One of my feeder timers (The Timer) has had a battery that's leaked in it.
Is there a way to get the battery acid out of it?

Baking soda and water mix with a Q-tip? Rinse real careful?

You could try some Corrosion Block spray to kill
It
If it's leached up through the wires you might as well
forget it and replace the unit

Coke or Dr. Pepper on a Q-tip or piece of cotton ball will work in a pinch to clean up battery terminals or off of battery tabs. Ask me how I know this. grin

Many of times I've poured a coke or dr pepper on a battery terminal to eat off the corrosion.

Good luck. If you caught it in time you might be able to save it. If not that battery acid is the death knell of mose electronics.
