Wanted: Mains plugged portable CD player / MP3 player £10.00

Basically, I have a great grandmother who loves books but is slowly going blind... Blind enough not to be able to read properly anyway. So, the solution is clearly audio books.

However, we need something VERY simple to use, that can plug into the mains rather than having to worry about PC charging or batteries, for her to use to listen to them. My first thought was an old MP3 CD player, but a normal mp3 player would work too. A mini stereo would be too big to place where she likes to sit.

I'm happy to pay up to a tenner including postage for a solution. If it's ideal and no-one else can help, I might even pay a touch more.
Shipping/Payment:
We're based in central london, so ideally either pick-up locally or post it to me.

I'd pay £15 with the mains adapter. Don't feel confident buying without one and hunting myself though.




Sorry, too small. Remember, it has to be something someone in their 80's with fading vision can easily use. :)

You just need something like this. Put this in the ebay search bar: 140296144249
That's just one of the first ones i found, you could probaly get one cheaper than that.

most portable cd players have a DC input jack in them, all you need to do in cases like that is pop down your electronics store and pick up a £2.99 multi pinned, multi volt adapter.

If she is registered blind she can join the RNIB Talking Books Service.

£76 a year (quarterly payments), includes the loan of a very robust player (I think these are around £200 to buy, but leasing from RNIB means you get it repaired, new batteries, upgrades when necessary....) and access to over 15 000 books* - free delivery.

It has made a huge difference to my Mum's quality of life.
Calibre Audio Library also supply books.

*The books come on discs - each can hold a recording of up to 24 hours.
