    hey guys need some help building a simple RC timer. I want to build a timer that will reset and start again. I want to use very basic parts resistors, caps, transistor etc. i know i can use a 555 timer but its too power hungry for my requirements. i want the timer to go off every two day cycle. the input voltage will be 5v
    if any can help please let me know
    thanks

    Have you considered CMOS? There is a 555 version, but you probably need something like the 4060, which also has an RC timer and a 14 stage ripple counter.
