    I’m looking for something similar to this: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07S68CXJD/?tag=tdpri-20

    I don’t like that it’s not grounded and I’m worried about the durability. I have combined my electric and acoustic rigs so that I have one board that will do any gig. See picture attached, I don’t love the way the supply is mounted to the board either. Anything out there I’m missing? I’ve searched and come up with nothing. Trying to keep my pedalboard with one power cord. I’d like to neaten the cables up as well.

    At that price it’s probably worth taking a chance on. I’ve used a BBE Supa Charger for years with great reliability.

    Do those TC pedals require 12 volts? If not, for the amount of pedals you have, you could use a 1-Spot and daisy chain cables. I believe the 1-spot will handle up to 1,700 mA.

    Why not get a rechargeable PS, and ditch the power cable all together?

    The play acoustic requires 12V, the Nova System has a standard 3 prong power cable. I went with the hyree due to it having the standard outlets as well.

    did you notice the outputs are rated for 100ma and only one 9V out that is 500 ma , not enough draw capability to push a pedal board of any size even the 12V and 18V are 100ma
    great idea ,great design ,not big enough. JMHO

    I have 2 of those. They work fine. You actually don't want it grounded because that's how you get a ground loop.

    Anyway, it's $20.00 bucks. It has an actual 110 plug while other products have a wall wart for power.
    You want something better? It's going to cost you around $100.00 for "better" and isolated ground features.

    I bought one of those low-priced power supplies & had to send it back; way too noisy. I got one of these recently, have done a dozen or so gigs with it & it works great. Powers my Roland GR-30, seven stomp boxes and a TC-H Mic Mechanic. I keep it plugged in while I'm gigging.

    This one is cool and useful because of the outlets. I currently use a One Spot, which is fine, but how bad could one this be?

    Me, too, on my big board. Always does the job and I never, ever have to think about it. Solid!

    Got a Volto 3 for Christmas, for my little board. Haven't used it much but it's quiet and holds the charge a long time. Good choice.

    I use a Tech 21 Fly Rig 5 ver1. It has tap-tempo delay, chorus/modulation, reverb, three-knob EQ, clean/drive, overdrive, and boost. All effects sound really good.

    These run on 12vDC, so I built a small board from 1/4" Lexan, installed some stick-on rubber feet on the bottom, steel cabinet handles to protect the plugs in the jacks, and added a 12v rechargeable li-ion power pack (Talentcell brand, less that $30 on Amazon) designed for remote camera applications. The power pack runs the Fly Rig for more than 40 hours between charges, and it has a 'fuel gauge' on it to show charge status.

    I also added a plastic ring over the SansAmp switch because it stays on all the time (prevents me from tapping it off), and I added a half-round aluminum bar across the top to protect the small knobs from getting stomped on. This thing is bulletproof, and I carry it in a small padded laptop bag with the wall-wart charger and spare cables.

    All it needs is a cable running to the guitar, and a cable running to the amp.
