Then about a week ago, which is about 4 months after I received it, the clock stopped working.

They ignored my email request for help and when I called them, they said the clock gets no more than 30 days warranty.

Its powered by a battery, it just happens to be a copper-zinc battery which uses water as a conductor.

The claim that this product is environmentally friendly is rubbish. Its powered by a battery, it just happens to be a copper-zinc battery which uses water as a conductor. After a year or so the zinc strip completely corrodes away leaving you with a piece of plastic which doesn't work and you can't replace the batteries so you have to bin it. Not so environmentally friendly now is it?!

Having said that it works well as a clock for a while and it looks quite funky.

Considering the $20 MSRP of this clock, the designers didn't think through the design all the way. My clock is missing a few segments brand new out of the box. After taking it apart I realized that the clock itself is not water proof/resistant at all and it appears that some water leaked into the clock while I was filling it and damaged part of the digits. It's amazing that for $20 they couldn't afford to put a half cent rubber gasket around the edge of the clock to prevent water from doing this.

I recommend anyone who buys this to not fill this under a sink, try a water bottle or something so that you can better control the water.

Edit: Now the clock only seems to work for about a day at a time before it starts to get very dim and shut off at which point I have to shake it to get it to come back but by then the clock is several hours off making it essentially worthless as a clock. I've tried changing the lemon/water mix several times now and get the same results.

Some of the reviews here are misleading - there is no "battery" hidden inside this thing, the clock is powered by a "galvanic cell" with tap water as the electrolyte. Here is a little chemistry lesson that explains how to get the most out of this clever little clock.

The zinc metal oxidizing and dissolving into the water ("corroding away") is what generates the tiny amount of electric current needed to run the clock. When the zinc gets used up, game over - toss the clock. How long the zinc electrode lasts depends on the conductivity of the water you put into the clock. If needed, better to add salt than acid (vinegar) because it is harder to control the reaction rate of those aggressive H+ ions. Also, acid may cause a buildup of flammable hydrogen gas over the zinc anode, which could be inconvenient near an open flame :-( The clock will not work with distilled or softened water - reduction of the iron sulfates and carbonates in tap water (scale) is also needed to power the clock. When the clock is used up you should see reddish brown iron deposits on the copper cathode. In fact, the warm, yukky, brownish water that comes out out of the tap first thing in the morning is ideal to run the clock because it is full of dissolved ionic solids.

First try filling the clock without any salt - your tap water may be hard enough to run the clock as-is. If it doesn't run on plain tap water, make a weak salt solution on the side (a pinch of salt dissolved in a teaspoon of water in a tea cup). Add a couple of salt water drops into the tap water-filled clock, shake it, and repeat until the clock starts to run. Take care not to overfill the clock! After the clock runs down, change the tap water and add some fresh salt solution.

I received the clock at the end of August. The right hand segments of the minutes display stopped working recently, 8:08 looks like 8:0E.

Although this clock is water-powered you need to add a small amount of a weak acid like lemon juice or vinegar. However, the electronic/display bezel is not water proof. I suspect that some water got into the display, the electronics and display are not sealed.

I called Bedol but they don't warranty the clock for problems like this.

You will note that I am the only adult reviewer here who actually owns this. I didn't buy it for someone else. The Bedol clock was great at first. I received it in November, and every couple of weeks, I would change the salt water mixture, as directed. Then about a week ago, which is about 4 months after I received it, the clock stopped working. I took it apart completely, cleaned it thoroughly, added fresh salt water, and put it back together, but it still won't work. I have no idea what to do with it now, as it wouldn't be worth the shipping to send it back to Bedol for repairs, not to mention the cost of repair. It's pathetic, though, since I've had this clock for less than 6 months and it's already broken. I would not recommend this product.

It looks great, exactly as the picture in a nice combination of crystal blue & silver. As it works with lemon juice, I don't know if the problem is with my Californian lemons or with the Florida's water, but it works very bad. It turns off very often and I have to constantly refill the lemon juice.
It is hilarious, when suddenly, the water reservoir cover jumps in the air, just as a Champagne cork. The lemon juice ferments and it explodes - Myth Busters go there! It is a great bomb-alarm clock, literally.

I gave this clock to one of my nieces for Christmas. It was easy to get it started and it worked fine. What impressed me and made me chuckle was that during the day, every man in the extended family had to inspect it and see just what made it tick. I thought my niece would like it to use with her students as a teaching tool. I was amazed at how mesmerizing it was for just about every man who saw it. It's a really great gift idea!
