I am confused as hell on what power supply i need.

Okay, my basic setup is a strat that goes through a mxr flange> delay> POG> Morley Wah> EHX holy Stain>Boss RC20> amp

I used to have a ton of danelectro cool cat pedals as well that were between the holy stain and BOSS, about 5 of them, and while they are good pedals they do very little for my tone. In fact, as i mature as a player i am finding that the only pedals i find myself using are the EHX, mostly for reverb or OD&fuzz just to keep the noise level low when bedroom strumming, my morley wah (which i may replace,) and i use my boss rc20 a ton.
The pog, flange, delay, and all the cool cats are nice but they are merely there for experimentation and when i am bored.

Anyways, i have been playing on the go alot lately, and i am tired of buying 9v's for the wah and ehx, i use rechargable AA's in the boss, i need a power supply that can power these 3 pedals, but i am confused as to which one is right for me, there are so many choices. I am wondering what is a good, affordable, reliable unit that will power these three flawlessly, and give me a tiny bit of room to grow.

I would like the ability to add the flange, delay, and pog on there but it won't be there 100% of the time. Any ideas? I am stumped on power supplies.

I guess I'm not understanding what you're asking for?

1 spot is about the most minimalistic power supply you can get. even wall warts seem clunky by comparison.

Voodoo labs pedal power iso 5, or pedal power 2, or dunlop power brick. The voodoo labs is better, but both work well

I have no idea why your 1spot doesn't work, but a Voodoo Labs Iso 5 should do the trick.

okay after a bit of reading, i understand that what i was looking for doesnt actually exist. I had it in my mind that the power bricks currently on sale are actually portable power, as in they are rechargeable. I now realize they aren't and I would still have to plug in. Thanks for the suggestions everyone, but i think for now the adapter I have works fine. I didnt realize the other adapters need to be plugged in as well.

Yeah.
I went to the Los Angeles Amp show a few years ago and they had that right at the entrance.
Looked pretty cool.
