Im just wondering whether they can be powered with alternative AC adapters? I know in the manual it says "Only use the boss adapter" but for all I know that could be bullshit and their way of forcing extra business to stop people using their own 9v adapters

So if anyone knows id appreciate it
yeah, you dont have to use the BOSS adapter. as long as its a 9v adapter that fits you can use it
Just make sure its 9V.

My buddy got sold an adapter and was told it would work. He plugged it in and the pedal literally exploded.
08' Gibson Les Paul Studio
Peavey Valveking 112 w/ Vintage 30
Peavy Vypyr 15 watt
MXR 10 Band EQ
MXR EVH Phase 90
Boss DS-1
Dunlop 535Q Wah

Death to all butt metal.
Cheers. I didnt want to pay that ridiculous £25 asking price for a bloody BOSS branded power adapter when I could get a normal 9v one for a 1/3 of that price
You can get a normal 9VDC one, but I think the Boss is regulated so it'd be better than your bog standard daisy chain dealio.
