Just picked up a wireless FM transmitter with a car cigarette lighter adapter in Home Bargains for £1.99.

Only has 4 frequencies but can also run off 2 x AAA batteries so great for using around the house too.

Just plug into the earphone socket of your device and away you go.

I'll add a photo of mine in a minute.

Anyone know what the quality is like on the car stereo?

I'll go and try it!

Was fine on my hi-fi indoors using the 107.5 frequency, the others had interference.

What sort of range did it have? I'm thinking of small portable radios in the kids rooms and a personal cd player on the landing out of their reach for audio cd bedtime stories1

Right, it says it 'can' have a range of 30 feet or more but 10 feet or less will minimise interference.

Just tried it in both my cars and although both radios would not pick it up on the frequencies printed on the unit (106.7,107.1,107.5 & 107.9) minor tuning either way picked it up no problem on all 4.

The auto tuner in one car also picked up the signal with no problem.....sound quality doesn't seem to be any different to the £30 Griffin one I bought 18 months ago!

Hope this helps.

Sounds good bargin but typicaaly none near me.:(

Well worth a try for £2, voted hot :thumbsup:

Poor -> low volume, stereo questionable, no interference if you're lucky. So a bargain? For the price yes.

err....none of those problems when I tried it in both my cars!

I'm not expecting it to provide Bose sound quality but it was pretty good IMHO.

It will do the job, but as far as "quality" goes, as with most products of this type they are absolute rubbish (unless you don't have any particular musical standards of course).

I have had one of these particular models for a while, picked it up so I could use my MP3 player in the car. It gives low quality audio - and you have to crank the Head Unit volume right up just to get anything listenable - so you have to make sure you turn the volume back down before you switch to any other source or you'll suddenly find yourself being deafened as you go back to the radio/CD. As for signal strength... erm, directly below the radio it's "fine", but it complains and breaks up if I keep it in the centre console under the armrest - about 2 feet away.

Sometime the old adage "you get what you pay for..." does ring true.

great price, rubbish sound quality. your better off with one of those tape adaptors than this

Don't most cars have CD players instead of tapes these days?

Yeh, coz the sound quality of those is awesome..... :roll: Not to mention the problem of using it indoors?

Jeez, it's £2!!!

Some people.

ebuyer have some good ones going for like £5...
rpbolem is you need to order it with other stuff or you get charged for P&P

I have this
Cheap,yes!
But it`s really bad sound quality
You have to turn the volume up quite a bit which then brings in all sorts of interference
I`m gonna buy a better one for the car

been in the runcorn one today and they didnt have any of these :~(

just bought one today from one in st.helens, and i must say it works quite good actually. i have it connected to my ipod, i am into my bass on my music and i must say it is quite low sound output, but i then relised if i turn it up on my ipod full then its loud! not bad quality but im sure there better out there.. this is the first one ive ever owned and im happy with it! £2 is a bargain! Cheers guys!

bought yesterday and didn't seem to work on any of the Frequencies, faulty product or just poor quality?

Like I said earlier, try tuning the receiver either side of the actual frequency a little...mine isn't good on 106.7 for instance, but on 106.5 it's great.
