H2 O'Clock

Water: The source of life, and now, punctuality. By harnessing the electrical conductivity of ions in water for clean energy, this ingenious alarm clock runs on ordinary tap water to keep its system on time for up to eight months or more.

An internal memory chip even remembers the time for you when you refresh the water. With an easy-to-read digital face and a handy alarm, you can dive into each new day knowing that you're helping to keep toxic batteries out of landfills. Features daily and hourly alarms with 12-hour and 24-hour clock settings. Made in China.

Nice idea but cheaply made

Comments about WATER ALARM CLOCK:

Our scientifically-minded college student daughter loved the idea, but when she went to fill the container, just having her palm on the face of the clock as she opened it caused the face to cave in a little. It still works, but she feels like she broke it in the first few seconds of having it, and we all feel bad. I think USA-made and/or union-made would be better quality.

Greta before it broke

Comments about WATER ALARM CLOCK:

This product is very neat in concept. I really enjoyed this clock until it broke wi gentle use. It's too bad as this would make a great present for friends and family!!

An internal piece appears to have fallen off which renders it useless. I would recommend this except for it broke within a few months under gentle circumstances/use.

    Comments about WATER ALARM CLOCK:

    This clock is functional and a conversation piece. It is unusual because there are no batteries and I purchased the clock because I was curious how it ran on water. I like the look and color and I can only comment how pleased I am with it.

    Great idea, but not so great product.

    By 

    from Seattle, WA

    About Me Casual User

    Pros

    • Funky appearance
    • Uses water as energy

    Cons

    • Difficult To Set
    • No back-light
    • Volume too low

    Best Uses

      Comments about WATER ALARM CLOCK:

      I bought this to use as a back-up alarm in case my other alarm didn't go off. But the alarm volume is so low I don't even wake up to it. It's also a little confusing to set the first couple times. And it doesn't have a back-light so you can't see what time it is in the middle of the night. It's a great idea, just not a product that works for me.

      Using in home office. Like that I can put it anywhere, cuz there is no cord! There is no light so not good for bedroom, in case one wants to see what time it is at night.
