takes to much power to daisy chain another with it, i mean i was thinking that i could use the stuff they sell that is labeled for 9 volt and i would probably work, a wire is a wire right? it should not make a difference, i just cant find any daisy chain product that is rated for 18 volt, i was just curious on why?, i dont want to ruin my pedals, i hope this make more sense.

    Daisy chains should handle 18 volts no problem.

    If you want to run 18V pedals off a 9V supply, then you'll need some "Virtual Batteries" by gigrig, i believe. You'll need 2 to run each 18V pedal.

    Also make sure your power supply has enough current to run everything.
