With the sustainable movement gaining traction daily, manufacturers are now shifting to eco-friendly versions of regular devices. Consider the battery-powered clock which we relied on for years has now been revamped into an ingenious device called the Eco-friendly Water Powered Clock. This is because most disposable batteries emit harmful metals such as mercury and lead into the environment causing soil contamination and water pollution. Battery waste can also endanger wildlife and is potentially hazardous to humans.
However, this portable water-powered clock displays the accurate time without damaging the environment. No batteries or cables are required here, just water. You don’t even need a calendar as the clock can switch modes to display dates. Plus, the large and vibrant LCD screen enables easy viewing from a distance. Use the mode switch button to view the current date. Below is the set button which is used to adjust your time or date.
The brightly colored exterior makes it a good desk piece for your office or your bedroom nightstand. You can even add your favorite cologne or fresh stems to the reservoir to showcase your creativity. After all, this product is the result of a creative ideation process.
The science behind it
Electricity is generated by the chemical reactions of water. So water works as the conducting agent that completes the electrical circuit for the clock. The back compartment of each clock contains the internal converter which extracts electrons from water (or other liquid) molecules. This then provides a steady stream of electrical current acting as a fuel cell to generate power to the clock.
How to use
To power up your clock, unscrew the base and fill it with tap water. The LCD screen dims when it’s time to replace the water. Simply pour out the old water and refill the reservoir with fresh water. Don’t panic as an embedded chip will retain your settings while you replace the water. Runs 5 weeks to 6 months before needing to change water.
Extremely handy for travel, trips, camping, and outdoor activities. Save on batteries and spur your kids’ curiosity about science by teaching them how this brilliant clock works.
Note: This product works like a regular clock with no alarm function. Check out the Digital Wooden Clock if you need an alarm clock.
