.wickedpicker('time') get the current time inside of the input element that has a wickedpicker attached to it.

var timepicker = $('.timepicker').wickedpicker();

If multiple input fields have the same class and instantiate a wickedpicker then pass the index of the timepicker you'd like to select.

In your HTML

<input type="text" id="timepicker-one" name="timepicker-one" class="timepicker"/>
<input type="text" id="timepicker-two" name="timepicker-two" class="timepicker"/>

In your JavaScript

var timepickers = $('.timepicker').wickedpicker();
console.log(timepickers.wickedpicker('time', 1));
//JS console: time of timepicker-two

The Wickedpicker opens when the bound input is clicked, or focused on (try tabbing), and it can be closed by either clicking the X, by clicking outside of it, or by pressing esc. The arrows icons increase or decrease their associated time values or toggle the meridiem. The values can also be changed using the up and down keys when focused on. To move to the next value just press the left or right arrow key.
