Re: [APD] Timers
My intermatic timers seem real particular about the type of battery I
use. At first I tried expensive 'titanium' alkaline batteries, which
didn't last very log. Other timers have been running for more than a
year now, with the batteries they came with, which are standard
carbon-zinc 'heavy duty' batteries. Finding a source of carbon-zinc
batteries locally has proven quite a challenge, most everyone only
sells alkaline now.
