Best With Temperature & Humidity: Wooden Digital Alarm Clock with Wireless Charging

Most alarm clocks with wireless charging are rather simple in design—basically just the time display. If you also want to monitor the temperature and relative humidity in a room, this would be our choice: JALL’s Wooden Digital Alarm Clock. We liked the small footprint and how easy it is to use. Plus the wood-like design (three colors) gives this clock a classy look, in our opinion.

What We Liked

• Small footprint.

• Large numbers are easy to read.

• Easy to see day or night.

• Charging works well.

• Multiple brightness settings.

• Shows temperature and humidity.

What Needs Work

• Heat from phone when charging can bias the temperature reading.

• Too bright for some folks, even in dimmest setting. If you are super sensitive to this issue, consider the next pick, which has a dimmer setting that can range from 1% to 100%. 

Best Adjustable Brightness: MOSITO Digital Wooden Alarm Clock with Wireless Charging

Most alarm clocks have a limited number of brightness settings—three is common. But in our testing, we always find even the dimmest setting to be too bright. That’s why we liked this clock by Mosito—it enables you to fine-tune the brightness, between 1% and 100%. That is super helpful. And the clock itself looks quite impressive, with its wood design.

What We Liked

 Temperature display.

• Adjustable brightness.

• Wood design.

• Easy to read.

• Easy to set up.

• Accurate.

What Needs Work

• Temperature reading can be thrown off when charging a phone. Unfortunately, we found this to be the case with most alarm clocks that have a temperature read-out. The heat from a phone that is charging can bias the temperature, to a small degree.

Best Clock with Light: COLSUR Digital Alarm Clock with Wireless Charging

This clock came recommended by several of our readers, who loved the simple design and built-in nightlight. Excellent design and super easy to use.

What We Liked

• Large numbers are easy to read.

• Nightlight function has three color temperatures.

• Fine-tuned dimming lets you set the dimmer between 5% and 100%.

• Charger works well.

• Memory function in case of power outage.

What Needs Work

• Setting the clock could be easier.

• A bit pricey.

Best Lower Profile: Peakeep Wireless Charging Alarm Clock

Most alarm clocks with wireless charging have the phone sit on top of the clock. That’s nice, but it is easy to bump the phone and stop the charging. We tried out this clock and liked its design—the phone sites behind the clock. Yes, it takes up a bit more space, but we liked the overall lower profile. And notice the buttons to set the functions are on the front, which we found easier to use.

What We Liked

• Dimmer between 1% and 100%.

• Easy to read.

• Second USB port to charge a smart watch.

• Setting buttons are on front.

What Needs Work

• Light to indicate charging is not dimmable.

• Only one alarm setting.

How We Pick Products To Recommend

We often turn to our readers (3 million strong!) to find products to recommend. We ask our parent readers for their favorites and consider their real-world experiences in our recommendations.

When we test a product, we always purchase it with our own monies. We do not take free samples, as we believe that compromises our independence.

We also fact check manufacturer information with our own measurements. If a maker claims a product weighs X pounds, we will weigh it to make sure. If the battery life is supposed to be six hours, we will see how it stands up in the real world.

In some cases, we will do interviews with experts in the field to get additional feedback on products.

To get hands-on time with products, we regularly meet one-on-one with gear companies and even tour manufacturing facilities. (When we do this, we pay our own travel expenses).

Why Trust Us

We’ve been rating and reviewing products for the home and families since 1994. We do extensive research, evaluating products with an eye toward quality, ease of use and affordability.

We make our living from affiliate commissions, but we always recommend what we think are the best bets for our readers (not the ones that are the most expensive). We are always looking for products that offer the best bang for the buck.

Our independence is a key reason why we have been doing this so long. As we mentioned above, when we purchase a product for hands-on testing, we do so with our own money.

Here’s another key point: we don’t take money from the brands we review. No free samples, no sponsors, no “partnerships.” Our work is 100% reader-supported!
