Gone back ? Were they broken ? If so, I hope they were still under warranty.

Funny you should say that. My old Sony Clock/Alarm/Radio, that is by my bedside, has provision for a 9V battery. That keeps the time correct during a power cut. I don't have a battery in there, because if I wake up and see the display flashing, I can calculate how long the power was off. Then have to go round the house checking various things, and resetting the many timers we have on different things.

Don't know why, but I always think of Slartibartfast in these sort of conversations.
