Battery Operated Clock for Power Outages

Power Outage Tip: Keep at least one battery operated clock in running condition. That way you'll still be on time for work and appointments if the power goes out.

It might also be a good idea to have an old-fashioned wind-up alarm clock so that you have a way to wake up in the morning....we don't need one in our family as our son always wakes us at 6 am....even on week-ends!

Some radio alarm clocks have a 9 volt batter backup that will last through most power outages (as long as you take the time to stuff a battery in there). Got one of those wind up jobs myself. Always rings too early in the morning though :)

I use my cell phone's alarm clock & keep it close by all the time. We used to use digital clock on our nightstand with the red glaring light. No more of that!

Also keep a battery operated fan or 2 . I find I can cope with darkness easier than no moving air . & I like windup clocks because I like the tic toc sound .

I don't even own an electric clock. Every one of mine are battery powered. That way if I lose power during the nite and have an appointment the next morning, I don't have to worry that my electric clock didn't go off!

The only electric clocks that I have are clock radios and they have battery back up, which I do keep batteries in. Talking about batteries I have an elecric lift chair that requires battery back up and I have a girl friend who has one too, but refuses to put a battery in it. She has told me a couple times that when there has been a power outage when she was reclining she had an awful time getting out of the chair. I would be afraid by the time I got worked forward enough to get my feet on the floor the chair would tip forward, but she is one of these people that do things her way.
