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:

        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.

                        I use this Travel Alarm Clock when i travel.

                        The first one i purchase has lasted over 10 years, just purchased a second one for backup.

                        Pros:
                        Lightweight
                        Very long battery life (years)
                        Temperature Gauge (wife is temperature challenged)
                        Easy to use
                        Folds up nicely for storage/transport

                        Cons:
                        You have to remove the back cover to change time, alarm, calendar, good for travel, not good if you want to change the alarm time every morning (takes an extra 10 secs.)
                        The clock readout is 5/8", would be nice if it was larger.

                            This is my second one, the first one got knocked off the nightstand while on vacation and stepped on to break the back off at the hinges, but it still works OK, just doesn't sit up, so I keep it at home. Keep the second one in my suitcase for travel. Nice to know room temp so I can adjust the AC/heat in strange surroundings while travelling. Taking the back off to make settings is no big deal.
