Re: How to measure battery drain on my new pedal design?
Tim!  
You need a DMM (digital multimeter) with a mA range. Almost any cheap one will do. Set the meter range to - say - 100mA, connect just ONE of the battery-clips to the pedal. Now you put the meter-prods between the free battery-pole and the free pole of the pedal-clip, and you're in business!  
If this is unclear, just yell and we'll sort it out!  
Regards Bernt.
