Travelers, including business travelers, are starting to get on with their lives and are traveling again regularly. The TSA just released yesterday’s security checkpoint numbers and they were just 78,000 less than the same day in 2019 (pre-pandemic).

One of the most stressful things about flying is missing your flight – especially if it’s an early morning flight since it’s much easier to sleep through. And these days, it doesn’t matter what time your flight is, if you miss it, there’s not a lot of wiggle room for airlines to get you on the next flight since they’ve cut back frequencies and size of aircrafts. So, if you miss your flight, you could be stuck for a while.

One way to make sure you never sleep through your alarm again is by getting an alarm clock that vibrates. I got the Sonic Bomb for my dad since he’s legally deaf but he can’t see well enough now to use the app that goes with it. So, I ended up using it especially for the 6am Miami to L.A. flight I used to take every few weeks to go see him. I had to be up at 4:15am and when I didn’t use this vibrating alarm, I didn’t sleep well because I was afraid I would sleep through my phone’s alarm. And for the reasons stated above, I didn’t want to chance missing my flight or car service, which would cause a lot of aggravation, time, comfort and money.

The Sonic Bomb has:

-a loud dual alarm clock with snooze
-a battery backup and full range dimmer to control brightness
-clearly labeled alarm settings
-113db extra-loud alarm with adjustable tone and volume control
-a powerful 12-volt bed shaker
-5-level dimmer and test function to ensure your clock is setup properly
-a dual alarm, equipped with 12/24 hour time capability
-built-in red flashing alert lights and battery backup

    One must consciously turn off the alarm (I even remove the battery) after I experienced my portable alarm clock went off while actually boarding the plane at Heathrow (Fortunately before 9/11) And could not find it in a hurry because it was in my toilet bag! Rest of the travelers thought it was funny.
