I've owned 2 of these clocks and will buy a third if something happens to my current clock. I took the first one I owned to Argentina for 6 months and dropped it repeatedly from the top bunk onto a wooden floor (not on purpose of course). It made it through the whole trip.
I found my current alarm clock at the bottom of the washing machine last night while moving my sheets from the washer to the dryer. I figured it was a goner. But after it dried out for a few hours, I popped the battery back in and it came right back on. I used it this morning without any problems.
There are more high tech travel clocks out there, but this one is a great combo between price, size, and durability.

This is a very poorly designed clock, since you have to detach the back to set the time, the alarm, etc. See other negative reviews; they have more details about why this is dangerous clock to use is you want to wake up for the meeting you flew around the world to attend!

For anyone moving between time zones, this clock is a fatal companion.

Find another clock.

    Comments about Bright Backlight Travel Alarm Clock With Temperature:

    I bought this for personal travel where I would be staying with family or at a friends house or small B&B or an Inn where it is not guaranteed that there will be an alarm clock in the bedroom. It works as described but I was unable to read the time at night without first having to press a button. And other than it being plastic and "cheap" feeling, it works just fine.

    Comments about Bright Backlight Travel Alarm Clock With Temperature:

    Amazingly, there are not a lot of good choices in travel clocks, so after recent research this is the 2nd one of these I purchased after some years. Setting the clock requires removing the small plastic back, and sliding a small knob to different functions (time, alarm, calendar, etc) which feels cheaply made, and worse with this more recent version. I would have been happier to have a stronger AA battery but the AAA works fairly well. I had to replace only because the 1st one's knobs at the folding joint broke off from wear and tear.

    Not loud enough

      Comments about Bright Backlight Travel Alarm Clock With Temperature:

      The alarm is not loud enough to awaken me. In fact, even when I am awake, the sound is very very soft. It may be OK for people who have excellent hearing, but for the many of us with a limited ability to hear high frequencies, it is useless as an alarm clock.

                Comments about Bright Backlight Travel Alarm Clock With Temperature:

                Got this as a gift over 15 years ago & have been using it regularly since then. The display started getting faint & when pressing the backlight it was even harder to see the display so I thought it was time to get a new one. Since I loved this one so much I figured i'd just get a new one vs shopping around for a different brand/product.

                Received my new one & the display was as poorly visible as the old one that I have. When pressing the backlight it does light up but the time is not visible AT ALL. I don't know if it's an issue of being on the shelf for so long or what the issue is but I did not want to risk re-ordering another one only to have the same problem.

                Brookstone has promised me a refund including shipping & hopefully that will happen.

                        My favorite feature of this alarm clock is that there is no disturbing light, I need a dark room to sleep. If I need to read the time all I have to do is push down on the bar across the top of the clock. Genius.
