What are you trying to do? Did you mod it or something? Is it broken?

Manual says 50mA current draw. I would assume the Bpss' ratings would be pretty accurate.

I have a number of devices that I'd like to measure their mA so that I can add them all up and but the appropriate power supply. The Boss was just an example I guess.

Voltage (+) out of power supply needs to pass through the meter (up red or black and out the other) on the way to the pedal.

I'd draw something up, but this is an old ass thread..
