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 don't think you'll find anything worth owning. SD slots are fairly rare, and AA/AAA batteries are unheard of these days.

Sansa Clips and Fuzes have microSD slots.

I have several of each and their lithium batteries seem to hang in there over the years.

They are so cheap that outright replacement is only about twice the price of a replacement battery, not including labor.

You can always power them via an external connector if push comes to shove.

That's pretty good, considering that the replacement battery I bought for my E200 was only about $5, and almost twice the capacity of the original.

Wow you got a good deal. The last time I replaced an internal battery, it cost me about $15 delivered, and for twice that you can just get a refurb Fuze.

I don't see replacing the battery in a Fuze or a Clip to be very practical. But once you get a year or two out of a $30 player, so what?
