Pedal Power 2 plus - digitech SDRUM

Sorry I did read up similar sounding threads. I want to power the SDRUM which says 9V @ 500mA.

Since the high current 9V outputs on #5-6 are 250 mA, I am thinking there is no elegant solution. Coupling the two outputs would give 18V @ 500mA. And I don’t want to fry it.

Should I just return the SDRUM? If I can’t use it in my small Gator board it’s a deal breaker. The included switching power supply won’t fit in the AC socket as mounted.

Indeed, coupling 5 and 6 with a Voltage Doubler adapter would create 18VDC. So... yes, don't do that.

But, using a Current Doubler will work:

To power the SDRUM use a Current Doubler Adapter, part# PPAP in Pedal Power 2 Plus outputs 5 and 6, DIP switches set normal and one of the all black (standard polarity) cables supplied.

Cheers!
