Can anyone tell me if this mp3 player would require me to purchase AA batterys when I want to use it. Or is it possible to plug this MP3 into a socket somehow and let it charge up?

Many Thanks

That sounds quite a good deal

I also found this one at dixons

It probably doesn't but can anyone tell me if its USB recharable. There seems to be hardly any that are from what I can tell from.

Why the attraction to Dixons/Currys?
There are better places to get stuff!

If USB charging is a must, think about a Sony ...

Lookee here:

Or, if that URL breaks, click here

But is looks like it's *only* chargeable via the USB port.

I don't know much about MP3 players because i have never had one, but 512MB might not be that big a memory, do you know how many songs (roughly) that is.
no it doesnt recharge at all

i got the same mp3 player as a free gift when i got sky installed several months ago and it is a terrible mp3 player. earphones are terrible and even when i got a good set at nearly 35 the sound quality was a disgrace.

my advice, stay away from packard bell mp3 players.
