Re: HELP Please - I need an Ipod/MP3 that will run on AA or AAA batteries??????

Hello MommieDuck,

After a bit of research, I’ve found that there are fewer and fewer mp3 players that use replaceable batteries.  Most have internal rechargeable batteries these days.

One unit that might meet your needs is the SanDisk SlotMusic Player.  This relatively new device plays music albums from microSD cards.  It doesn’t offer internal storage though, so it may not be the kind of player you’re looking for.  You can find a few different models by searching for “slotmusic” on BestBuy.com.

If you’re thinking about AAA-powered mp3 products because you’ll be travelling and won’t have a means to charge, you might consider a solar-powered charger for USB devices. All you need then to recharge your mp3 player is the sun, even when you’re far from civilization.  Search for “solar” on BestBuy.com for our offerings in this category.

I hope this helps!

Hey there!

 

I have had luck with the Sandisk Shaker for my two youngest daughters.  It takes 1 AAA battery, and seems to work well.  At the economical price of 39.99 I figured I couldn't go wrong!

 

I hope this helps some!

Hi,

 

I have a Creative zen nano. It runs on a single AA battery, and I have been very happy with it.

 

Good Luck

The Sandisk Shaker looks a little dorky and un-attractive of a shape if you ask me.
