I am looking for a lightweight, portable alarm clock for travel? This is my feature list:

  • Preferably analogue display, with florescent hands.
  • No ticking noise!
  • Alarm with snooze.
  • Alarm does not stop beeping after N minutes or X snooze cycles.
  • Lightweight and compact for storage, and the alarm can be disabled so it won't beep in the bag.

Something along the lines of the Casio TQ-140 would be great, but I'm not sure if it ticks and it has no snooze. I would use the alarm on my phone, but it is known to be buggy.

  • Relevant question, but posed as an opinion poll, please reformat. Close voting as opinion-based.

    My iPhone alarm has served me well in many countries since I bought it. Before that I used Android without difficulty. There might be reasons to use a different alarm clock but I think "buggy" is not really one of them. Fix the bug instead!

  • @GayotFow: Thank you, I've reformated the question slightly to not give the appearance of a poll. The format is bassed on this question.

  • @dotancohen, still borderline, but nobody else has closed voted, so you might be good.

  • Three close votes so far. I've tried to remove the opinion-basedness from the question title and body.

Thanks to mkennedy's comment on the question, I found this clock on Ebay and others like it. The key phrase, as mentioned in her comment, is:

silent sweep hand

Combining that key phrase with snooze led to many options. Unfortunately, I have no way of checking if any of the alarms do not stop beeping after N minutes or X snooze cycles before purchase. If I find such a clock then I'll update this answer and accept it. In the meantime, I hope that this hint helps other travelers with their clocks!
