I have one very similar to your second option. It works well, but the only flaw is, that they forgot the "on and/or off" switch, so you need to resort to flipping one of the batteries around so that they will not deplete when not in actual use. I think that there is one manufacturer that sells under 100 retailer names.

Be careful... I don't know if this really is an intervalometer... looks like it might allow you to specify how long the exposure will be and perhaps when to trigger and exposure, but I am not sure this will take phots at intervals.

Note that Yongnuo makes an intervalometer - see:

Timescapes - Digital Timelapse Discussion - View topic - Just received the Yongnuo Intervalometer

Given this piece of equipment I have my doubts that the timer you are looking at will do time lapse...
