Resumee

The Light Alarm Clock Coulax not only impresses with its special design (colour: wood grain) but also offers many useful functions. Even if the alarm clock has not high quality as other alarm clocks, it works perfectly fine. The light at sunrise is also pleasant and not too bright, and the selection of alarm tones is varied. The sound quality is ok. It could have been better but the price, therefore, is ok. All in all, it can be said that the light alarm clock is highly recommended as an entry-level model.

Pro

  • Variety of LED-light functions, for example, useful for as decoration light
  • Multiple functions

  • No high-quality workmanship

This alarm clock has a good light and wake-up function whereas the quality, in general, is not that good.

The product

COULAX Holz Wake Up Light
COULAX Wooden Wake Up Light

The Wake-up light alarm clock by Coulax light alarm clock comes in a small package which is labelled with the most important functions of the product (but only in English). The light alarm clock advertises with its interesting wooden design. However, the material is not real wood but only plastic, which is why the alarm clock doesn't look so well made on closer inspection. The alarm clock has a display on which you can operate the keys with the touch screen function. Further keys are located at the upper edge of the alarm clock.

The light alarm clock is designed very clearly for the use. Nevertheless, the alarm clock cannot be set without a manual, i.e. compared to other alarm clocks, it is not so intuitive to use. The operating instructions are clearly and comprehensibly written.

To be able to use the light alarm clock, you should first set the time. When the alarm clock is connected to the power source, the numbers flash and the "+" and "-" buttons can be used to set the correct time. Press the "Clock" button to confirm the time.

With the "Black-and-White" button the alarm clock offers the function to adjust the light intensity of the LED display (low-high-off). You can switch off the alarm completely at night so that the LED lights do not disturb you.

The sunrise light can also be adjusted individually with the "SUN" button (level from 1-10). If you press the "Sun" button twice, the colour setting is activated. If the "Sun" button is pressed a third time, the light is switched off completely.

To set the alarm time (2 alarm times are possible), press the "alarm" button and set the time. To select an alarm tone, press the "Music" button at the top of the alarm. Here you can choose between 6 alarm tones. The 7th sound is the radio. The volume can also be adjusted simultaneously (00-15).

Once you have set the appropriate time and alarm tone, the sunrise function is activated 30 minutes before the actual alarm time. The Coulax light alarm clock wakes you up gently because the light is not too bright. Step by step the room slowly gets brighter. When you hear the alarm tone, you can either decide to press the snooze button or simply keep the alarm running and the alarm tone will stop after 2 minutes.

The sound quality is satisfactory. For the fact that the price of the alarm clock is in the middle range compared to other models, it is ok. The radio also works well.

Tips:

It is best to place the light alarm clock 40-50 cm away from the bed, for example on a bedside table. The light alarm clock can also be used as a bedside lamp.
