The DVC-18 is a micro-sized voltage converter unit.

We offer this unit in three versions:

DVC-18: Doubles the input voltage (9 to 18, 12 to 24, 15 to 30 max)

DVC-12: Converts 9V input to 12V output

DVC-15: Converts 9V input to 15V output

The DVC-18 is a micro-sized voltage converter unit. Simply plug a 9V power source into the input, and the DVC-18 will output up to 100mA of clean 18V power. Many pedals are compatible with an 18V power supply, in some cases the higher voltage results in greater headroom or more total volume output.

Consult with the manufacturer for each pedal you wish to power with the DVC-18, Disaster Area Designs may not be held liable for any damage that may result from an overvoltage condition.

The DVC-18 normally doubles the input voltage. A 9V input will result in an 18V output, while a 12V input will produce a 24V output. The DVC-18 is also available with a lower-voltage regulated output (12V or 15V versions.) DVC-12 and DVC-15 versions should be run on a 9V input only.
