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 really don't understand why any good portable players are not made to use AA/AAA batteries. Quality NI-MH batteries have good capacity now and are cheap and easy to replace plus you can carry them with you.

I know Lithium batteries are better but they also have some potential hazards. Maybe the device manufactures want you to buy a new one every time the battery degrades/fails?

Anyway thanks for the suggestions I will continue to search.

Unfortunately, I expect that players are not made for AA/AAA batteries because of their bulk. Such a player would be twice or three times as thick as a player with an embedded battery.
