An alarm clock radio with usb is exactly what's needed to get up on time in the morning. I tried to find the best product available in the market which would charge my phone and wake me up to my favorite music at the right time in the morning.
With the change in technology, they got a bit outdated and everyone started using mobile phones for everything. This new feature of being able to charge your phone brings the spotlight again. You can just plug in your phone when you go to sleep and find your phone at 100% battery level in the morning. No need to reach for the power socket charger. Another advantage is you do not have to pick your phone, unlock the display and see the time. Just one glance is enough to see the time.
The first criterion was to have port for charging mobile phone. I found that some devices have two ports. Second criterion was the feature to play any music station in the morning.
