question

I'like to know power requirements.Is it possible 220v?
Asked by: CHONG SOO K.
The GT-1 does not ship with a power supply. It is designed to operate from 4 AA batteries or optional DC power supply. The Boss power supplies available from B&H are 120 VAC only.

question

Could this one be powered by NiMH AA batteries?
Asked by: Alejandro
The instruction manual calls for 4 alkaline AA batteries. The voltage of NiMH batteries is lower than the 1.5 Volt rating of the alkalines. I would think that you would get either a low battery warning, or a shorter run time with the NiMH batteries.
