So I have a Digitech Hardwire DL-8 and after the stock battery died, I replaced it with a new battery. But for some strange reason, it seems to die after about 10 or 15 minutes of plug in time. This never occured with my Boss DS-1 pedal in which the battery would last me a good 3-4 weeks and I use it much more than the delay. What's also weird is that if I wait about an hour or so and plug my delay pedal back in, the LED light shines bright, indicating that it is still on full power, but then dies as mentioned.

Can anybody explain to me why this happens? Oh and I do plan to buy the One Spot adapter to remedy this, but I would just like to know why this is happening.

Delays eat batterys. It's a fact. An adaptor is your best bet.

It's an eveready battery that I bought at the 99 cent store. I'm not sure about the kind of 9V it is. It just says 9V.
