Effects pedal MA ratings? please help!

Can anyone please explain to me what MA ratings are on guitar effects.

I have a pedalboard and have different effects pedals on it

Boss tu-2 - morley bad horsie -biyang x- drive - biyang aqua chours -digitech digi delay - behringer noise reducer.

on the back of each effects pedal it either says 200ma -300ma etc

I am looking for a pedal power supply to power all my pedals and have found the Biyang pedal power supply as it is in my price range and offers the following.

Slots 1-2 can power 9V DC effects up to 1000mA or power up to 5 pedals simultaniously (using the included daisy chain, Max 1000mA).

Slots 3-5 can power 9V DC PSA effects up to 100mA (Suitable for most pedals on the market).

Slots 6-7 are designed for the old Boss ACA effect pedals.

Slots 8-9 provide an AC 6V current for the Biyang OTD100 and other AC 6V pedals.


as all my 9v effects pedal add up too over 1000ma could i not daisy chain them in inputs one and 2? and also it states that Slots 3-5 can power 9V DC PSA effects up to 100mA (Suitable for most pedals on the market). but none of my pedals are under 100ma as most are 200ma and 300ma

Can anyone please help me with this as i am really confused and don't want to buy the Biyang pedal power supply and not be able to power all my pedals together off the same power supply

Thanks!

Re: Effects pedal MA ratings? please help!

the mA are how much power the pedals consume. You want to make sure that there is more than enough mA available from your power supply to power the pedals comfortably, so they operate efficiently. If you are too close to the max mA that the supply gives out you risk introducing noise and the like.

Put enough of you pedals that's still under 1000mA on the first two slots and that should be ok.

You can't overload mA.
Milliamps are taken as needed.
As long as you have enough, everything will work fine.
