Daisy power from a Dunlop brick

A question for you pedal experts...

I've got a Dunlop DC10 power brick and want to power seven 9v pedals from it. Sadly, I've lost the cables and need to order.

Should I buy seven separate cables, or can a single daisy chain lead work from just one of its outputs?

Should be OK provided your total load doesn't exceed 375 Ma. The individual outputs are not isolated, so you effectively have a daisy-chain of 9V ouputs inside the box anyway. The 18v outputs provide 625 Ma between them and there's no transformer in that part of the circult - the 18V outputs come straight off the 18v wall wart that powers the unit.

I have one of these and I have a daisy chain somewhere so can do an experiment if you can wait until this evening for the results.

Well it works for 2 or 3 pedals, and I don't think you'll blow anything up - if there isn't enough current it just means some pedals won't work properly.

I don't think the circuitry in these bricks does a great deal, and you might get a very similar result by using a 9V wall wart and a daisy chain.
