Hello, got my Boss SD-1 last week but didn't read the manual fully and left the jack in which drained the battery. Went in to replace it and noticed it has a Roland 9V battery and I'm worried if replacing it with a regular 9V battery is wrong.

Not sure if I have to get this same battery or if anything is fine, thanks.

It's a battery, just like every other battery-operated device in history. You wouldn't worry about replacing an Energizer with a Duracell, would you?

Yeah, any regular 9 volt is fine, but if you replace an Energizer with a Duracell, the Energizer bunny might just come kick your arse again and again and again and again......

If you keep your jacks in, just get an AC adapter. Solves all your battery problems.

As has been said, any 9V battery will suffice; though not all are going to last the same amount of time, regardless of wether you leave the jack connected or not.

If you have a few pedals, it's worth looking into an adapter to power them, rather than shelling out for 9V batteries (which in my experience, are damned expensive!) on a regular basis. More reliable for gigs, too.
