    This may be just what I need for my nano. Lot's of features!  8) Anyone using them or know how much they are?

    Good find! [smiley=thumbs_up.gif]

    That's really cheap!
    I might have to get off the dime and check it out.

    Seems limited in the alternating phases.  More Flexiblity by buying separate timers and using them on surge protected power strips. JMHO.

    What you talking about Willis?
    The 15 minute intervals?

    I guess I could see that if I was looking for a wave timer, but for a typical nano like mine I think this would be great for $25.

    I just have a pump for a skimmer, 2 lights with 2 cords, and a filter pump and heater. So I could plug the lights in the timer outlets and use the rest for the other stuff.

    My quick read was that you could only use two sockets at a time and that wouldn't do for me. Too much stuff with filters, heater, skimmers, lights and fans.

    that was a quick read...

    it has 4 timer-controlled outlets (2 daytime, 2 nightime).

    I always appreciate a good "Different Strokes" quote. Can you imagine what would have happened if Gary Coleman would have won the governorship of California?

    I know someone who has one of these. I have been thinking of getting one.

    I just bought one. I'll let you know what I think of it after I've used it for a bit.
