alarm clocks

am i right in thinking if they have a battery back up in them they are supposed to work through a powercut? or do i have that wrong?

basically i had a powercut after i went to bed (so anytime after 6am) and the alarm clock obviously didn't go off as it was saying it was 7am when it was 2pm (the time i woke up)

i think i'll have to start using my phone as i was technically supposed to be on a course at 9am in the centre of town

any ideas?

    i dont have problems with alarms going of, its my ability to turn them off in my sleep that worries me, i need a hardcore alarm clock, one that would pour vinager in my eyes when set off, cant see anything to that effect on the market

    Heh heh, here's a link of the world's most annoying alarm clocks.

    http://www.uberreview.c...nnoying-alarm-clocks.htm

    The first one fecks off toward the ceiling with each press, meaning you have to reach higher and higher to activate the snooze function.

    The second one goes off and fires four jigsaw pieces in the air. Only shuts up when you get the four bits back in the right order. I'd give that a day in my house before it met a shoe.

    The eighth one legs it around the room when it goes off.

    Quality link.

    PS - can't see any that pour vinegar yet - you might have a marketable idea.

    i wonder if the drill sergeant clock took its phrases from full metal jacket 'you better get up, or i will pull out your eyeballs and skull....'

    the one that flies around looks promising

    Damn you.

    There were supposed to be three pages of 'try using your phone' before you cottoned on.

    I always set 2 alarm clocks - one is on the mains and one is on a battery.   Problem sorted
