is this a wind up clock Oct 29, 2013
This is not a wind up clock. It carries three AA batteries and has a silent sweeping seconds hand. It also carries a light sensor which illuminates when it becomes dark. Once the hour and minute hands are exposed to bright sunlight, they glow bright green. The face of the clock glows in a very dark room and is calming to the eyes. The orange glow tell you that the alarm setting is off and the green glow would indicate that the alarm has been set. The alarm itself is not excessively loud and does not wake you up with a headache but is cool to moderate sounding. Hope this information helps.
Yes. That's what we're using and they're fine. That said, cheap batteries last over a year, so it may be a waste of the expensive Sanyos.
It takes 3 double AA batteries. Its a great clock. My 8 year old son uses it and likes it very much.
It was for a few months but now is is not
Sure can. Open the battery compartment in the rear and you'll find a switch to turn the led off. Even with the switch off though, you can still light it up manually by pushing the snooze button on top.
How do you know when it's time for new batteries? Will it just stop working? And what if that happens at night? Jul 7, 2014
I haven't had it run out of batteries yet, but I also use an electric alarm clock (set about 15 minutes later) as back-up. They sort of back-up each other. If the power is out, the wind-up can still go off. If the wind-up runs out of batteries, the other one would go off.
How is the alarm sound? Grating (edge of your nerves expecting the alarm)? Pleasant? Soothing? Apr 13, 2015
Pleasant ..but enough to wake you
