I'm looking into power supplies for the pedalboard I'm putting together. It seems that the BBE Supa Charger and the Voodoo Lab Power Supply are the two most widely used units. They both have 8 DC outlets with switchable voltages, noiseless transformers, filtering, and fuse protection. They also both bolt directly into the base of Pedaltrain pedalboards. Has anyone had experience with either unit? The BBEs go for about $150 on eBay, though there's an authorized dealer selling them for $108 with free shipping on eBay. The Voodoo Labs go for $140-$170 on eBay. Not the sexiest piece of equipment, to be sure, but definitely worth spending the money for the best available product.

They both have pluses and minuses...The BBE can convert to euro power with the flip of a switch (WHICH IS HUGE FOR ME) and any of the 9 (Ithink) out puts can be switched from 9 volt to 12, which is also great, The Voodoo lab I think has less out puts and either all or a few can switch between 9 and 2 but cannot go from us to euro with a switch, One cool thing about the Voodoo lab pedal is that it has a "Sag" option on two out puts for players/pedals that like that naturally, alternating, varying battery power sound..The BBE does not have that option. Another one of my favorites is the T-Rex which can switch to euro (I think...) and has a 12 V AC! option whic neither the BBE or Voodoo lab have...Thats cool!
Their all good depends on your needs and any one of these is a HUGE step up in tone and convenience from any other sloution!
Have fun you'll dig 'em
