Does Anyone Still Make A Battery Mister Timer?

roserx(8)July 30, 2007

I am seeking a battery mister timer until I can hardwire an electric one. I believe Melnor made one, model #3060, but that model number also pertains to their 6 cycle electronic non-mister timer. I am looking for one that will mist for 1-2 min every 10-15 min during the daylight hours.

While not advertised as a mister timer I believe this would work for you.

the current Melnor 3060 Duo Timer (two outlets, only 1 of which is on the timer) has a misting isn't part of the description, but it is there. for each cycle you can choose to turn the mist for 2 minutes, off for 6 minutes option. i ordered it from amazon. i actually prefer it to the older version, which i also have primarily because it uses a 9 volt battery rather than the AAs used by the older model, and the 9V lasts longer for me.

When I went to Amazon and looked at the Melnor timer, alot of people had very bad things to say about that timer. It is a good price for what you get. I haven't really been able to find a better timer unless I go up to alot more money. But with all of the bad comments, I am hesitant to buy it.

So, is anyone using this Melnor timer here and liking it? Any other timers you can suggest for mist propagation?

Here is both an electric 6 station and a 1 station battery timer.

Better than a timer is a thing called an electronic leaf. You set the leaf moisture desired and it only mists when it dries past that moisture level.

i have 6 of the melnors--3 different types (i think they have a new model every year). of the original 2, purchased 2 years ago, one went bad within a month (wouldn't turn on with a new battery). all the others have worked fine since purchase. i like the misters--they have made the difference betwen rooted cuttings and dead cuttings. can't beat the price.
