    Has anyone seen a 12 volt pop door opener.

    I have the 11volt types on timers - but we generally loose power - so the timers get screwed up bad and not reliable. I could install light sensors but the coop is in a shaded area. A 12 volt option would be great, as i have a 12 volt system that could run for 3 weeks on a single charge.
