I love this wall clock because the display is big enough to be seen across the kitchen, and because it doesn’t need an outlet. However, it is the 3rd clock I have purchased—one time was my fault, since it fell off an unstable mounting device and onto the hot stove. The second one worked for almost 11 months, and then after charging this last time, only displayed if it was touched (obviously not a convenient kitchen clock). This one seems to be working okay, and it came with better instructions (the second one came with a slip of paper with directions for charging but little else). I am hoping this one holds up, because it really is a perfect clock for our space, and the design is simple and elegant.
