    I want to bybass buying $20 boss transformers for my pedals. Somehow I ended up short a few and am feeling like using all my stuff again.

    The mutilple/adjustable transformers I've come across on the market are higher mA than the ones that came with my pedals. 500mA is the lowest I've found. Are there any problems with using a 500mA for something that requires 100-300?

    No. The pedal will only draw the current that it requires. A OneSpot is capable of giving around 1100mA of current, however, mine's currently plugged into only one pedal with no problems, and shall never cause problems.
