Sonic Bomb Jr. Alarm Clock

"... for the deepest sleepers, extra loud vibrating alarm clock with pulsating light."

Fabulous Husband found the perfect alarm clock for someone deafened like me. I love that it has a battery back up for when there is no electricity.

I used to have the big old fashioned clunky brass alarm clock with 2 bells to wake me up. I don't remember how it broke or what happened to it, but I've not found a replacement for it, though I've been looking for one for years. I'm pretty sure it woke the whole neighborhood, it was that great.

My Iphone has a vibrating feature for the alarm, but it just hasn't been enough to wake me. The other day, I woke up about 5 minutes past the time it first went off. I was beginning to worry that it no longer sufficiently wakes me. Then Fabulous Husband looked around and found this wonderful clock.

It has a long cord to the vibrating mechanism that goes under the pillow. Even if it ends up somewhere else in bed, it is enough to wake just about anyone.

If you or someone you love has trouble waking up and haven't found the right clock yet, I suggest you try one of these. I think it's about one of the neatest gadgets we've found yet. I love that it has the battery backup.

I never have to worry about not noticing the alarm again!


  1. I have this clock. Been using it for a few years. Very good. :)

    1. When I first used it. It scared the crap out of me. lol The next occasion when it scared me, was when I got up early and forgot to turn off the alarm. I was directly in room below my bedroom. On computer at time. Home quiet. And when I put my hearing aids in, I heard something but not make out what.

      I was scanning downstairs till I realised it was quiet everywhere but room I was in. Still puzzling, but sunk in not long after, and I looked up towards ceiling and though ha! Ran upstairs to bedroom to find it was going off. It had been going off half an hour before I realised. I am glad I only used vibrate function and not sound as well. God knows what neighbours would have thought if i had it blaring out.

  3. Oh, Liz, How funny! It startled me the first time, too! I've got it set for the whole shebang. I'm afraid the vibrating mechanism will fall off the bed, and if that happens, I won't feel it go off..so I set the sound on as well.

  4. Only problem with vibrating alarms is the neighbors complaining about the noise. Does this vibrate with no sound at all??

  5. Yes, it does! Did you read the comment Liz left above? Check out what she has to say about it, Moebius. :-)
