    Hi

    Im heading off to Thailand, definitely need to take music with me... but whats the best way of charging? would anyone advise getting a cheap MP3 player which takes AA batteries, or does something exist that takes AA batteries which you can plug into your music player which then charges it up?

    Dont really want to rely on computers to charge an iPod so am looking for alternative power source

    thanks xx

    Hi. I bought an AC adapter from Apple. Not cheap, but as small as it gets. I use it with the cable I would otherwise use to connect to my laptop. Charges from the outlet. Very handy.

    ssaint, you can fairly easily pick up a cheap usb plug, which as the name suggests looks like a normal plug but has a usb socket on the bottom, you plug your normal ipod cable into it and it should charge it quite happily.

    Should be dead cheap around $6 something like that

    Link to Amazon UK

    this is an example
