    Hi guys

    My wife bought me a sera A+ automatic feeder because of our upcoming vacation. Not going to be around for about 10 days.

    What I need to know is what are your thoughts on this feeder, can I rely on it to do the job in my absence, and how long does the battery last.

    Set it up, it did the feed this evening, and the quantity seemed fine.

    Never used that particular feeder before, but one piece of advice I can offer is don't use it inside a closed hood, I found the flake food gets damp and clumps up causing it to not come out at all. So try to keep it in a clear, dry area if possible.

    Thanks for the heads up.

    Currently fitted it on the side with the feeding flap open. Also, using pellets not flakes..... So hopefully that helps. Still got some time before the holiday, so I will let it run and monitor

    use the smaller pellets.
    Ocean Nutrition for example have two different pellet sizes. The smaller one works better for me in my Auto Feeders
