Simple question: Too many mili-Amps?

    I have the Iso-5 power supply from VooDoo labs. Can I run any pedal 9v/12v through the 9v/12v 300mA output? or only ones that require 300mA, like my Nova-Repeater? I can't seem to find simple answers to my simple questions anywhere. Thanks for the info!

    No. 300mA is the amount of power the output can give. It doesn't strictly output, rather a pedal 'requires the draw'... So If you plug in pedal that needs 150mA it'll only draw 150mA from the output. The supply just states the maximum that it'll give.

    There's no risk of 'over loading' etc.

    Right. Volts are a different issue (don't use a 24V power supply on a 9V pedal) but extra mA won't hurt at all.

    Sweet, thanks for the clarification!
