In today’s world of LED bulbs, solar panels, and automatic cars, it’s surprising how little eco-friendly and alternative-energy powered products have broken into consumer electronics. The day-to-day products like clocks, televisions, and coffee makers remain tethered to the electric outlets they rely upon. Enter The Bedol Water Clock – a clock that is powered by water and NEVER needs batteries or electricity.
The Bedol Water Clock is an eco-friendly and unique gift idea that uses the ions in water to create its own power. Just add water and chemistry does the rest. Proprietary metallic plates channel the ions in the water into an electrical current that powers the clock and the alarm. Depending on the water composition of water, your Bedol Water Clock will run for up to 12 months! (They recommend using bottled water if your unfiltered tap water doesn’t run your clock for at least 2-3 months.) Instead of replacing batteries, just replace the water. The Bedol Water Clock has a built-in memory chip that will retain the time for 2 minutes while you change the water.
Features for The Bedol Water Clock include 12H and 24H time mode, daily and hourly alarm modes. It also keeps track of the date and display seconds.
I love the colorful designs and how the clock design gives a nod to the water that is powering it. The fact that it only uses water to run means that it will always work, even if you’re out of power or you run out of batteries. When you get your clock, definitely read the instruction packet that’s included as it provides additional guidance on when to replace your water and how to adjust the different clock settings.
With a $26 MSRP, the Bedol Water Clock is a quirky, fun, practical and affordable gift idea for anyone who ever needs to know what time it is – whether or not they’re a “treehugger.” You can pick up this cool water-powered clock online on Amazon as well as at the Bedol website at www.bedolwhatsnext.com. In addition to The Bedol Water Clock, Bedol offers a variety of other innovative home and office products.
