Blast from the past (literally): Screaming Meanie 220 — 'World's loudest alarm clock'


I promise you, you won't sleep through this one if you have a pulse.

Unfortunately for others nearby, neither will they.

No matter.

When you absolutely, positively have to get up, this is the alarm clock you want on your bedside table.

I featured it back in 2004 and again in 2005 and it's time to freshen things up with another post, which incidentally finds my crack research team having located it for 25% less than it cost back in 2004.

From the website:

    Screaming Meanie 220 Alarm Clock/Timer

    Its called the Screaming Meanie 220 because it is an extremely loud alarm until you turn it off. Created for long-haul truck drivers, the Screaming Meanie 220 is designed to get you out of bed, no matter what. We also find it useful in a noisy situation where an alarm must be heard, or for anyone with hearing loss who is looking for a very loud alarm.

    The Screaming Meanie 220 Alarm Clock and Timer has three volume settings, timer and alarm clock, and the homing signal can be heard up to one mile away in an emergency. The Screaming Meanie 220's convenient one-button battery test and indiglo display create a very unique and useful product.

    Pictured below, the back of the device.



    • Alarm Clock and Timer

    • Alarm activates for 10 seconds every 5 minutes

    • Homing signal can be heard up to 1 mile in emergency situations

    • Convenient one button battery test

    • Indiglo display light

    • Belt Clip


    • Uses one 9V battery (not included)

    • Three alarm settings: Low, Medium, High

    • Low is 70dB — Like a regular alarm clock

    • Medium is 95dB — A very loud alarm that will wake most heavy sleepers

    • High is 120dB — This is an extremely loud alarm that will wake the heaviest sleepers



Also highly recommended for musicians, to wit: "The Screaming Meanie will make sure to wake up exhausted musicians the next morning so they can get to their regular jobs."

Transparent Green: $28.95.

Black: $35.97.
