    An innovation in powering pedals.

    The SANYO KBC-9V3U Pedal Juice is equipped with a high-capacity SANYO eneloop rechargeable lithium-ion battery technology which provides stable, long-lasting 9V power for music effects devices. SANYO is recognized as the leading manufacturer of Li-Ion batteries in the world today. SANYO battery products are used for many commercial/industrial applications today ranging from automotive, power tools, portable computers and telecommunications. Pedal Juice is built upon this legacy of industry leadership.

    Up to 50 Hours of Continuous, Quiet, Clean, Stable Power – from the First Note to the Last
    Stage and studio recording musicians often need to replace the 9V batteries well before they have been exhausted, in order to prevent any disruption during a musical performance. This only results in users having to purchase, and then discard costly, single-use, alkaline batteries. The sound quality also deteriorates when the battery voltage falls below the proper operating range of an effects box. Now, the SANYO Pedal JuiceTM, KBC-9V3U provides users with up to 50 hours of continuous, quiet, clean, stable power, even as the battery drains. It can be fully recharged in only 3.5 hours using the included AC adaptor.

    Eliminates AC Ground Loops - So Your Tone Comes Through Loud and Clear
    Many effects boxes, graphic equalizers, portable amps, and recorder products operate using a 9-volt DC power source. AC adapters and 9V dry-cell batteries are the typical sources used to power these types of devices. There are a number of reasons why 9V dry-cell batteries and AC power are not preferred methods for powering musical electronic products. First, musicians must set up their gear near to AC electrical outlets. AC power may inadvertently add electrical noise interference (i.e., AC ground loops, spurious noise, hum, etc.) into be desired signal path. With a 500mA load, a typical AC adapter introduces much more ripple noise into the signal path as compared to the clean power produced by Pedal Juice.

    Two 9V DC outputs - Power Multiple Devices; Pedals, Multi-Effect Units, and Portable Recorders
    The KBC-9V3U is equipped with a high-capacity rechargeable lithium-ion battery, providing a stable and long-lasting 9V power source for analog and digital effects units and other electronic music gear. The unit includes two separate DC outputs on the back with cables supplied for easy connectivity.

    Rechargeable Many Times – Save Money and the Environment
    Compared to conventional 9V batteries which lose voltage quickly and must be discarded, Pedal Juice maintains its power level over long periods of time and can be recharged hundreds of times. The KBC-9V3U is built to withstand the most demanding power applications for stage and studio performances. Pedal Juice can power a 10mA effects pedal for up to 50 hours, or a 100mA pedal board for up to 27 hours. With a 500mA current draw (more typical in large multi-effects applications, or in powering synthesizers and multi-track recorders), Pedal Juice can provide steady 9V DC power for almost five hours compared a 9V battery which will operate for about 30 minutes time.

    Power Status LED Indicator
    A three-stage power indicator makes it easy to see the remaining battery power level. The LED light changes color in three stages from green (over 60% power remaining), to orange (30% to 60% remaining), to red (less than 30%). This enables musicians to see the battery level, at a glance, during their performances.

    Convenient One-Button ON/OFF Power Switch for All Effects
    TThe KBC-9V3U includes an ON/OFF power switch which allows the user to easily to turn the power of all connected music effects devices ON or OFF at once. This is a convenient feature since many effects devices do not include their ON/OFF power switch and must be manually unplugged from AC power.

    Water and Shock Resistant - JIS IPX3 Compliant Water Resistant Enclosure
    The portable, rugged, and road-worthy design of the SANYO Pedal Juice will meet the challenge of the most demanding band gig and touring environments. Pedal Juice has achieved a JIS IPX3 water resistant compliance level rating. IPX3 is a Japanese testing standard for water resistance which states that no damage will occur when water is sprayed at a vertical angle of up to 60 degrees from both sides. The durability of Pedal Juice will ease the mind of the working musician who performs in nightclubs and outdoor settings.

        We at shredknowledge.com gave two of these bad boys away and I kept one cuz I loved it man it powers everything from my bossbr800 and korg micro keyboard to my rc20xl loopstation and of coarse all other pedals TONEGuitarists in particular are notorious tone-chasers and as there are no AC Ground Loops in use, you don?t ever have to suffer from that annoying line frequency hum. Not only that but unlike other batteries which can in fact suck your tone especially when nearly discharged, the Lithium Ion battery ensures that your tone is intact and fully realised right to the end of the charge.STABLE POWER DELIVERYLithium-Ion batteries provide a significantly different discharge profile than the Nickel Cadmium batteries many are familiar with. In simple terms that means that unlike the voltage ?drop-off? you experience with other types of battery the Pedal Juice will continue to deliver a full 9v of power until fully discharged. In addition to that notable advantage there is no ?Memory Effect? as with other batteries ? Discharging to a relatively constant level (for example regularly powering two pedals for the length of a 2 hour set before recharging) over a prolonged period can cause other battery types to ?remember? that level of use and over time lose capacity whereas the Pedal Juice won?t fall prey to that particular failing.LONGEVEITY AND PORTABILITYThe Pedal Juice will provide up to 50 hours of continuous use depending on application ? see the table above. Not only does it provide a longer functional life between recharges but even under extreme current draw it can provide handy emergency power for those situations where the unexpected occurs. Add to that the extreme portability and it also answers the needs of those musicians who need to provide power in situations that may not have the benefit of mains power ? for example outdoor performances or busking in which case the Pedal Juice is also water and shock resistant.EASE OF USEAlthough I did have to purchase a US to UK plug adapater this device doesn?t require a step-down transformer so for a meagre 2 outlay you?re instantly ready to charge up ready for use. The front of the Pedal Juice has a highly visible three stage LED indicator (Green, Orange and Red) as a power level indicator and two 9v DC outlets to allow you to hook up almost any device you can conceive of and a simple on/off switch which controls every device it?s connected to.

        Would not buy it again, simply fails by making your rig noisy. If Sanyo would have been cool about helping I would reconsider but they were a bit rude and said that I was out of warranty with no regard for customer service.

        I gigged it once and only took it to my band jam sessions once per week for a year. So it did not get abused, simply a bad product, TWICE.
        Pretty simple, it's supposed to power your pedals... think of it like a Daisy Chain without having to plug it into an outlet.
        I have had 2 and both failed the same way... since they faile 14 months after I bought them, Sanyo will not replace the unit. It causes A LOT of noise in my chain.

        I repeat, 2, I have them a change with an exchange and now they both have failed... I ran 4 pedals with it and only 2 were on at any given time, so my load was pretty low. Waste of money. Sad, because I love the convinience but the noise is ridiculous.
        If I have to buy one every 14 months it's not worth it, I'd rather buy $150 of 9v Batteries that will last me way more than 14 months.

          Comments about Sanyo Pedal Juice Rechargeable 9v Power for Effects Pedals:

          This thing has been a godsend for me. I have struggled with AC line noise forever... older pedals with an AC adapter invariably had me 60 Hz humming, sometimes unbearably, at every gig. Most bars have poor power and neon lights, creating a worst case environment when you need best case. This thing completely eliminates ALL AC noise. I use it to power, all at once: Crybaby from Hell, Korg Tuner, Seymour Duncan Boost, Redwitch Fuzzgod, Boss Flanger, MXR chorus, and a Memory Toy delay. Power lasts for a full 4 hours everytime, maybe as much as 8 hours before recharge is needed (had it last 2 hours+ on YELLOW when I forgot to charge it fully). All pedals perform perfectly and QUIETLY, and oh yeah - nothing to plug in to the wall at all. I've been using it for about a year now, charge seems to still be long lasting and I have had no issues with it at all.

          First timer using a battery source to power my pedal board and I cannot stress enough how much I ENJOY the idea of not worrying about finding an outlet to run an extension cord from my pedal board to power my pedals... now all I do is hit a button and VOILA she's ready to rock!
          The freedom is wonderful... just one cable to my amp and I'm good to go!
          Pedal juice is a God send... wish I had this 10 years ago!

          An AWESOME little product!!! :^)

            What a brilliant idea...

            By David Absalom

            from Columbus, Ohio

            Comments about Sanyo Pedal Juice Rechargeable 9v Power for Effects Pedals:

            Again, we'll see how well it lasts over the year/years, but so far the product has performed as advertised. Its a real convenience to not have to change batteries nor run power to stage front for gigs.
            Wish i had invented this. For a gigging musician, not having to run power to the front of the stage to power a pedal board is a huge convenience. I run a tuner, 2 blues drivers, a wah, and tremelo off the device. It can get me through 3 gigs before needing a recharge. It also hold is charge extremely well when turned off.
            So far, very solid. I've been using for about 3 months, no noticeable difference yet in battery/charge life. Is in a solid package and works every time.
            Huge value if you're gigging often and want the convenience of not needing to power your board with yet another extension cord.

            Warning NOT Digitech friendly

            By Jimmy Plant

            from California

            Comments about Sanyo Pedal Juice Rechargeable 9v Power for Effects Pedals:

            Wanted something to power my Digitech Jamman and Rp355. The Pedal Juice will not work for these devices, at least not right out of the box. I have tried to get some support to see if there's a "workaround", but I?m still waiting for a response from Sanyo. The worst regret is that I did not buy it from Musician's Friend, which is not like me. Instead I saved a couple of bucks and bought it new from ebay BIG MISTAKE. I hope this helps someone else

            I play super lush soundscapes - a very full sound that needs a ton of gear to make it work right.Which is why I'm so glad I discovered Pedal Juice - it runs everything just like I have brand new 9volts out of the package. It's also really nice to have a very clear indicator of power left - the light on the unit that changes color gives me peace of mine when I play.

            My GF got me one of these for V-day. Had a resturant gig and brought it with me - brought 9volts too just incase. I played 3 forty minutes sets and the Pedal Juice baredly turned yellow. Sound was clean too. It's pretty cool.

            Comments about Sanyo Pedal Juice Rechargeable 9v Power for Effects Pedals:

            I can't believe no one else invented this before. This is great. One charge lasts a couple of long gigs. No noise. Fairly compact, I just wish they added a couple of daisy chains to it to power more pedals. But, I use it on a fuzz, wireless, and reverb and lasts all night. My harmonizer uses a different energy source. No surprise, I guess. But, would make a great small pedal power supply and will set up in moments. This thing is great!

            Just got this - a little Christmas treat for myself.It runs a small amp and the pedals I want in the portable setup I use for busking - no more 9volts!I play for hours on one charge. It's small, light, easy to use. I play out alot, so it'll pay for itself by the time I get the credit card bill.
