Looking for a 12 volt timer


Recommended Posts

So there is a large parking lot across the street from my display. I have a donation box setup over there, and I want to run some 12 volt lights so people can see it. Since there is no way to get power over there, I'm going to use a car battery or a jump pack. Then use an $8 DMX module cycling through test mode runing about 1 meter of RGB strip. I'll probably have to charge the battery every other day.

Does any body know of a 12 volt timer that could work in a setup like this? I don't need it to run all day and night. Just during show times to conserve the battery. Has anyone tried using a simple AC timer on 12 volts? I didn't know if it would slow the clock in the timer, or if it would even work at all.

ac timer? no for one, it requires 60 hertz to operate....(in ac)

12v timers can be found on google....ranging from $30 to over $200

If you search, you may find a kit to build for less...
