Question about Sharper Image (ZIPCONNECT) Clock Radio

Open Question

Zip connect on this clock radio (and also one on my daughters VW Beetle from Sharper Image) won't charge devices anymore with Zip Connect

My zip connect wouldn't charge my Iphone 4 when I had it and now I realize it doesn't charge my iPad 2 either (both with 30 pin connectors). It used to work when I had the 3Gs phone. I had thought maybe there was just some 'difference' in the 30 pin setup and thought maybe connecting a '30 pin to lightning converter' to it might change the issue but that doesn't work either. Then I thought that maybe I could just connect a headphone line to it and connect it to a bluetooth dongle and I would (at LEAST) be able to listen to my tunes via the bluetooth dongle but that doesn't work either. Anyone have any other ideas about why this won't work?? It's no longer useful as a charger and now I can't get a bluetooth to work out of it. Is it just a useless (expensive) piece of tech junk now??

Sorry, no luck with a manual for the GT113, here is the link for the manual for it's replacement, the GT806; http://www.sharperimage.com/us/en/catalog/productdetails/sku__GT806 Check page 16 - hopefully the process is the same on your model for the alarm - other features are definitely different. Please ask again if this doesn't work. Hope this helps :)

While the radio POWER is off, press the "MODE" button 6 times Press "CH-" to decrease hours, "CH " to increase. Press "mode" again when hour is correct. Repeat for minute, month, date, year, etc.

Fried, not destroyed


The old Sharper Image went bankrupt several years ago. The new Sharper Image does not provide support for old Sharper Image products. You might be able to find a similar product available from the new Sharper Image.

Need code for radio in a 1998 VW Beetle. Have VIN# an radio serial #. Any help will be appreciated.


You will need to inquire from the VW Servive Center. The Dealer is one of the few people that can call in and get the radio code.

First check your Owner's Manual in case a prior owner wrote it down insed the manual. Also look for a sticker inside the spare tire wheel well. For some model years VW placed the code on a sticker and then put it in that location. My daughter has a 98 VW Beetle and we had to inquire of the Service Department. They didn't charge us to obtain the code, and it took less than 5 minutes to obtain.

Hi,

You can just buy a regular AC adapter in any store, just ask for a universal AC adapter to make sure it will fit. (you can try Radio Shack, Walmart etc.)

In a universal AC adapter there are multiple plugs and there's switch to set the volts, just find the right plug that fit you Alarm Clock and make sure you set it to 6V and that's it.

Hope it helps
