Almost too good to be true
The Harley Benton PowerPlant Junior is everything it should be and more, it silently powers my 8 pedals without a sound. Isolated outputs were something I desperately needed due to a noisy Boss DS1, and this baby duly delivers. My DS1 based troubles are now well and truly behind me thanks to the Harley Benton PowerPlant Junior.
Another notable plus point is it's footprint, it's tiny for what it is. I only have a small (but well rammed) pedal board so size was another important consideration. Which yet again the PowerPlant delivered upon.
When compared to competitor products of a similar price I don't think you can put anything above the PowerPlant. It really is a steal for the price, there's nothing out there of a similar quality at this price point. I genuinely can't recommend this product enough. If I lost this I'd definitely buy a replacement without a second thought.
Stop considering it, get it bought!
Excellent power supply
The five 9V DC ouputs are all tip negative, as most pedals require, and are ideal for powering a reasonable sized selection of pedals. Each output is isolated from each other, so this stops ground loops forming, which usually result in obnoxious hum.
A good selection of power cables are provided. There are two sets of standard DC cables (5 short and 5 long), terminated with barrel connectors (right angle at one end and straight at the other). Having both lengths make for neater wiring on a pedal board, without excess cable needing to be coiled up. A "Y" cable is supplied, for powering pedals that need more than 120mA of current. Lastly, a daisy chain cable is included so you can power more than 5 pedals. Some pedals suffer less with ground loops, and the daisy chain will work for those.
In use, my pedals are super clean and quiet with the PowerPlant Junior. It's a huge improvement over batteries, a daisy chain cable, or using multiple power supplies. 120mA per output seems fine for my pedals. It might struggle on some power hungry pedals but the current doubler cable is there for those situations. The standard 120mA output powered a digital delay of mine with no problems.
In conclusion, this is a great product at a bargain price. I should have bought one of these ages ago.
Great for the price!

My only problem with it is that the power cable is built in, so it takes a bit more space (which isn't that much anyway, so no biggie). This is perfect for a small and compect pedal board, though check your pedals' power specs, cause digital effects may require more juice than this can provide (maybe this is solvable with the Y cable, but that takes up 2 slots).
All in all, this is great value for the money. I'm curious to see how long it'll last.
Small and silent

Do yourself a favour and get one of these even if you only run a pedal or two. You will notice a difference.
