The TCL 200 was made specifically for folks who have trouble hearing their alarm, or seeing the time on the clock. This alarm clock comes with a wireless vibrating pad that slips under your pillow and vibrates to wake you up. It also has an extra loud ringer that goes up to 90 decibels (a motorcycle is about 100). That can be used with or without the vibration pad. The clock also speaks the time of day and the alarm time in one of five languages that you select. It can save you money by doing double duty as a phone amplifier, eliminating the need to purchase an expensive amplified phone. Simply connect the TCL 200 to your phone via a cable (included) to amplify the ring. The alarm clock comes with battery backup, and the charge on the vibrating pad lasts for 80 hours on standby. Retails for $100. To purchase, visit the company website at amplicomusa.com, click on "where to buy" and "online distributors."
