Now, I know what you’re thinking. “My cell phone is my alarm clock.” That was it, right? Well, you’re right. Most people’s cell phones act as alarm clocks as well as your internet, daily planner, stereo system, camera, video camera, TV, video games, etc. This doesn’t mean that a digital alarm clock on your nightstand is a thing of the past. In fact, it’s actually better than your phone in many ways. That’s the case with this Naxa alarm clock with Qi wireless charging mat. It’s the perfect thing for any modern home; but, before I get into that, let’s talk about…
…The Problem with Cell Phones as Alarm Clocks
Most of today’s cell phones have an alarm clock function. It’s very easy to set the alarm clock function on your cell phone and even choose the tone and volume of your alarm. Many cell phones even let you add a buzzing function to your alarm. When you set your phone on the nightstand next to your head, you’re practically guaranteed to wake up when your device starts chirping and vibrating near your ear.
There’s only one way you can rely on your phone as your alarm clock, and that’s it your phone is fully charged. Again, this might sound like an easy fix. Just charge your phone every day, right? Well, it’s not always that simple. There are many times when I neglect or forget to charge my phone throughout the day. I don’t even realize it until I try to set my alarm and notice that my charge bar is in the red. This means I have to:
Get out of bed to get the charge cord from the living room
Plug it into the outlet behind my bed
Run the cord up to my nightstand
Plug it into my phone
Set my alarm
To me, this annoying routine is the last thing I want to do when I’m dead tired at the end of a long day.
More Problems with Using Your Cell Phone as a Clock
Do you have a robust social media life? I do. And with friends in different time zones, I get responses to my posts at all hours of the night. This makes my cell phone buzz and vibrate on the nightstand, right next to my head. Look, I’m sure there are settings you can use to make sure this doesn’t happen, but I don’t want to have to turn those on every night then turn them off each morning. Half the time, I forget to turn my cell phone’s volume up after work and I end up missing important calls.
My snooze button is another problem I have with my cell phone. I’m a notorious snooze button surfer because I foolishly believe that those extra five or 10 minutes of sleep will make a difference. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve dropped my phone or accidentally knocked it to the floor as I’ve fumbled around for it in the dark. An alarm clock would put an end to that problem, which brings me to this…

It has a large, green LCD display, FM radio, and other features common to alarm clocks. What makes it unique is the Qi charging mat on top of it.

(Charge cords are sold separately.) This combination helps you get up in the morning to a full-charged phone without the problems that come with using your phone as an alarm clock.
