Every once in a while, I like to point out things that you need for your dorm room. Some things are big like dorm microwaves, while other things may be small like the item I’m talking about today, an alarm clock. Every student needs an alarm clock. If you don’t have one, how are you going to wake up for class each and every morning?
Today, a lot of students are resorting to their cellphones to help them wake up each and every morning but there is one problem with this. Some students find that their cell phone battery dies and the alarm simply doesn’t go off. This isn’t what you want. This is why I recommend you look into getting an alarm clock that plugs into the wall.
This Sony alarm clock is relatively cheap and is going to run you less than $20. I know most of you are wondering about an alarm clock because a clock is a clock, right? Well no, there are many different features that each one holds and makes it unique. This Sony for example will have a backup battery in case your power goes out, it has an automatic daylight savings time adjustment and a programmable sleep timer. This is great for those that are worried about the power going out.
When you first glance at this alarm clock, you’re going to think it’s going to cost you a fortune but it doesn’t. In fact, it’s going to cost you less than $25. For those that want a lot more than an alarm clock, I find this one to be very cool when it comes to features. This La Crosse branded clock displays the time and temperature onto a wall or ceiling, it has an atomic clock feature for automated accuracy, a large LCD screen and more.
If you want something really fancy, you will want to consider this WiFi Radio. I love this radio because it allows me to listen to Internet radio as well without having to turn on my computer. As long as I have Internet access, I will be able to access just about any Internet radio station online.
There are a lot of cool alarm clocks out there and I highly recommend you pick one up and not just rely on your cell phone. For as little as $20 or as much as $150, you can pick up some really cool and unique alarm clocks out there.
