    I can't seem to recall any power supplies with isolated outputs that work with different mains voltages in different countries.

    I just find it odd all the Shredfreak and Diago ones work on any mains voltage but the Voodoo Lab one doesn't

    So any suggestions?

    I think only switchmode power supplies are flexible with input voltage. The Voodoo Lab one uses a different technology which is quieter, but you lose that flexibility. Doesn't really answer your question though, all I can suggest is look at the specs for the BBE Supa Charger or Berkely Flatliner.

    Flat Liner is too big and too many options I won't use, didn't know the BBE was isolated.

    Will check now

    The BBE will work as long as they are actually Isolated outputs.

    Looks like it will fit under a PT Jr as well.

    Hmmmmm

    If you guys ever play in upstate NY, you're welcome to crash at my house. I do have smelly dogs, though...

    Good luck with the power supply and let us know what you discover.
     
  10. Roskilde Festival next year!

    On topic - you may have to get one custom made... I've never seen a power supply with those specifications. It's probably going to be big and heavy.

    why not use a 220/240V one and use a power strip adapter at the end? plugging a 220V in a lower voltage wall wart won't hurt it (but not the opposite)

    "Includes eight isolated, regulated and filtered outputs, a toroid transformer for a zero hum performance and a selectable mains input voltage (110-220) that enables the Supa-Charger to be used worldwide."

    This is what I read on one online store's website. So it looks like it could work for you.

    Here is a link to BBE's website which has the same information.

  14. True enough, but if it's not designed to cope with the lower input voltage then it will be as useful as a brick.

    seems like the gigrig generator would fine as well, although they don't specify the dimensions on the website
