Product information

Automatic feeding
JBL’s practical automatic feeder is designed for the automatic feeding of aquarium fish. The feeder is suitable for all granulates up to 3 mm. Flakes, tablets and sticks cannot be moved on properly in the screw conveyor.

The automatic feeder is available in white and black.

Feeds up to 4 times a day
The JBL PRONOVO AutoFood can be programmed for up to 4 feeds a day. The feeder has an on/off switch for manual operation. The feeding times and quantity can be easily set on the display. The feeder has an air connection to keep food dry.

Easy mounting
The feeder can be mounted by suction cups or with a sturdy clamp mount. The holder can be rotated through 360 °.

With the help of an included adapter ring, the JBL PRONOVO 250 ml tins also fit on the automatic feeder if the volume is to be increased from 125 ml to 375 ml. Otherwise the food is filled into the feeder - then the format of the tin does not matter.

Does the AutoFood automatic feeder work with all types of batteries?

In general, the automatic feeder works with all AA mignon batteries. With zinc-carbon batteries it can happen that despite the display "battery full" the device suddenly switches off under load, for example when feeding. The same applies to all rechargeable mignon cells that do not discharge linearly and suffer a sudden voltage drop and are quickly "completely empty" from "completely full".
For a functioning battery indicator, we recommend alkaline manganese batteries (non-rechargeable), which are available in every supermarket and electronics retailer and represent the standard on the market.

Why does the JBL AutoFood suddenly turn off?

You’ve only pressed one button or the automatic feeder has just started feeding when the machine cuts off completely? Are the display and buttons no longer working? This is a clear signal that at least one of the batteries has too little voltage. Replace all three batteries with new / charged batteries.

I had an excellent experience with this food dispenser. First of all i really like how it looks (black colour). During the winter, when I went on a two-week vacation, I didn't want to burden anyone with the responsibility of feeding my fish. I had concerns about the amount of food and whether someone else would be able to handle it correctly. I tested this food dispenser thoroughly to ensure that it functioned flawlessly. After a few attempts, I found the perfect dosage for the fish food. I was particularly impressed by the inclusion of an air vent connection in case the food became moist. Attaching an air hose was all it took to set it up. When I returned from my vacation, I was eagerly awaiting the outcome, and I'm happy to report that everything worked perfectly.

Ich bin mehr als zufrieden, mit dem passenden Futter sind auch kleinere Portionen zu realisieren. Alles in allem sehr gut und zuverlässig. Und als plus die Standzeit zu erwähnen. Batterien halten sehr lange und problemlos für einen langen Urlaub aus

J. Le lous - French

Produit vraiment cool surtout en période de vacance.

Plus besoin d’appeler un proche pour aller nourrir les poissons car jbl auto food s’en charge.

Facile et très pratique

Réglage parfait et dose de nourriture parfaitement réglé pour l’alimentation journalier de mes poissons

Je recommande

Naja eher so ne 2.5 es Portioniert selbst auf der kleinsten Stufe immer noch zu viel Futter hinaus kommt dies kann aber auch an der Größe des Beckens liegen daher eher nicht für kleine Aquarien benutzten sonst ist es eigentlich recht gut.

M. Ulbrich - German

Ein absolut toller Futterautomat. Ich war letzten Sommer 2 Wochen im Urlaub und wollte die Fütterung meiner Fische niemandem aufdrücken. Zum einen wegen der Futtermenge und natürlich auch weil man nicht weiß ob jemand anders das so hinbekommt. Also bestellte ich mir nach einiger Recherche 3 JBL Pro Novo Futterautomaten. Sie waren 2 Tage später da. Nun ging es dran sie zu testen, damit auch wirklich nichts schief geht. Ich probierte einige Male um die richtige Dosierung zu erwischen aber dann war es perfekt. Toll ist auch das man dran gedacht hat, dass das Futter feucht werden könnte und einen Belüftungsanschluss verbaut hat. Einfach Luftschlauch dran und fertig. Nach den 2 Wochen Urlaub war ich echt gespannt aber es hat alles perfekt funktioniert.

Sinceramente es uno de los mejores alimentadores automáticos que he probado. La personalización de las cantidades y la frecuencia de alimentación es algo a tener en cuenta ya que gran parte de los alimentadores comerciales solo te deja alimentar cada 12/24h, cosa que no pasa aquí. Además, viene con pilas incluidas!

What are PUSH messages? As part of the W3C standard, web notifications define an API for end-user notifications that are sent to the user's desktop and/or mobile devices via the browser. Notifications appear on the end devices as they are familiar to the end user from apps installed on the device (e.g. emails).

These notifications enable a website operator to contact its users whenever they have a browser open - it doesn’t matter whether the user is currently visiting the website or not.

To be able to send web push notifications, all you need is a website with a web push code installed. This allows brands without apps to take advantage of many of the benefits of push notifications (personalised real-time communications at just the right moment).
