Hello and thank you for your question.

The FS-5U footswitch does not take batteries. It is a simple switch. Any voltages involved are sent down the cable from the device it is connected to.

If you are having some trouble using the pedal with some specific device, please let me knew the details and I'll try to help you find the cause.
