Sanyo Pedal Juice Keeps Your Guitar Pedals Alive

So, you're a rock star? Wanna be famous? All that good stuff? Well, if you're a guitar player, you'll need the right tools, and Sanyo has a new tool to consider on stage. The KBC-9V3U Pedal Juice (a member of the Eneloop series, it seems) kills a problem that guitarists have had for years now: batteries. 9V batteries in particular. This device eliminates the need for carrying those around.

It's a 9V Lithium–Ion rechargeable battery power pack that can provide up to 50 hours of power to a guitar effects pedal, and unless you're playing all night, the Pedal Juice also eliminates the need for power cables which can produce “ground sound” and drastically reduce tone.

Just in case you missed that: 50 hours! That's a lifetime in guitar years! There are two 9V DC outputs to power multiple pedals, and a 3-stage LED light to show power level. There's a single on/off button (no need to unplug your pedals) and it can be recharged "hundreds" of times. Even more, it's water and shock resistant and fully recharges in just 3.5 hours. It's also the same footprint as standard effects pedal (2.5” W x 4.7”D x 1.7”H), so it fits easily into a pedal case. Total cost? $149.99, but that's a bargain if you gig nightly.
