Why don't you just get a poewrbar, they have switches on them, that's what I use for my pedals.

Don't some pedals drain batteries unless they're unplugged?

but yeah, most pedals kill their batteries if you leave them plugged in. except for true bypass. because the pedal has to use electricity to carry the signal through its circuit board even if it isn't modifying it.

use common sence and don't leave a bunch of cables tangled with some paper lying ontop of and near the flamable liquids and you should be fine

DERP, some pedals are probably battery powered because of inconsistent power outputs from outlets, and if not, it was never explicitly stated that all of his pedals rely solely on a power strip.

Batteries don't give power?

Oh, my bad, I forgot that batteries deliver mana, not power. Silly me.

Dude, your question has been answered, it will be fine, provided you have an adapter. If not, the pedals will suck all the battery power out (unless they are true bypass as mentioned). The only thing is letting the adapter overheat, but that won't happen for at least a week straight (this is also not mentioning contributing heavily to the electricity bill). I would suggest getting a power strip with an independent switch, which I have, simply because it's a lazy man's dream, and with an effects board like mine, I have to make it ergonomic as possible.

This is not as bad as you make it sound.

If that were true, then my amp volume and drive would be inconsistent resulting in my accents being lost since the volume fluctuates.
