Just received an email from Musiquip (US distributor of T-Rex) letting me know that T-Rex just made an announcement regarding their Chameleon FuelTank Power Supply, and wanted to pass on the info. The basic jist is that they’re lowering the prices on these units, which is great for us guys/gals that are looking to power pedals!
Here is the Official Press Release:
T-Rex Lowers Price of its FuelTank Chameleon Power Supply
November 2011 – Musiquip, the US distributor of Danish guitar effects pedal manufacturer T-Rex Engineering, announces a reduction in the price of the FuelTank Chameleon power supply. The new suggested retail price of the FuelTank Chameleon is $209 (was $249).
Originally launched in early 2010, the FuelTank Chameleon is the most versatile power supply T-Rex has ever made. With six outputs and four different voltage options, it can power just about any guitar pedal ever produced!
* 6 separate outlets (up to 5 can be used simultaneously)
* Your choice of 9V DC, 12V DC, 18V DC or 12V AC power
* Isolated, 300mA outlets (1,500mA total)
* Switchable 115V / 230V mains
* Thorough selection of connector cables
* Compact, rugged, road-ready design
* Legendary T-Rex quality
I found this great video by TRexEffects that goes into detail about this power supply. I also liked how it explains output voltage and milliamps (mA). This is useful to know when dealing with the amount of power all the pedals require and to see if you’re starving yourself or not:
