    Simple question, can't find answer in owners manual. I always unplug the 1/4'' jacks when done playing but I am curious if it drains the battery if I leave the jacks plugged in.
    Does leaving the 1/4'' plug in on the PBDDI drain the battery. Should I continue to unplug my bass jack?
  2. From the manual ...

    *Operable with phantom power supply, minimum 24V DC regulated, however, 48V DC regulated is
    recommended in order to illuminate LED.
    *Utilizes standard 9V alkaline battery (not included).To install, simply remove door cover. (NOTE:
    The Input activates battery.To conserve energy, unplug when not in use.) Power Consumption:
    approx. 5mA.
    *USE DC POWER SUPPLY ONLY! Failure to do so may damage the
    unit and void warranty. DC Power Supply Specifications:
    -9V DC regulated or unregulated, 100mA minimum;
    -2.1mm female plug, center negative (-).
    Optional factory power supply is available:Tech 21 Model #DC2."
