Almost always, yes.

I can't think of any pedals that switch out the battery with the on/off stomp.
#4
I THINK (and someone may be able to correct me if I'm wrong) that if you have a true bypass pedal that has a battery inserted, and is ALSO plugged into power, off means off, and your battery won't drain.

I think my OCD does that at least.

But that information is probably not very useful anyway, because if you were plugged into power, you wouldn't care about your battery life.

DON'T MAKE ME DESTROY YOU!

that's correct. the act of inserting a power jack breaks the connection with the battery.

there's only one pedal i know. turbo tuner.

That's funny, I've had a turbo tuner on my board for years and never knew that. Good to know!

interesting, I did not know that. the jack breaks the connection to the battery, so if it is on the board I may as well have a battery in it. And nothing would go bad. What if there is no power going through that connection at that time, do burn batteries get eliminated?

On the contrary. That information becomes very useful once you realize you can just put in a 9v dummy plug to take the battery out of the circuit.

It's easy to test, too. Just switch the pedal on in battery mode, so that the LED is on. If the LED goes out once you put in the dummy plug, all should be well.

I like that, easier than my plan to install a battery switch.

FWIW, the reason this came up is that I've just discovered that my Sansamp British makes a terrific headphone amp, and it will be more useful with a battery than with a wall wart.

I agree. But I'd be afraid of a battery leaking after a while.
#11
Yes, make sure you turn it off and unplug all cables from the stomp when you are not using it. I gave up on using batteries in my Boss TU-3 and now use the power cord.

If there's a plug in the jack, it disconnects the battery. Doesn't have to be powered. Makes for a nice easy backup in case your power supply goes out or a power cable shorts.

that was what i was looking for in black and white if you know what i mean. i do realize that it wouldn't necessarily have to be on.

sweet.
