    This is a simple question that might be hard to answer.

    I am thinking of moving away from a pedal board but I still want a tuner pedal. I hate using a power supply for one pedal and I don't want to constantly be changing batteries in my tuner. I actually had a boss tuner go dead during a show after I swore up and down the battery was fine.

    So...in your experience which tuner has the best battery life?

    yep, when it's bypassed it is switched off.

    it is also the fastest and most accurate tuner you can get by a pretty wide margin; i won't use anything else.

    A guy in my practice studio has one that I can try. I need something that can also track low A# quickly. I've had trouble tuning on stage before.
