Generally boots seem to outlast trunks, and chips survive longer than fries, reportedly for that reason.

How ‘bout you don’t rack your mic power supplies? How many do you have? I only have three right now, and I store the power supplies as they came, in cases with the mics.
We're both in California, so I'm stuck with trunks, fries and tubes, too. I store my mics in their cases when not in use. Pretty meticulous about that. But the power supplies are in a permanent position. Each PS is connected to a dedicated signal path of outboard gear. I absolutely hated keeping them on my desktop. Man, it just was troublesome, and having cables littering the desktop drove me nuts. I only have two tube mics at the moment, but I'm in the market for a third, probably an M149. Undecided. So I started looking at power supplies to see whether there were any options. Nope. Not really. Looks like Rode has the right idea with the K2, if I wanted another Rode. All power supplies should be designed like that. Functions this side: cables that side. All I'm saying.
