Is there a way to leave the battery in the pedal, while it is plugged into the wall, without the battery being drained at all? I wan't to use batteries at rehearsals, but not a home, there I might aswell leave them plugged in at all times. I basically want to store the battery in the pedal when at home, without using it, so that when I use it anywhere else without an ac adapter. Is this possible?

Why would you leave it pluged in all the time at all? If the power gose out or anything it could break the pedal.

Just unplug the cord from the input on the pedal while not in use at home. Most pedals wont turn on unless theres something plugged in.
Do you use a BR-600?

Yes but once it's plugged in, then will it drain the battery, or will the ac adapter take care of the power? Or can I even leave them plugged into the input at all times without battery being drain (due to the adapter)?

Well I would assume that leaving the adaptor plugged in would ovveride the battery and would not use it but maybe you should try it with one first so you dont kill multiple batterys.

Maybe I'll just put the batteries in each reahersal, it's only once a week. Nobody else though? Would really be nice to know if my original idea would work

get a power brick? just turn the one switch on it when your done' to turn off all your pedals, and turn the one switch back on when you want them all back on

but then as soon as I "turn them all of", the batteries will start to work, won't they?

As said, just unplug the guitar cable going into it. Then no battery is drained. All you have to do is to lean down to the pedal, pull the cord and your done. Takes about 1 second, depending on how fast you can get down/up and pull the cord. No hassle whatsoever.

I am American But I asked my uncle (who has worked as a guitar tech), and he told me the ac adapter would "overrun" the battery no matter what. So I guess my problem is solved.
And you can call me lazy, but you have to agree that plugging and unplugging three pedals maybe 20 times a day is a btch. Plus, now when I go to band practice, all I have to do is bring the three pedals and I'm all set. The batteries will last forever and when they do die, I'll of course have backups ready.

You say lazy, I say practical

okay MAYBE a little bit lazy
