Disaster Area Designs DVC-18 Micro Voltage Converter


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 will 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.


Compact size:  2″ x 2″ x 0.83″ and small enough to fit under a Pedaltrain Nano or Mini board

100mA maximum output

12v maximum input (the DVC-18 will output 24V from a 12V input)

2.1mm x 5.5mm DC barrel jack input and output
