So i have 3 pedals now, A GE7, a NS2 and a cry baby wah

The problem is, the GE7 had flat batterys after a day because i left the input plugged in, just turned off via the pedal sorta thing

I was wondering...

Do i have to unplug EVERYTHING to stop the batteries going flat? with my cry baby all i had to do was inplug the guitar and have it off and the batterys stayed fine for weeks

Can i just unplug the input going into the amp + the guitar and it might be fine? It's pretty annoying to have to unplug everything and plug it back in several times a day when i go to play,

I'd use PSUs but i have no spare points near my amp or anything

The switch to kill the battery is normally attached to the input plug of the pedal - that's the one you have to unplug. Unplugging it at the amp end will do nothing to save your battery.

Yep, most pedals are tuned on by inserting a jack into the input. When you take the jack out, the pedal is turned off again. So yeah, if you are running your pedals with batteries, you need to unplug the jack from the input every time you stop playing on every pedal to stop the batteries going flat.

Using DC power instead of batteries eliminates this problem.

ah ok, what i might do is just slightly unplug the input jacks of both pedals and then just slide them in when i start playing then.

Yeah, just make sure that they're unconnected and you'll be fine.
