The clock next to my bed died a few weeks ago, after more than 20 years of service. I bought this one from STP because I liked the way it looked and it was partially solar powered. It was also very cheap. I have now used it for a week, and I have to admit that I like it. The light is not on constant...

I have never written a one star review on STP before. I usually love the products I buy, but this one, the STP STRATEGIC SOURCING DEPARTMENT should have never offered on the STP website. One, you must push a button to illuminate the display at night,,,, BUT, wait for it, there is no Button. Yes the functionality is NOT there. Yes, the directions say its there, but not there. But who wants a clock you can't see at night??? Its cheap, its worse than cheap, its utter garbage. Don't waist your time. I'd return it, but why, it costs as much as the return shipping fee. $6.95. Better to go to "other" websites to buy this where there is not such a steep return penalty. Last time I buy electronics on STP. Love their gear, their clothes, but never again will I buy electronics on STP.

The clock/temp work fine and have large digits. However, the backlight function does not work on this unit, so I can only read time/temp in a bright room. Also, the alarm is so quiet that I can't use it as a timer, let along as an alarm clock. It would never wake me.
It's a surprising disappointment, because I have a La Crosse Weather Station that has been working perfectly for over 4 years.

I have had this clock since 2010. I have never replace the batteries. I checked the batteries with a volt meter they were stronger than new after 4 years! I live in a basement so the clock doesn't get strong light to charge the batteries. Keeps good time, and temp.
