Amplicom TCL100 Amplified Analog Alarm Clock
Amplicom's TCL 100 is similar in form and function to the Sonic Alert. Both companies manufacture a long line of products for the hard of hearing, with alarm clocks that offer loud decibel levels and vibrating pillow shaker units. While the Sonic Bomb is 113 db, the TCL 100 gets up to 90, and both come with wireless vibrating shakers that are slim enough to fit by the headboard. But the TCL 100 does things a bit differently beyond the obvious comparisons; the first thing you notice is that this clock is analog. No digital readout here. Amplicom has also added a built-in telephone signaler to their clock, which can alert you to incoming phone calls and act as a substitute for a telephone ring that is too low to be detected by the hearing impaired. The TCL 100 is even smaller than the Sonic Bomb, so you can fit it in any travel bag and take it along with you on long trips. Five different alarm patterns let you customize the alarm how you like it and you can set the alarm in three ways just an alarm, just the vibration, or both together.
