          I submitted a prior review on this product, giving it an extremely bad grade. I have since then spoken with customer service and they gave me the answer to my problem. When refilling the clock, one needs to make sure the water goes into both compartments. I was unaware there were two compartments. My clock is now working fine and I am sure I will be as pleased with it in future as I was for the first two weeks after I received it.

            Interesting science project because of the use of water to provide power. Nice to have the temperature displayed along with the time.

            It Actually Works!

                  Ordered three. Could not get one to work, so it was refunded. After fiddling around with the other two (instructions don't mention that a small amount of water has to be in contact with the metal piece in the second chamber), they powered up and work fine, not gaining or losing time. I had hoped to use one outside in my garden, but I'm guessing the large swing in temperature during the day foiled that. However, I still really like the little clock. It is quite a conversation piece and useful where there is no electrical outlet for a standard clock. Quite ecological, producing no spent batteries to have to dispose of in hazardous waste.

                    Best Uses

                      I was really looking forward to using this clock instead of my electric clock. It was working well for the first two weeks but since then I have not been able to get it to work again. I followed the instructions to change the water etc but I cannot get a screen display. Sometimes and very intermittently, something will begin to appear only to disappear once again. So disappointed.

                          I saw this little clock in the catalog and thought, "There is NO way! A clock that runs on nothing but water?!? Yeah, right!!!" But I also thought that it would be a pretty nifty gift if it did!!! So I ordered one for my husband and myself and 10 more of them for gifts (Next Christmas)!!! The order came, (sooner than I expected it to! :)), I took one out of the box, took it to the sink and filled it with water, and it started!!! It has been a month now since I put water in it, have done nothing to it and it is still running - and keeping perfect time!!!! I still can't believe that this thing actually runs! I know, it's the electrons and all that stuff that makes water water, but I am still amazed that these things actually keep time and do so accurately!! It also has a calendar and an alarm!!! I just love this thing! If you want a gift that is unique and intriguing, I would highly recommend this clock!!

                                  How can a clock run on water? I still don't quite understand, but the idea intrigued me. I bought two to give to my youngest grandsons at Christmas time. The clocks arrived securely packaged, one with, one without instructions. Fortunately, the recipients are brothers, so sharing of the info was not a problem. The clocks work, giving time and (indoor) temperature. Judging from their reactions, the boys liked the see-through clocks and were as amazed as I was. I got several questions like: where did you find that??? In my opinion: money well-spent.
