I had to go with the Chameleon because of it's higher 300mA output, as my multieffects board needed 200 mA. Otherwise, if I only had typical pedals with smaller power needs, I probably would have gone with the Junior or maybe the Classic. Regardless, this thing is built like a tank! It's heavy, but very solid and seems quite durable.
One thing I liked about this model over the other T-Rex Fuel Tank models was this this one seems to be the only one that comes with a HUGE assortment of power cables of varying lengths. I like things to be neat and tidy, and that really helps. I'm very happy with my purchase.
My biggest gripe is that you cannot use all six jacks. You will note that the last two jacks, numbers five and six, have red paint around them. This is to denote that you cannot use them in tandem, only one or the other. The reason is that jack #6 can be used to power a 18v pedal.
According to the manual, using both jacks will result in "some noise". Since "some noise" in my experience means a pedal is about to die, I am not going to try using both jacks, but I wish that I could.
There's a lot of options for pedal power supplies, and this one is worth considering. Do your homework to figure out which will work best for your situation.
Basically, it runs hot. I get that it's a high powered electronic thing, and that means it is going to make heat, but I am honestly afraid to leave it plugged in when I am not in the room. This could have been easily fixed by adding a power switch, but there is none. It's not a huge deal, it just means I have to unplug it each time I am done playing. It only lost a star for this because it seems like a fairly obvious, easy to remedy oversight.If you are looking for an affordable (cheaper than voodoo labs, right?) compact, functional, well-built power supply, this is the one. Just be aware of the heat issue.
The unit is built like a tank and has an excellent paint coating on the outside that can definitely take some hits!
Mine came with a separate 2-prong plug as opposed to the permanently attached plug in the photo. It's a standard 2 prong cord as found on a lot of battery chargers and cable boxes. I was able to find a 15' cord to run to the board w/out needing an extension cord.
The 300ma outputs on the T-Rex were perfect, and there are even switchable 12v, 18v and AC outputs as well. Took less than 5-minutes to set it up to test it, and only a few more to secure the unit and get it road ready.
Read the specs. If they match your needs, this is a clean, powerful untit with plenty of cables, including easy-to-see AC and high voltage cables, and a daisy chain cable for your low draw pedals.
