Light timers?

  1. Just a quick question! Would any light timer work? Such as one from walmart? Or would you recommend a more expensive brand?

I av paid more for em at times from grow shop as was too lazy to go shopping !!!! But any timer will do imo . Hope it goes well. Xxx

  3. Anything made by Intermatic is what you should buy. Yeah you can buy cheaper but cheap solder connectors vs screwed fastened connectors will have you never having to worry that a power surge will start a flash fire. Been there, and it wasn't pretty, so don't do that...

  5. And put in the battery backup right away! I waited. Because I work two jobs there's things that I can miss over a day or even two. Almost wound up with a tent full of Herms. :D

    Be kind. Perfect your craft. Give more than you take. We are family.

  6. As long as its rated amps is higher than what your lights are drawing any should be fine
