I already have the T Rex fuel Tank classic connected to my board. All my pedals right now are running in total of about 430 ma at 9v ports.

Do you think taking the chamelon will be a better idea over the classic?

Please note that only Fuel tank psu are available in my country .

My board, pretty much:

I've since also added a TC Flashback delay. One outlet runs at 12V and one at 18V + two 9V 5-way daisy chains (not all plugs used) and one dedicated 9V for the high-current digital Flashback. No issues! Apart from the delays and the chorus I basically have only overdrives and fuzzes though and they are all modest and low current.

From the T-rex page on the Chameleon:
- 5 outputs each with 300 mA ( = 1500 mA)
- Output 5/6 choice of either 9/12v DC or 12v AC
- Choice of 9V DC, 12V DC, 18V DC or 12V AC power. Note - 18V delivers 150mA

That 300mA per outlet is pretty much unique - very few PSUs come even close to that. I love mine, it just delivers!

Edit: I saw that the Classic can deliver a total of 500mA so you're probably already stressing it a bit now.

agree with what kboman said.

I have a fuel tank chameleon and it works wonders to my board, I use to have a dd20, a nova modulator and 8 more stomp boxes and works fine. I just made sure i didn't overload it and followed the 300amp per input thing.

Now with the pedals you have, it'll definitely work with the correct math and a few purchase of daisy chain cables. Also some of the pedals you mentioned have small amp ratings in which is recommended to daisy chain, say 5 per slot... you can figure it out. cheers!

AH yes I have changed it to the chameleon ,and my Pedals sound drastically better!

Surely the classic was overloaded by the memory boy and Holy grail.
