Owned at my last house. Works well. I did purchase 18 gauge wire elsewhere this time though due to the 16 being hard to connect to the screws on the transformer. Screws don't open enough to get the wire to secure well. Had an issue with the wire coming loose at my last house with the 16 gauge wire.

How is conn. made at the fixture? Does fixture have a whip or is a cable clamb needed?
John S on Jul 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Typically, a main wire would extend from this transformer and each of your landscape lights would attach to this main wire. Hard to see on this image, but there are screw terminals on this to connect your main supply wire that will feed the individual lights. Each fixture will have a 12-18" pigtail to tie into the main line.

Our photo cell quit. This was so simple. It is generic, if you will, so it can be used with different systems. Just needed to hook it up and has worked perfectly dusk to dawn ever since.
Thanks you Lamps Plus for selling this and too for having it in stock,

good basic power unit
When it comes to basic outdoor landscape power units this one is good for the price. The EI core transformer consumes a bit more energy and is hotter than torrid cores, but all-in-all a good unit. I have used just over 150 of these over the last 5 years

The best
Very reliable. It’s three levels above your average transformers. It’s worth buying in my book.

Third transformer tried.
The Timberland 45 Watt Transformer in general is well built. I had to try 3 different ones to get one to work properly. There seems to be an issue with the electronic interface between the timer and the photo cell. It wouldn't respond to the desired control setting. The last on I received, (Lamps Plus was very responsive in replacing the two previous units) is working properly after 3 weeks of usage. Yes I would recommend the Transformer.
