GEAR4 has launched the newest addition to their BlackBox range of audio accessories, the BlackBox 24/7, an alarm clock radio for iPod and other MP3 players.

The BlackBox 24/7 is an alarm clock, FM radio and iPod speaker all in one, featuring a 12-hour clock with 2 programmable alarms, so you don’t have to worry about re-setting the alarm for your weekend lie-ins.

The alarms can be set to wake you up to your iPod music, the radio or an alarm buzzer, each of which are accompanied by an ambient blue lamp.

The speaker's twin 2.75-inch drivers provide 16W total output for the inbuilt FM radio, your iPod or other music player (via line in). Your iPod will also charge while playing as an added bonus.

BlackBox 24/7 will be available from all major high street and online retailers for £50.
