Five Minute Clock

Information

Five minute clock was designed and built by Keith Hoare during the pandemic. This is an internet based business located in the UK. We did have a number of pre-production clocks available, but they have all gone. Already there is a waiting list for completed clocks. Clocks before they are sent to customers run for seven days to ensure all is well.  Currently we can’t get ahead of our orders to have any ex stock, but hope to improve by the end of this year. The clock, while it uses 41 various types  of LEDs, is designed with advanced sacrificial multiplexing techniques to ensure the clock draws a tiny amount of current (40ma) and is ideal to use a wall socket with a USB outlet, or a USB charger plug. The clock can also run from a computer USB and while powered down the tiny battery in the clock will ensure it can run over a year while disconnected. The clock is a true twenty four hour alarm clock and displays the time to the second. The seconds are counted down by a short blink of each outer blue LED, the minutes between five, displayed by four white LEDs in the centre, along with an alarm on or off LED. Six levels of brightness are selectable with an option to switch the blue LEDs off leaving just the hands displayed. To own a Five Minute Clock will remain a talking point with all your guests for years to come, and is truly unique.
