actually i have seen a box of some sort.. somewhat bigger than a regular AC/DC converter.. but you could attach 8-12 pedals to it.. if only i could find it again..

edit: something like this

You'll only need that thing if you adapter isn't powerfull enough to power all you pedals at once. I most cases a standard 9V adapter is capable of running at least 3-5 pedals at once. Watch out: some pedals, for example delay pedals, require much more power than an overdrive or tuner...

Sry the boss thing is not what youre looking for, I meant something like this:

You plug you adapter in one end and you can power several pedals at once

Just make sure that you know how much power your pedals pull (labeled in amperage - A), so you get and adapter that has greater A value. Also buy adapter that has a big value, so when you upgrade eventually, you can use it then.

Usually 1000mA adapter should do the job fine..But make sure you buy the one that is "stabilized" because if its not good quality one you can get annoying buzzing through pedals because of power supply.
