One zone systems solenoide and clock

Hey guys,
Was wondering what you all use as a solenoid and clock for one zone systems. I have no power so I figure something with a battery will work. I saw orbit and gardena has something but trying to stay away from that.

would like to be able to find something for outdoor real cheap...

Cheap product = cheap results. For around. 80 you could do a hunter node and valve

80$ is fine by me and is cheap for one zone if it does the job

I never used a hunter node, do you have a part number or picture? Will I be able to program it like a normal clock based on date and time? Odd even days??? I'll call my supplier but where I'm from, they are not so friendly these days.

Explain in full detail "I have no power" - the words alone convey nothing

For battery operated controllers, I find this one easier to use, and so far it has been more reliable than the Hunter.

I recommend the Hunter XC (I think) Which can go battery or AC power. You'll have to use the proper solenoid for the application.

No power means I don't have access to 120volt power outlet.

We installed two Hunter Nodes with DC latching solenoid valves last year at our farm and so far they have worked without issue.
