Product Description

The new H2O Multifunction Clock from Tango Group is the latest in ecological and environmental design. Incorporating the revolutionary and patented, H2O water powered battery, together with innovative use of conventional digital technology the H2O Multifunction Clock offers the user an environmental design solution for a product that is used in every day life. This has all been made possible by groundbreaking developments in portable power technology operated by an inexhaustible resource - "water". The patented technology utilizes two electrodes consisting of specially formulated alloys, one positive, and the other negative. When immersed in water an electrochemical reaction takes place resulting in the production of electrical energy. To maintain a constant supply of energy simply refill as the water evaporates, typically every 2 to 3 months. The H2O water battery has a minimum continuous life of at least 2 years. In addition to this, the H2O water battery (unlike all other conventional batteries) can be stored in its dry state indefinitely and can be left to dry out at any time during its life and its life extended indefinitely... As all the components of the H2O water battery are recyclable, the benefits over traditional batteries are countless. Every year billions of conventional dry cell batteries are used, and the recycling of such waste is not only expensive but often incomplete, resulting in hazardous pollution and damage to our environment. The H2O Multifunction Clock is the most unique powered product anywhere in the world today. By just adding water you are providing your product with an endless source of energy. At the end of the H2O water battery's life (indicated by dimming of the display) simply replace the battery and start all over again. Not only is the H2O Multifunction Clock environmentally friendly, innovative and good-looking, it boasts a range of functions that are initiated by simply rotating the clock through 90-degree turns.

Save your money and buy a real clock.

Battery has to be replaced periodically and the company offers no way to recycle your existing battery.

Maybe more instructions need to be provided or made clearer, or I could have a doozy.

Easy to set up and the way you rotate the clock through 90 degrees to access the different modes is a good idea.The construction is quite good but the clock lacks any kind of backlighting, making reading it in anything other than bright conditions difficult.
A worthwhile and unusual product though.

I bought this clock because I wanted something that wouldn't use electricity and would be eco-friendly. Sadly I was quite disappointed for several reasons, the main one being that the water-battery is NOT reusable and when it dies you have to buy a new one from the company website. Yes, you can refill the battery with water several times, but eventually the battery has to be replaced completely. I'm not sure how much it costs, because I'm refusing to buy one. My original battery lasted about 6 months. Other reasons why this clock is not eco-friendly:

1) The product is made of a non-recyclable plastic.
2) Battery has to be replaced periodically and the company offers no way to recycle your existing battery.
3) Replacement batteries must be shipped, which costs more money and uses more energy.

If you really want a low-impact alarm clock I would get something solar powered, or a wind-up clock.

I received this clock as a gift over a year ago, and have used it primarily to monitor indoor temperature in an old condo that doesn't have central heating or a thermostat, although all the other functions work. The directions are simple and very clear. This would make a fun gift for a child or adult who will exercise a little care; for example, the battery contacts need to be kept dry to avoid corrosion.

This uses a small non-recyclable water-activated battery that lasts about a year (as advertised, anyway) and has to be re-ordered from the companys UK website:
[...]
(The website listed in the instructions does not exist.)
Minimum 2 batteries, and with shipping to the US may cost more than the clock. By comparison, clocks that use AA batteries often go longer, are fraction of the cost, and the batteries can be recycled. This basically makes this an expensive throwaway novelty item.
As another reviewer implied, the Eco tag does not really apply.
