    Want to make this clock run? Just add water!

    It's the Jamal Alarm Clock Water Power Digital Weather Station Time Humidity Large LCD Display and Temperature Measurement Environmental Technology for Indoor Office Home.

    I reported on the very first water clock, maybe some 20 or so years ago. But when I was searching around Amazon for unique gadgets I saw this one, which does some much more than the first one which just told the hour and the minute. These clocks need no power, no batteries, no sunlight. As long as it's filled with ordinary tap water, the water clock will run. One fill provides continuous power for around 2 weeks. This water powered clock also gives you up-to-date weather forecasts and displays the temperature and humidity. (Celsius or Fahrenheit) The large LCD display is easy to see, but it's best if you put a neutral background behind it as this is a see-thru clock. Other features include alarm clock with snooze, 12 or 24 hour hour setting, counts off seconds, and gives the date, month and year. The clock uses the chemical reaction between water and internal metal to produced the electrical energy to power the clock. The company says it works best with tap water rather than pure water because it's the electrolytes in the tap water that's needed for power. $13.99 as of 8/8/18 on Amazon. I think it makes a great gift for a gadget lover and it's under $14.00 as of 8/9/18.
