A Better Way to Feed Your Battery-powered Pedals

If you use vintage battery-powered pedals, you're familiar with two things: their responsiveness and how quickly the batteries run out. That said, players don't like taking their boards apart to change batteries all the time. With the Vertex Effects Battery Power Supply, it's possible to use your batteries without all of the related hassle. Load the power supply with four 9V batteries, connect to the power inlet, and get rocking! This power supply is intended for use with vintage overdrives, distortions, fuzzes, and wah pedals. But that doesn't mean you can't use select modern pedals. With this power supply on your board, you won't have to tear your pedalboard apart each time a battery dies. Instead, you can spend more time doing what you love — playing through your effects. Read on to see if the Vertex Effects Battery Power Supply is right for you.

How does it work?

On the surface, the Vertex Effects Battery Power Supply may seem like a super-simple device. However, there's a very brilliant thought behind the design and serious processing power under the hood. The Vertex Effects Battery Power Supply system takes advantage of the nature of carbon batteries. Usually labeled as "Heavy Duty" or "Super Heavy Duty" at dollar stores, carbon batteries can't feed huge amounts of current to a pedal. So, when your overdrive needs to draw a lot of power, the battery experiences a drop in voltage and a restriction in current that's very similar to how rectifier tubes or power transformers react with a burst of signal sending them into clipping. While alkaline and lithium-ion batteries can work with this power supply, and we recommend that you use carbon batteries.

How fast will I run through batteries?

Don't worry: you won't burn through batteries with the Vertex Effects Battery Power Supply. Vertex thought of that, too. All you need to do is connect an outlet from your power supply to the input of the Vertex Battery Power supply. This will power the built-in Active Current Sensing technology that automatically shuts off the battery outputs when it notices that the rest of your pedalboard is turned off and unplugged from the AC adapter. While you can use it in standalone mode, we recommend that you use it in conjunction with another pedalboard power supply.

How do I know it's for me?

The Vertex Effects Battery Power Supply is intended for vintage pedals and boutique re-creations modeled after them. However, there are certain modern pedals that can benefit from using this system! Verifying if your pedal could benefit from 9V battery power is easy. Simply connect it to a standard power supply and turn the effect on. Next, unplug the power cable from the effect and watch how quickly the LED light turns off. If the pedal turns off immediately, it's a good match for the Vertex Effects Battery Power Supply. If your pedal turns off slowly, you can still use it with the Battery Power Supply, but it will have the same "sag" in performance.

 

 

Fast delivery and great product. Meanwhile my second Battery-Box, which has become indispensable for me. Overdrives and distortions sound better with batteries.

Just what the Doctor ordered! The Vertex Effects Battery Power Supply is the ideal/perfect solution for those pesky little pedals that just insist on good'ole 9 Volt DC Battery Juice in order to sound right! Very well made, solid little box that is so simple to operate....I have been dreaming about such a device as this! Now go out and getcha one, or do like I did and order one direct from Vertex Effects Inc.

If you can hear the difference and insist on using batteries in some of your pedals, this is a no-brainer.

I first saw this on a video detailing Josh Smith’s pedalboard. At the time, I was assembling a new board, and hated running my fuzz pedals off of my power brick- but didn’t want the hassle of unplugging cables to save battery life. Not only did this come along at the perfect time, but it works beautifully! I get the sound of battery power, without any of the hassles- outstanding!!!!!! I highly recommend this to anyone that loves the quality batteries add to Fuzz / dirt pedals, but are sick of worrying about unplugging the cables etc. so they can keep as much battery life as possible! Thank you Vertex- this is a home run!!!!

The Vertex battery power supply is a great improvement in tone for powering my Overdrive Fuzz Octavia and yes even my Wah. I’m really pleased with the results. And it also opened up some spots on my other power supply! A great way to improve your tone for not very much dough! Barry Allen

The battery power supply is fantastic. I love the way it warms my overdrives on my pedalboard. It's such an easy way to coax that much more tone out of a rig. Very happy customer, thank you all agian.

The Vertex Battery Box is an absolute tone saver for certain effects on my pedalboards, and the convenience of not harvesting batteries from the individual pedals is a huge plus! If you love the sound of certain pedals being powered by batteries, this addition to your pedalboard is a must. Thanks Guys! JP
