    Travel Clock

    Does anyone have any recommendations for a digital travel clock? The LED light has gone dark (maybe it's a DED now instead of an LED) on my old Brookstone travel alarm and I like to be able to see what time it is on the road if I wake up in the middle of the night.

    I tried Amazon, but it doesn't seem like there is any consensus on a good travel alarm.

    I travel a couple of times a month all over the U.S. on business for several days at a time and for the last 20 years I've used only a Bulova wind-up, fold-up alarm clock. They can be found for $29.95.

    I also carry a mini-LED flashlight and keep both next to the bed at night.

    I can usually see the lume on the clock but the light helps also and I use the light when I need to use the head at night, it's a lifesaver rather than stumbling around in a strange room.

    The wind-up clock has never failed me, and I tried battery powered clocks and always worry the battery will die.

    Do you have a cell phone?
    As much as us WISes might hate to admit it, a cell phone is, at times, more practical than a watch or clock. A travel alarm is one of those times.
    Cell phones have alarm tones that are incredibly loud (you know that guy with the annoying ringtone you can hear across the room? that kind of loud.) You can hook your charger up next to the nightstand, set the alarm, and forget about it. If you need to know the time in the middle of the night, wear your watch to bed, or just pick up your cell phone and look at it. If you need a light, bring a small flashlight (I recommend this) or use your cell phone.

    Radio Shack, Walmart and Target have them in my area. It's not something to spend much money or time shopping from imho.
