Travel alarm clocks can have varying
instructions, depending on the type of clock you are using. Here are
some tips for use that will apply to any alarm clock.
Changing the time
Travel alarm clocks will need to
have some sort of power source. Depending on the type of alarm clock,
it might be battery-powered or it might have a cord that needs to be
plugged in. Battery-powered alarm clocks can take mini watch batteries,
AAA batteries or sometimes AA batteries. Travel alarm clocks, because of
their tiny size, usually have the small batteries that need to be
bought from a watch store or a dollar store. Before you leave, make sure
you have a working power source and can turn it on.
After you reach your final
destination, power the alarm clock on. Now you'll need to set the time
and date correctly. Check a watch, cell phone or television to get the
exact time and locate the buttons or dials on your alarm clock. On some,
there will be a "time" or an "hour" button you need to press and hold
to activate the alarm time change. While you are holding it down, turn
the dial, press the hour button or press the (+) button until you notice
a time change. On others, simply pressing the hour or minute button
will let you change the time shown.
Setting alarm time
The AM/PM option is critical in
setting your alarm clock correctly. Make sure the LCD display on your
clock has a light beside the correct AM or PM setting, or look for the
letters AM or PM on the display. If you get this wrong, the alarm won't
go off in the morning!
Turn alarm on
To set the alarm time, look for a
button or a switch that says alarm. If there is a switch, move it to
the alarm setting. If it is a button, you'll need to hold it down until
the time starts flashing, signaling time to change the hours and minutes
to the desired alarm time, or hold it down while you press the hours
and minutes buttons to reach the alarm time you want.
Now double-check that your
regular and alarm times are correct by switching the switch back and
forth again, or by pressing the alarm/time buttons long enough to read
the time set. There should be a picture of a bell somewhere on your LCD
display showing that the alarm is set to "on." If there isn't, look for
the on/off alarm button and move it to the correct position.
The last step is finding the
alarm wake-up option. Not all travel alarm clocks have this option, but
if yours does there will be a switch or button that lets you choose to
wake up by a buzzer, the radio, a CD, or another device.
