Battery to Electric?

AA Battery to Electric Converter

AA Battery to Electric Converter

The majority of standard clock movements take one AA battery.  If you are tired of changing the clock batteries, we have a solution for you.  Our new battery converter will convert any item using one AA battery to electric power and will also be a battery back up in the event of a power outage.

In the past, when we converted a clock movement from AC to DC power, the conversion was not reversible.  Now you can choose if you want a battery or electric clock and can switch back and forth if you like.

This innovative patent–pending converter is achieved by an external AC to DC power supply which operates the clock and provides a trickle charge to it’s internal Ni-Cad battery.  The cord is 6 feet long allowing many placements for your clock and is UL and CE certified.  All you do insert the battery adapter unit into the battery compartment observing proper +/- polarity, then insert the power supply plug into desired outlet.  After five hours the internal Ni-Cad battery is fully charged.  If the power goes out the battery adapter will provide uninterrupted power for up to 3 weeks!  Say goodbye to resetting the time on your electric clocks if the power goes out.

    Unless all your electric clocks have backup power, you’ll still need to reset them.

    You still need to reset your clock for daylite saving time.

      Yes, all standard quartz movements need to be reset for DST. This converter does not auto-set or reset standard movements for DST. It simply provides power to movements and helps avoid resetting the time if the power goes out.

    What a cool product. I have a clock that eats batteries. I will be getting one of these, and will never have to worry about the battery for that clock again.

    What if the item I am powering takes more than one AA battery? Will I need multiple battery converters?

      Hi John, yes – if the item you are powering takes more than one AA battery you will need multiple battery converters.

        Will the battery converter work on “C” cell battery?

        Hi Raymond,

        Yes, our C cell battery converter converts a C cell battery to electric. It’s item number 99010 on at Klockit.com. Hope that helps!

    My clock takes 5 AA. Do you have a converter that will do 5 and all go to 1 plug? I would not want 5 cords running down my wall from the clock.

      Hi Wendy, thanks for reaching out. Our AA battery converter takes a single battery, and would not work for what you mentioned. Sorry!
