Digitech X-Series boxes and Battery Life?

    I've recently acquired a Digitech Bass Squeeze compressor box and while I like what it does for my tone, battery life is only about an hour or so.
    That doesn't seem right.

    I contacted Digitech and their response was predictably: "The X-Series pedals do consume batteries at a fast pace. We suggest the PS200R power supply, available at www.digitech.com on the Outlet Store."

    Hmmmm. What about your experience with these pedals?

    Thanks.

    Yeah, my Bass Synth Wah eats batteries like no other pedal. I use a power supply with it.
