MyVolts – PTESTMU Polarity Tester
Hot Tip is a power supply tester – it lights up when you connect a working power supply to it.
Uh-oh. Something's not coming on - but is the plug or the device that's dodgy? It's easy to test a plug with the Hot Tip. Just plug the power supply into the wall, then connect it to the Hot Tip - the LED illuminates if there's power, so you'll know if your plug is good or bad.
The female end of Hot Tip accepts a standard 5.5mm outer diameter / 2.1mm inner diameter barrel tip - it's the commonest size, usedon 98% of effects pedals, synths etc.
If you want to test a power adaptor with a different size output, just add the sizes you want to your cart, and we'll send you the parts to fit.
Not sure what size tip you need? Ask us and we'll advise - myVolts has 12 years in the power game and there's nothing we don't know about power.
You can power a device without removing the Hot Tip from the PSU tip end - the LED draws almost no power, so you can go ahead and plug the tip end of Hot Tip into your device. That's handy for dark environments, like on a stage - or anytime you want to know and be sure there's power available. (The only works for gear that Hot Tip fits into, 5.5mm outer diameter and 2.1mm inner diameter - so if you're not sure, ask us).
Power supplies got mixed up, now you're not sure what polarity which PSU is? Hot Tip contains a bi-colour LED, and lights up BLUE when the connected PSU is polarity centre positive (BLUE C +) and RED when the connected PSU is polarity centre negative (RED C -). It's written on the Hot Tip too, so you don't need to remember it.

Candycords by myVolts: Sweet colours, precise design. Unique family of coloured curly audio cables. Tangle-free, hard-wearing and expertly finished.
myVolts Candycords audio cables were developed in collaboration with musicians in real scenarios to fulfill their needs and solve their problems. We've worked hard to make them the best cables out there.
The Candycords feature high quality gold plated 3.5mm jack connectors as well as 6.35mm in straight or right angle configurations. These have a clean yet robust design.
You can hear a solid 'snap-crunch' when you plug them in, but that is no gimmick, it's the sound of a well made connector fitting well into its slot.
We designed the cables using a special thermoplastic rubber that makes them hardwearing while comfortable to handle. With this, we also solved the problem of tangled cables. Our Candycords are virtually untangleable.
