The rechargeable Lithium-Ion battery will be available from Sam Ash Music Stores, Musician''s Friend, and Guitar Center at the end of June.

Chatsworth, CA (June 30, 2010) -- SANYO North America Corporation introduces a new way for musicians to power their effects pedals, multi-effect devices, and mobile recorders. SANYO Pedal Juice, a 9V DC Rechargeable Lithium-Ion Battery device, will be available from leading national music retailers and distributors throughout the U.S. with a list price of $199.99.





One Pedal Juice battery can provide up to 50 hours of continuous, stable power for a single analog pedal or up to 20 hours of continuous power to three digital pedals. Because the eneloop 9V rechargeable lithium-ion battery eliminates the need for AC power, the output voltage is more stable for longer periods of time without the possibility of AC ground looping noise. The battery can be recharged hundreds of times, thereby eliminating the waste and inconvenience of disposable 9V alkaline batteries. With two DC outputs, Pedal Juice can power multiple devices including pedals, multi-effect units, and portable recorders. Pedal Juice provides portable battery power to a single pedal or can be used to power several pedals at the same time.

SANYO Pedal Juice was developed using feedback from musicians about what they need in portable power devices. Musicians can conveniently power Pedal Juice and connected devices with a flip of the on-off switch. In addition, a 3-stage visible LED power indicator displays the remaining power level with green, orange, and red LED lights for musicians to see at a glance. Pedal Juice is also water and shock resistant to JIS IPX3 compliance level.
