I will be very unprecise, but I would say "not long"! Mine ran out of juice after a few hours playing it. It did contribute to make me buy a Power Supply for my pedals (my Wampler Velvet Fuzz needs quite a lot of juice also).
It is great for taking to jams where the back-line is funky, but it's not always possible to find an outlet. I've been taking mine to jams and didn't check the battery before I took it to the gig.
I was just wondering what other users were experiencing.
I use batteries for backup ONLY and keep them in my gig bag. What I did was purchase a two outlet surge protector, one outlet for my amp and one for my nano pedal board that I use a Cioks Adam with. If there is one outlet at any given venue I'm good to go.
As for the Zdrive or any other pedal having poor battery life I've learned never to rely on batteries. Also, a pedal can't at all be judged by its appetite for batteries. Just my opinion.
I have been using mine as a stand alone pedal around the house. Always unplug the input when not in use. A fresh, new Duracell last me about 2 weeks each. I was surprised it went through the first one so quick.
Not an issue on a powered pedalboard...but..it eats battery's for breakfast, but man does it sound great!
Enough amps, cabs, guitars, too many pedals...and not near enough time!!
Z-Master & Therapy sounding great in the Upstate....South Carolina, USA
I have been daisy chaining it. Not too noisy either!

GuitarZ: So, I cranked up the privacy protection on my browsers, facebook, etc. I have to say I miss the music ads and such. I really don't need ads for watches and other random stuff. Maybe the internet knowing me isn't such a bad thing.

GuitarZ: Reminds me of buying my Honda. When they tried to sell me the maintenance package, I said "Is your car not reliable?" Long story short my wife teamed up with the sales lady to buy the maint package. Never again!
