We've got a cheap one that's a cube and has no light unless you tap it and then it lights up, hang on

Lol I have this problem I use a nappy to cover mine!

snickersnack Mon 28-Jul-08 21:32:01

No, but am hoping someone can help as I have a similar desire...

I have a roberts one where you can turn the backlight off - hang on I will look and see if I can find it somewhere online.

TrinityRhino Mon 28-Jul-08 21:34:37

goodness, I thought I was weird and noone would get what I meant lol

stealthsquiggle Mon 28-Jul-08 21:38:46

It's like this one but not a DAB radio (and therefore a lot cheaper!)

WideWebWitch Mon 28-Jul-08 21:47:57

Here is the one we've got, the Aurora colour changing clock there's no light unless you touch it or the alarm goes off. No noise either and cheap.

TrinityRhino Mon 28-Jul-08 21:53:56

hhhm not sure I like the colour changing one
is it only battery operated??

and john lewis!!, wow they are lovely but no chance

TrinityRhino Mon 28-Jul-08 21:54:28

I mean

thanks for looking an posting links
sorry blush
didn't mean to sound rude

WideWebWitch Mon 28-Jul-08 21:56:08

No, ours is plugged in, no batteries. It doesn't change colour unless you put it on that setting. It is no colour normally!

But if you don't like it I'mn not remotely offended, not at all!

NappiesNoMore Mon 28-Jul-08 21:57:18

i like it... not that i use a clock usually, what with having 3 live alarm clocks disguised as children

morningpaper Mon 28-Jul-08 21:58:39


I also cover mine with books

sort of defeats the object though

morningpaper Mon 28-Jul-08 21:59:20

I've got that cheap cube one that you tap, but it keeps RUBBISH time

NappiesNoMore Mon 28-Jul-08 22:00:30

<goes off colour changey one>

ho hum

TrinityRhino Mon 28-Jul-08 22:02:16

oh morningpaper!

I was starting to like it if I didn't HAVE to have it changing colour oall the time and could plug it in....but I want it to stay at approx. the right time lol

WideWebWitch Mon 28-Jul-08 22:04:01

Now you mention it you're right MP. Most bewildering esp with the split second morning timing in our house
had forgotten that this am the kitchen clock said 6.40 and upstairs one said 6.45 and there's nfw it took me five minutes to walk upstairs

morningpaper Mon 28-Jul-08 22:04:10

yeah I kept having to change it

now I've given up and just let the children play with it

so have Street-Light Clock covered in books instead

Lio Mon 28-Jul-08 22:05:17

Personal shopper in the Guardian did these, including one that dims, about halfway through the column, from John Lewis. here

morningpaper Mon 28-Jul-08 22:07:49

Hmmm she is a fan of projection clocks, but as a speccy four-eyed mole I don't see how that would help me?

morningpaper Mon 28-Jul-08 22:08:28

And I don't like green LED - too bright

It's got to be red

midnightexpress Mon 28-Jul-08 22:12:28

Mine's great - bought it specifically for its lack of brightness, as I was doing lots of night-time bfing at the time and didn't want to have Blackpool Illuminations for company. It's a DAB one called a Pure Siesta. Hang on, I'll see if I can get a link. I got it in the John Lewis sale for about 40 quid.
