Travel Alarm Clock
March 2, 2013 10:21 AM   Subscribe

I am looking for a decent alarm clock. Any recommendations?

* should be reliable
* should be durable
* should be small and light for traveling
* should have accurate alarm time (some cheap ones with manual clock hands are off 20 minutes!)
* should have nice, soft, friendly alarm sound. Possibly I should be able to upload my own in mp3
* not too expensive

I looked at DX.com and some other places but found nothing. I would appreciate any recommendation. I use my phone but I want a backup since my phone can be off at times. Also, if put into silent mode, no alarm will sound.

I like this one. Is that in the price range you're looking for?

For travelling - Casio F-91W watch, super-cheap, reliable and accurate.

Seconding the Braun. It's not cheap and doesn't allow you to upload an MP3. It is, though, accurate and easy to set (both clock and alarm). I replaced a $10 travel clock with the Braun, and the ease of setting more than justified it for me. There's nothing worse than being jet-lagged and having to mess around setting a clock.
