Lexon Flip Premium Alarm Clock: A Stylishly Simple Way to Wake Up When Staying in Bed Isn't an Option Listen to this article

Back in the day (my day, anyway), everyone had an alarm clock or clock radio by their bedside. My dad’s was so loud it once woke me at 5:30 am one morning, but that’s another story. Now, with everyone having an alarm on their phone, watch, and running shoes for all I know, the call for alarm clocks would seem to be minimal. “Ha!” says Lexon design to us, with the Lexon Flip Premium Alarm Clock.

Lexon Flip Premium

Lexon already has Flip+ and Flip+ Travel Alarm Clocks — and you should watch this video because they’re kinda cool …

…  and they have upgraded it to feature an aluminum (aluminium if you’re in the UK) finish, an ultra-bright LCD display, and a sound sensor to wake up the screen automatically. This is a good feature if you’re the kind of person (like me), who prefers to turn the brightness all the way down because you prefer your room pitch dark during the night.

To turn on the clock, you just flip it over so the ON side (see the giant letters?) is visible. Turn it off? Well, I’ll leave that as an exercise for the student. The bottom line is, no fumbling around for the durn “off” button on your durn alarm/phone/watch/tennis shoes/whatever.

The Lexon Flip Premium also has a feature so that when you’re traveling, it locks itself so that the durn thing doesn’t start buzzing in the overhead compartment or the cargo hold, or the trunk of your Uber or whatever, while you’re heading to your destination.

The Lexon Flip Premium comes in four colors right now, with two additional ones being added later.

About the Author

Douglas Moran
Born in New England, as a Navy brat I traveled all over the NorthEast before settling in the California East Bay for 6 years, followed by planting deep roots in the city of my collegiate alma mater: The beach town of Santa Cruz, of all places. But Navy brats don’t usually have hometowns per se, so I get to pick mine and I choose the ‘Cruz. Make of that what you will. A nerd of long-standing, I took my first computer programming class on a Commodore Pet (2K of RAM!) in 1978 and have never looked back. I have built a solid, creditable career as a technical writer, information architect, and web site manager at companies large and small, from start-ups you’ve never heard of to places like Cisco, Hewlett-Packard, & IBM. And at the same time I’ve been putting forth my opinions every place I can get an audience, from the letters columns of Newsweek, various newspapers, and NPR, to online places like Salon.com and my own blogs. Not forgetting my lengthy side-career of posting tech reviews, news pieces, and opinions at the wonderful tech site Gear Diary. In my spare time I write fiction and publish it on Wattpad; learn Lindy Hop and West Coast Swing; take Tai Chi; and spend entirely too much time reading and watching science fiction.
