When M198.com contacted me for sending products for review, I spent some time searching for the most appropriate gadgets that could be useful not only for me, but also for you. That’s why I stopped at the Water Powered Clock and a wireless mouse. I have two main reasons to want these gadgets in my life. Firstly, I’m trying to get rid of most of the cables around my desk, making use of the latest wireless technologies and, secondly, I’m trying to find all the available eco-friendly alternatives to standard electronics.
One of the most important devices in our lives is, of course, the clock. I, for example, have a clock in every room – a wall clock in the bedroom, a desk clock in the kitchen and another one in the living. What I’m planing to do next is to replace the one in the kitchen with the eco-friendly alternative, the water-powered clock. Now let’s see how it works and what you can do with it.
In the box
The Water-Powered Clock from M198.com comes in a small carton box, with the instructions manual and some safety instructions. The clock is surrounded by a durable, transparent plastic material and has a size of 10 x 8.9 cm at 0.385 grams. Mine is blue, but you also can find it in red, green and yellow.
One good thing is that you can start using the clock right out of the box.
Features and benefits
Switching to a water-powered clock seems to be very economic as you only need to spend a few dollars to get one and that’s it. It doesn’t require batteries, electricity or winding. You only need to fill it with a little tap water, up to the marked limit on the back, and set the time and date for the first time, using the two buttons on the front.
Thanks to the built-in memory chip, the clock won’t remain behind when you’ll need to refill the tank. You can tell when it requires more water by the fading numbers on the display. The time and date settings needs to be done only the first time you fill it with water.
According to specialists, although this clock doesn’t power from water directly, it features a piece of Zinc as the energy source, which slowly dissolves to enable a usage life of several months or years. The water inside plays the role of the conducting agent for the electrical circuit.
Those of you needing a wake-up clock should check other models available on the market, as this version doesn’t feature alarm function.
Do I love it?
Definitely! It looks nice. It’s small enough to fit any space. The display shows the time and date clearly. It powers from water only and it’s cheap.
You can find it online at M189.com at a price of $6.50.
