Lightbulb Power Strip Question

I have a timer on one of my power strips. Can I plug a power strip into the timer that has five Finnex Stingray LED lights on it?

The only thing on the original power strip is a thermometer and an air pump.

Thanks!

I don't see why not. I am not an electrician by any means but I regularly plug up 5+ lights to a timer on a single power strip. And most of them are florescent so would draw more power than the finnex LEDs

and of course, I would never mention that the timer had 2 full power strips plugged up to it and the 6 outlet box had 3 hob filters taking up the spots the timer didn't cover......

As long as the combined draw of the lights does not exceed the stated maximum output of the timer, you should be able to safely plug them in.
If you have a quality timer, the rated output would be 15A (it should be listed somewhere on the timer) and you would probably trip the fuse before you burnt the timer.
