Not yet sure,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Automatic Cat Feeder Combo/CSF-3XL 1.8 GAL./ with Bowl, Stand and Digital Timer (Misc.)
So far this works as expected. We got it for a dual purpose - to allow the cat to eat while we were gone for a few days, but also to try and get him more dependent on the feeder for food rather than us at 4:00 am each morning.
One out of two ain't bad...
The product is well made, and went together pretty easily. It took about half an hour to portion out the food properly with the adjustments. Once we got it set up the portioning works pretty consistently; many other feeders we saw only go down to 1/4 cup portions, this allows us to do more feedings, smaller portions which is nice. The cat has not yet been able to get in to it, tip it over or anything... he just comes to us and begs.
My only beef is with the cord. It ends in a wall wart type AC adapter. This is heavy, and then you plug that in to the timer which sticks out another inch or two. It looks ungainly and the unbalanced weight of the combination keeps pulling it out of our old electrical sockets.
But, the digital timer is pretty good.
Wish there was a battery back up in the feeder, especially at this price.

Bought an APC battery backup as for a small computer, and turned OFF the beeper (drains it during a power out). This runs the feeder, litter box and fountain if the power is interrupted. It is made to accommodate the large adapters and can also be used as a power strip (i.e.-some outlets are NOT on power backup).
