Hello,

I am looking for a new player which has replaceable batteries preferably AA or AAA and an sd slot. I currently have the Treckstor Ibeat extension which can use 8gb sd cards. Problem is that some of the buttons are becoming hard to use and the player dont sound to good with my new head phones philips she9850 (some buzzing and noise on changing tracks)

Anyone know of any such players? I have not been able to find any but have been considering getting a cheap mobile phone with mp3 playback but have no idea what they would sound like.

Thanks
Tom

I think you would do well with an embedded battery....today's lithium ion batteries are light years beyond nimh or nicad. I bought my zunehd used two years ago, use it daily, the battery still plays 24 hours between charges. The battery in todays devices will outlast your desire to keep said device...you'll be wanting a 'new toy' before it quits.

It's always the headphone socket that goes wrong here, long before I notice any battery problems. Though that may say more about me, or the lousy headphone sockets, than the quality of the batteries!

My current player is over 6 years old. headphone jack still ok. Adding Rockbox and a 32gb card keeps me happy with the capability. IT's one of the last models Sansa made with a replaceable (lithium) battery, otherwise by now it would be usable only on external power.

My kid has several players, but still prefers her oldest, because it uses AAA. THey are easily swapped out when they run down, and can be fully recharged in 30 minutes.

A little extra bulk CAN be a good thing. My experience with very small players (clip) was that you can forget it's in your pocket and it went through the laundry long before the battery aged out crying.gif
