Pedals that only have AC cord - How to make portable
 
Can someone tell me what adapter to get in order to use a 9V battery on a pedal that only came with a 9V AC power cord? I have some small pedals that I would like to occasionally use without having to find an electrical outlet.

thanks

I had no idea such a thing existed though I'm not suprised. Also not suprising is you can get 5 for only a little more than the price of the one above (athough not "right angle" style) via Amazon. https://www.amazon.com/5pack-Battery...dp/B01AXIEDX8/

Hmmm, this review of this cable on Amazon has me concerned: "Heads up buying this cable. It is meant to power a Voodoo Labs Power supply ONLY! The polarity on it is negative ring (outer) and center (inner) positive. There is no mention of this on the packaging, Amazon, Voodoo Labs and other websites as of this date. Most 9 volt pedals are wired opposite of this cable with (outer) positive and (inner) negative. You need to know the polarity of your pedal requires or you may fry it. I alerted Voodoo labs about this and they do not make a negative (inner) positive (outer) right-angle direct to battery pedal power cable. They offered me a straight barrel connector to allow me to cut the wire and switch the polarity. Not the function I was hoping for, but a solution. Hence the one star to draw your attention to this potentially misleading product/function."
