  1. Hey guys I am a first time grower, looking for a cheap timer. I will be plugging four grow lights into it. Any recommendation for a cheap, and effective timer. THanks in advance. Also an cheap and effective surge protectors THANKS!

  2. any one will do honestly
    i run cheap walmart timers. same for 2 years, multiple ballasts. can run straight from wall, or a quality power strip

  3. I know this may sound stupid, but can i plug four of my lights into one timer somehow? 
  4. i'm sure you could
    doesn't mean it's a good idea
  5. For more powerful ballasts(600w+) you need specialist contactors. What lights are you using?
  6. Im using these lights http://www.amazon.com/dp/B000S5OK12/ref=as_li_ss_til?tag=growwcom07-20&camp=0&creative=0&linkCode=as4&creativeASIN=B000S5OK12&adid=031AB3862AQQ6VFJ9W4R

    [SIZE=12pt]Are they fine to use, ive still planning on what to order, those are my choices atm. Should i get seperate timers, for each clamp? [/SIZE]
  7. Yea, you can use one timer, just hook a surge protector to the timer, then plug your lights in to the surge protector. Four CFL shouldn't hurt anything.
