The Fuel Tank Chameleon has 6 isolated outputs supplying 1500mA of power in total. Each of the first 3 outputs can be set to either 9V DC or 12V DC. Output 4 can be set to either 9V DC or 18V DC. Outputs 5 and 6 offer 9V DC/12V DC and 12V AC respectively, but only one of these two outputs can be used at a time. In all that's 5 simultaneous outputs, each supporting one or more pedals. All 9V and 12V outlets deliver 300mA each. When outlet 4 is switched to 18V DC it delivers 150mA. All outlets are center negative and will power all T-Rex pedals as well as numerous other brands, including Boss and Line6.

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!
I use just one of these green bricks to power all 9 headphone amps on the stage of our church- from one outlet!?
So many wonderful applications. Funny this is that this was designed for guitar pedal freaks.
