The Light Alarm Clock by Medisana is a solid light alarm clock that does what it's supposed to do. However, there are clear differences to other alarm clocks in terms of quality, such as the somewhat complicated setting options or the only satisfying sound quality of radio and natural sounds. Despite these shortcomings, this light alarm clock proved to be very reliable regarding waking up.
The Light alarm clock by Medisana comes in a small package that has the most important details about the product written on the outside. The light alarm clock has the shape of a moon/sun and is very wide in its depth but is easy to carry. At first glance, the alarm clock looks quite cheap compared to other light alarm clocks. The display is located at the bottom of the alarm clock with a total of 4 buttons (Set button, Mode button, Light button, Off button, -+ button). The Snooze button is a touch button at the top of the alarm clock. The material is plastic. The loudspeakers and two connectors for the antenna cable and the power cord are located on the back of the clock.
The scope of delivery includes:
- Light alarm clock
- Operation instruction

The time must be set manually, i.e. this alarm clock does not have a radio-controlled clock. To set the time, first press and hold the "Set" button and enter the digits using the "- and +" buttons. To be able to enter the alarm time, you must perform exactly the same procedure. There are two alarm times. To be able to set the second alarm, you, unfortunately, have to set the 1st alarm time which is a bit of a struggle.
The alarm clock is operated with a mains adapter but the device itself also contains a rechargeable backup battery, which serves as a backup power supply in the event of a power failure.
Fixed sunrise simulation time of 30 minutes, i.e. this setting cannot be changed.
The alarm clock offers the possibility to be woken up without a sound, i.e. only with light.
The sound of the alarm tones is not so good compared to other products. Slight noise can always be heard and there are no clear tones.
During testing, it was also noticeable that if you set the radio as the alarm tone, the alarm goes off at full volume before it adjusts itself to the set volume.
