PetSafe Healthy Pet Simply Feed Adapter Cord provides a reliable source of power for the PetSafe Healthy Pet Simply Feed Automatic Pet Feeder. The Healthy Pet Simply Feed unit can run on batteries, but features a power adapter connection located at the back of the feeder. The adapter can be used on an everyday basis, allowing the batteries to function as a backup power source in case of power outages. A power adapter icon will appear at the top of the LCD screen when the adapter is being used as the primary power source. This indicator helps you to verify that the unit isn’t running down the batteries.

Compatible with the PetSafe Healthy Pet Simply Feed Automatic Pet Feeder
There isn't really a whole lot you can say about a power cord. I decided to get it along with the feeder so that I could use electric but also have a battery back up (especially since my cat chews cords, but I have covered it with some flex hose). I much prefer this to using just the batteries or even just the wall outlet. I tested it to see if the feeder would switch to the batteries if it lost wall power and yes, it does. So I do recommend getting the cord as well. I saw some review the feeder complaining that the cord did not come with it, but at least at the time I ordered, it was made very clear in the description that the cord and batteries were not included with the feeder.

It is the best it keeps the feeder at the same power all the time without the batteries going dead.
it is a power cord.

It is a power cord.
it connects to the wall and it connects to the feeder.
I wish that the feeder would have come with us by default rather than having to purchase it separately.
It does not seem to positively affect the clock losing time unfortunately.
It's nice to know that if I have this and the batteries that the batteries will serve as a backup in case of power outage.
Overall this gives me better peace of mind when I'm out of town and using the feeder.

I guess this is a choice but when I was ordering the feeder it goes to, I was rather upset that I had to order the adapter separately. It did it come with one! As stated in the feeder review I do not recommend so wouldn't repurchase this either.
Does the job and prevents shutdown due to dead batteries

This is the adapter for PetSafe feeders that preserves batteries and prevents shutdown if the batteries are depleted. Inexpensive and well-made -- does the job as intended. We use the adapter and batteries together, so we are protected in case the batteries die or the power goes off. Our cat is a pig when it comes to food, and we have to go through the annoying process of rationing his portions, but for some odd reason we love him and don't want him to starve when we are away either.

The cord came in within a couple days and just in time for my move in!

So nice to not have to use batteries all the time for the auto feeder!
You need this

I don't know why Petsafe doesn't include this with their feeder given the price. This adapter gives me piece of mind when I'm on vacation.
A necessary product

Purchased this to hook the feeder up to power to avoid using battery power. Works fine and since we have a backup generator this should keep the feeder working continuously and properly.
For the price of the feeder itself this should be included!

If you don’t want to buy batteries regularly, you need this! But programming the feeder is a bit of a pain, so you also want batteries in case power goes out.
