    Does something like this exist?

    I love experimenting with new filters and have even started building my own. Often I want to spend hours with them but with career, girlfriend, lust for outdoors and music production it's hard to focus hours at a time. Well I recently moved to Baton Rouge and now am faced with days of no power and home confinement during hurricanes (like tomorrow now, so too late for Isaac).:help:

    Being a half full dude, I want to use this time to make funky experiments if possible. If I could find a battery powered box that I can plug my battery powered effects into and funk around a bit I could make the time go by much faster.

    Any suggestions on boxes or other methods?


    Edit: using rechargeable 9Vs, keeping it green:D

    Zoom B3 can do all that. Runs on 4 AA batteries.

    Nice, thanks all. The EBS can't run on batteries though can it?

    Why not buy a generator. Then you can take care of important things like bass effects, while also dealing with the unimportant things like food and life safety..........

    Next year when I'm in a house or maybe this year if a cat. 3 comes ill get a generator. If a Cat. 4-5 comes my girlfriend and I will evacuate to Birmingham with friends.

    I moved down here in a rush and got stuck in a second level apartment so it's a bit tough to fit a generator. Believe me we are keeping it very safe with plenty of supplies, water, candles and booze. Not sure I would waste generator power on my Genz 9.0 if I had a Microcube or alike lying around anyways.
