The World Time Alarm Clock w/LED Flashlight is a rather nifty gadget that combines an alarm clock with a simple, "dial-in" time zone change function and an LED flashlight to use for those sleepy trips to the head {bathroom} in your darkened hotel room.


This product is fairly complex, and I don't feel like writing a mini novella tonight, so I'll direct you to the manual that comes with the product.

To keep your World Time Alarm Clock w/LED Flashlight well-fed, unclip & remove the battery door, carry it to the top of the basement stairs, and huck it into the basement just crawling with hungry, hungry termites who sniff & snuffle at the damn thing for a minute, find it totally unpalatable, and drag it to the queen -- who does the exact same thing, piddles all over it, and then instruct the worker termites to do the same...O WAIT!!! YOU'LL NEED THAT!!! So just set it aside instead!!!

At the bottom of the main battery compartment is a smaller chamber that holds three AG13 (LR44) button cells. If necessary, remove and dispose of or recycle the AG13 button cells. Place three new AG13 button cells into this chamber, orienting them so that their flat-ends (+) positives face the end of the unit with the flashlight in it. If necessary, place that third cell in between the other two.

Install two new AAA cells into the larger compartment, orienting them so that their flat-ends (-) negatives face the spring for them in each chamber.

Place the battery door back on, and be (ALMOST) done with it.
Aren't you glad that you didn't lob that battery door down the basement stairs with all of those hungry termites with full pissinary bladders now?

I say, "ALMOST" here because you do need to reset the time & date before you can place the clock back on your night table.

The World Time Alarm Clock w/LED Flashlight is not waterproof or drop-resistant; it was meant to be placed on a night table and occasionally carried to use as a flashlight, not a super durable flashlight meant to be thrashed, trashed, and abused. So I won't throw it against the wall, stomp on it, try to drown it in the {vulgar term for feces}bowl or the cistern, run over it, swing it against the concrete floor of a patio, use a sledgehammer to bash it open in order to check it for candiosity, fire it from the cannoñata (I guess I've been watching the TV program "Viva Piñata" too much again - candiosity is usually checked with a laser-type device on a platform with a large readout, a handheld wand that Langston Lickatoad uses, or a pack-of-cards-sized instrument that Fergy Fudgehog uses; and the cannoñata is only used to shoot piñatas to piñata parties away from picturesque Piñata Island), send it to the Daystrom Institute for additional analysis, or inflict upon it punishments that a flashlight may have inflicted upon it.

So this section of the World Time Alarm Clock w/LED Flashlight's web page will seem ***SIGNIFICANTLY*** more bare than this section of the web page on a web page about a flashlight.

Water-resistance is a big no-no -- if you take it to the bathroom one sleepy night and it fell into the toliet, you'll very likely be S.O.L.

It is not yet known whether this product will honour DST (daylight saving time) or not (I believe that it does!); this will be one of those, "only time will tell" situations. This product will not be liked any less if it does not honour DST, as many other clocks do not.

UPDATE: 03-13-14
Much as I suspected, this clock does not honour Daylight Saving Time -- that is, you have to manually set it forward one hour when DST begins and back one hour when DST ends.

Very handy product to keep on your night table and take on travels with you
Has a somewhat futuristic appearance to it
Potential for long battery life in the clock portion

Relatively easy to set the time & date
Unit emits a beep every time a button is pressed

Changing flashlight batteries necessitates removal of clock batteries (this is, by far, what nocked the most stars off its rating!)
Potential for short battery life in the flashlight portion
