T Rex Fuel Tank Classic Power SupplyT Rex are based in Denmark and have been established since 1996. They are one of the original "boutique" pedal manufacturers, offering guitar and bass players a superior range of FX pedals. All the pedals are built to last and come with a 2 year warranty. The T Rex range has some of the most toneful overdrive pedals we've ever heard, and the T Rex Replica is one of the best delay pedals on the market - widely used by pro players becasue of the way it accurately replicates a tape echo pedal. T Rex pedals look great, sound better and are reasonably priced. We also really like their range of Tone Trunk pedal boards and whatever pedals you own, we'd recommend these for housing your pedals on.

Here's what T Rex say about the Fuel Tank Classic Power Supply
Running on full
No more batteries to change. No more tangled cables to trip over. FuelTank is the perfect power supply unit for guitarists who want to focus on their performance, not their gear. Delivering 1.500 mA through ten DC plugs, FuelTank powers all your pedals, keeping you running on full power night after night. With a compact design, FuelTank fits conveniently every pedalboard including the T-Rex ToneTrunk effect board. And it comes with all the cables you need to get you up and running. The dimensions of the FuelTank are:L:15,8 cm H:3,8 cm W:7,6 cm
FuelTank delivers 1.500 mA of reliable power. Two of the ten outputs provide 12-volt power with isolated ground, one DC and the other AC, for AC pedals.
MAINS input power plug, 3-pin standard plug
Voltage selector, 115/230 volts
eight 9-volt DC output plugs, all sharing the same ground. Giving a total of 500 mA
one 12-volt DC output with isolated ground, giving 500 mA
one 12-volt AC output with isolated ground, giving 500 mA
Blue LED when unit is ON
Slow burning fuse 250V 250mA
One 5-connector link cable/daisy chain for the DC outputs
Eight black extension cables for the DC outputs, length 25 cm
ten black extension cables for the DC outputs, length 50 cm
two red extension cables for the 12-volt AC output, 25 cm
one standard mains power cable
1. Can the FuelTank run all T-Rex pedals?
ANSWER: No. The Room-Mate and the Squeezer uses more than 500 mA together. So the 12 volt DC output cannot run them both. All other T-Rex pedals can be powered by the FuelTank. Use the 12 volt AC plug for the Replica.
2. Does the FuelTank have isolated outputs?
Answer: The FuelTank consists of 3 isolated blocks - 9V DC, 12V AC & 12V DC. The eight 9V DC outputs all share the same ground, which means that they are not isolated.
3. Is each output short-circuit protected?
4. Can the FuelTank power other pedals than T-Rex pedals?
Answer: Yes, the FuelTank powers all pedals that need 9V DC and 12 V AC or 12V DC. It can NOT power an 18V pedal. As each block of outputs gives a total of 500mA, the FuelTank cannot power pedals which need more than 500 mA.
5. Is it better to use the link cable (daisy chain) instead of the singular cables.
ANSWER: Yes. In some areas, like Greece, there can be noise in the electricity. You can avoid that by using the Daisy chain.
6. Can all T-Rex pedals run on 12 volt DC?
Answer: Yes. Also the Replica. Even the pedals with a 9 volt battery container and the sign "9 volt DC". When you look in their manuals it actually says 9 - 12 volt DC.
7. Are there any products that do not work with the FuelTank?
Answer: Yes, the Mojo Vibe: it uses an internal step-up circuit where 9V is altered to 18V - this causes a horrible noise on the ground. We suggest that the Mojo Vibe gets its own power supply.
We've also discovered that Lehle products need separate outputs (either 12V DC / 12V AC)in order to work with the FuelTank.
For a long time, a lot of people have been asking us to make it easy for them to run their pedals. One pedalboard - one power supply. And we have been struggling with this project very long. We testet a lot of transformers on the market, but none met our demands. We ended up developing a transformer ourselves - together with another danish company. So the FuelTank meets the demands for a modern power supply. No noise, lots of outputs, cables included, multiple mains volts.
