    Probably made in the same factory........ just the labels are different.

    I was told the wired Phottix TR-90 is also the same thing as the wired Shutterboss.

    Re: Remote on Duration (ML-L3) Limit too Short

    To your original question, if you snap a picture with the remote, the timeout restarts. If I'm set up on the bird feeder and using the ml-l3, I'll set it for 15 minutes and just snap a useless picture when it feels like about 10 minutes has gone buy. This keeps the remote mode active for another 15 minutes. Remote mode runs your battery down pretty fast, so depending on your needs, the other remotes might be better for you. I have some of the other remotes but the ML-l3 is quick and easy.
    I must have a really good camera.

    FWIW, there are several very inexpensive interval timers (around $20 class) connecting to the camera shutter release port with a cable (NOT via the hot shoe). See for example https://www.amazon.com/Neewer-Shutte...dp/B003Q9RERY/

    or https://www.amazon.com/Neewer-Digita.../dp/B005LTH7QA

    The choice should say for your Nikon camera model, so that the cord connector fits, i.e., if it is 10 pin or MC-DC2 compatible, etc.

    You use them with camera Bulb shutter setting, which stays open as long as the timer runs.

    There are several other relabled versions that are the same unit. These appear identical to the $160 Nikon MC-36A timer https://www.amazon.com/Nikon-Multi-F.../dp/B0090WQPFS which for the last year or two appears now offered under various Chinese lablels for around $20. I have one labeled Yongnuo, and it works great.

    Remote on Duration  (ML-L3) Limit too Short
    Received the VELLO Freewave wireless remote shutter release from B&H for $35.
    I now kick myself for never finding out about this marvellous device until now!
    Receiver is 2" x 1 "; Transmitter (Wired or Wireless) is 3" x "
    Great instructions but it is quite intuitive - even this old guy figured it out.
    Works great...as advertised!

    ^ That's the same one I ordered for my wife. She was having the same problems that you were.
