    I have a BBE Supa Charger power supply. Outlets 1-4 and 7-8 put out 100mA. Outlets 5 and 6 only put out 200mA but the Strymon Flint requires 250 mA.

    Is it safe to power the Strymon pedal (250mA) by using a Y-cable to combine outlet 5 (200mA) with outlet 4 (100mA)? From what I've researched, I think this is possible with a current doubler cable such as this:

    http://www.voodoolab.com/shop/index.php?cPath=22_24_33

    It seems more logical or "symmetrical" to combine outlets 5 and 6 since they have the same output, but I'd like to keep my Boss DD-20 (200mA) on one of those outlets. And I'd really like to avoid buying a new power supply!

    Can anyone confirm that this would be okay to do?

    Yes that's what they are for. Y-cable (parallel): add up the mA. Just use 100 + 200 (voltage for both outputs set to 9). Have you tried just using the 200 output? Might work, worth trying. You won't ruin it.
    Series cable: add up the volts.

    I use one of those adapters, plus another to reverse the cable to center-positive, to power an Eventide H9 from a SupaCharger. Works great.
