    Does is use a plug only or can you use a battery? Where I want it, there is no outlet. Also does it glow all the time? I hate lights on when I sleep, I need a clock that doesn't glow always.

    • A. It runs only on batteries. It takes two "AAA" batteries; I recommend alkaline batteries. To save the batteries, the display light goes out 5 seconds after you touch the button to view the time. The display is visible at all times when the room lights are on.

    • A. The clock is battery operated. It does not light up unless the silver snooze bar is pressed (it will stay lit just long enough to view the time).

    • A. It uses two AA batteries in its back. There is no connection to any other power source. Its back light is "on demand" only--does not stay on. You tap the base (also used as snooze button) and it will come on for a few seconds and then extinguish.

    • A. This is not a plug-in clock. It runs on 2 AAA batteries...perfect for travel. However, I'm not sure if the time will accurately change on its own outside of the U.S. Perhaps someone else can answer that question.

    • A. There is no external power connection at all. It only uses two internal AAA batteries. You should be OK anywhere you can find batteries! I'm unsure about the atomic function, however, but, you can always set its time manually.

    • A. No external power required, it runs on 2 AAA batteries. I am wondering if S. America might not get the 'time' signal it needs to synchronize daily.

    Bought this alarm in a local Walmart store yesterday, and it does everything as advertised. Here are my gripes: 1. The LCD display can only be viewed from above. At an angle like I'm viewing my laptop as I type right now. If you look at the display from eye level or below, you can't read it. For example, if you place the alarm on a tall dresser so that it is higher than your pillow, you won't be able to make out the numerals on the display. 2. The alarm sound isn't very loud. 3. It is inconvenient to program the alarm when you have to look at the display on the front to set it, but all the controls are out of sight on the back. Apart from these comments, the clock works well, and is a terrific bargain. It easily receives WWVB's synchronizing radio signal from Fort Collins, Colorado here in Eastern Massachusetts, more than 1,700 miles away.

    For those of us who would like to know the EXACT time, this is a must! Whenever the power goes out or someone moves a clock-radio, etc., I want to make sure that when these time pieces are reset they are "right-on" and this does an amazing job. (+or- a fraction of a second) The built-in thermometer is a nice touch too in case you might wonder what the temperature is in some remote location of your house. The alarm is a little loud and annoying, but isn't that what alarms are supposed to be, I didn't buy it for this function anyway.

    Great battery operated atomic alarm clock!

    This is a great battery operated atomic alarm clock. Love the compact size and the price. Also like the fact that the clock lights up only when the silver snooze bar is pressed (good fact to know for people who have trouble sleeping). The only problem is that it's too easy to accidentally change the time zone when fumbling around with the back buttons or grabbing the clock from the top rather than the base!

    Perfect (for me). Good size. On-demand Back light (Don't like it glaring in my face while sleeping#. Atomic means I do not have to fiddle w/buttons. Temperature is a perk as is calendar. Small foot print & would work well for travel if necessary. Good value #10.88 in my store, today#. I would prefer it to use AA instead of AAA batteries #life#. Atomic receiver does not stay on all the time #save battery# but verifies a few times a day #reinforce accuracy).

    Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

    Had to call support to find out how to get ruight time zone (Showed PST instead of CST.). All you have to do is reinsert batteries and hold down "wave down" then follow instructions to set correct time zone, time, etc.
