    I lost mine. Bought it at 1000bulbs. Not much of a selection.

    Wherever you get it, make sure it's rated for the load you're putting on it.

    No cheap timers on light ballasts!!!

    for lights I use a small LeGrand timer mechanical, spot on and fits in the place of a single breaker. It works for ages

    I use the Autopilot Master Digital Timer. Kind of an overkill for a simple timer but it's pretty nice quality.

    I would rather have more protection than I need than less. :)
