Pedal Power Consumption List in milliamps mA

Recommended Posts

I figured I didn't see one so heres a small list I started.
This will help you get most out of the isolated outputs of a Voodoo Lab PP2+ and even a one spot which is 1700 mA.
I'll edit as I find / test more, but any help would be appreciated regarding your more current flavor of the month pedals.

A few things:

Most analog pedals, wah pedals, fuzzes dirts and OD are very low mA. Around 1 to 10.
Digital pedals like delays reverbs loopers will be highest. Some even vary from 80mA to 300mA (Digitech synth wah). Not sure how that works.

Also, some pedals are marked 12V which means it can be run at 12V, but not necessary.
Regarding Boss pedals, you can find much more info from Bossarea.com. The now retired cry.gif BossArea forums is there if you need more technical info with BOSS pedals.

You can also measure any pedal that takes a battery with a multimeter.

I would bet a frothy blackberry milkshake that we will see a stupidly large increase in mA-used in the next few years.
Kinda like the wasteful code we see in ANY recent product...nothing is optimised nowadays.
Anyway, when SharcChip3.0 comes out, expect a bunch of hacks to jump onboard and starrt doing their MegaHalls and PlatesFromMemphisis all on some underworked but overcoded DSP that's burning up electrons like they were M&Ms.

....whew...

So yeah, be happy you're only torching a few mA for that 'verb....It'll be a bit moer dear in the future.

The DL4 and the other L6 4 switch boxes like the DL4 run between 140-180mA. Also, Andreas (Stinkfoot) his website has a Power list of many pedals and their mA. Nice list Steve, I do the same w/ the pedals I've used in the past and currently as well.

Thanks Jerry! I have a lot of research to do for this, but I do hope to get some help with any links that people might know about. smile.gif
And the list at the stinkfoot site is good but I find it to be neglected/lacking. And I can understand why really. It can be tricky finding out the max mA that some pedals push.

Yeah thats a great point all around. I'm not looking fwd to it, honestly.
But you know, theres always the tried and true that get passed around.
Reverbs definitely push the high milliamps though. It's always been that way.
Trying to find the Malekko Chicklet now. That can't be too high right?

Noted! Thanks for the contribution.
If you have a list or a good source. Share it.
It seems that many fuzzes, wah, envelope filters, octavers, drives, distortions, bit chushers, and most other analog pedals use low power (mA). Probably under 15.
It's the digital pedals that eat up the power.
