Just got this new job, its amazing, unfortunately last week i SLEPT THROUGH both of the alarms on my phone. i woke up at the time i usually leave for work :smh: needless to say i got up Put clothes on and ran out. ended up being 12 minutes late, which is not a big deal usually, but im still on my probation period |I


Anyways im looking for a nice alarm clock. something that CAN be plugged into the wall, but if somehow it gets unplugged, it has a battery backup. i havent bought one in years so i dont even know where to look. would want one at least a little stylish so it doesnt look like im a 60 year old man.

i was thinking of getting that one that jumps off the dresser. :lol:

any suggestions?

(please dont say your phone. i think mine ended up on mu pillow thats why i didnt wake up)

I just have a simple beeping alarm that gets louder over time. I usually leave my blinds/windows open too, so as soon as I open my eyes the light wakes me up as well.

I can't listen to music as an alarm. After a few days, I start hating the song.

iphone- i wake up to michael jackson - beat it . It has a gong melody in the beginning of the song that works perfectly as an alarm.

I know you said don't recommend your phone, but I have yet to sleep through one alarm with my phone's alarm. It's incredibly annoying and loud and I keep the phone on the other side of the room so I have to get up to turn it off.

Then again, I have slept through fire alarms and my house alarm one time, so who knows.

It's probably just called a battery backup. I have an iHome clock from 5 years ago that had a small battery in it just in case the power went out.

I have the beginning of lust for life by drake on a loop as my alarm. I hate loud alarms.

Get one of them helicopter things that launch across the room and you have to pick it up.

I just use my comp as my alarm clock.

It's so damn loud that it's impossible for me to not hear it.

Yeah I set one on my phone, then one like 2 minutes later on one of those old school ones with pretty much only a snooze button. I had I I-home alarm clock for a few years that had a back up battery. I loved that thing. You could set like 3 separate alarms, It randomly stopped working one day and I never replaced it.

Bruh just get like a 10 dollar joint from wal-mart. I'm a heavy sleeper so that music and using your phone mess does not work for me. I've had this same 10 dollar one for 7 years now and it has never failed me. Impossible for me to sleep through it.

I use both my macbook and my iphone to wake me up, I have my iphone set up with the regular marimba going off every 5 minutes, and my macbook plays French Montana - AInt Worried Bout Nuthin', sure fire way to wake me up, I hate French Montana so i have to turn it off ASAP.
