Since been legalised in the UK, there are lots of portable FM transmitters on the market. In relative terms, they are cheap to buy. They are flexible in use, all you have to do is insert the 3.5 mm plug attached to the unit into the corresponding socket of any audio source, MP3 player, computer, hi-fi etc. Then switch on and set the transmitter to a clear FM frequency, tune any FM radio to the same frequency and you have your own radio station!.

What I like about this particular product is the great range of frequencies you can choose, this is useful if you do alot of travelling. There is a facility to save the best frequencies. Compared with other units I have tried, the LUPO transmitter offers better sound quality without the distortion associated with some other models. It also has a good transmission range which means that I can take a portable radio anywhere around the house, garden or the garage and receive a decent stereo signal. Great when you are doing jobs around the place. The LUPO has a clear blue display which can also tell you the time or temperature. These are hardly essential but are a nice touch. Battery life is good, I tend to use rechargeable AAA batteries, but in the car it is better to use the cigarette lighter adapter which is included and save the batteries.
All in all, this is a good product and represents great value for money. I was wary of buying another FM transmitter because previous purchases have been disappointing in terms of signal quality or their poor build. This time I did a bit of research on what was on the market, read the reviews and decided on the LUPO. I was not disappointed and I don't think you will be.

The title says it all, I bought this for my daughters birthday & she loves it, it took only a minute or two to unpack, straight into car, found clear station at second attempt tuned FM transmitter to same station & there it was, loud, clear & constant, slight problem using the in car charger but that was the lighter socket in my daughters car (needs cleaning up inside) tried it in our new car & worked perfectly( tuned in just as easy) & with the presets she can save a few different stations in case of interference when traveling around, it chargers her ipod nano at same time, or it works with 2 aaa batteries(don't know how they will last)She even liked the the way it tells you the temperature & the little torch built in to it, you can also connect it to your laptop using the supplied USB cable. It is small with an easy to read screen simple to use, switch on, change stations( & is safer with the presets as you haven't got to start hunting for clear stations while driving) I looked at several different types & think this is the best in every way there were some more expensive ones but could not see any point in spending more when this does evrything you want it to do & some, at a very reasonable price, It arrived from Gizmo before the estimated date for despatch, Cannot think of one thing to complain about so go on Buy it you will not be sorry

When we first got it, it worked OK for podcasts (i.e. speech only), but not particularly well for music.
When the battery was in, then every time when I came back into the car, it wouldn't power on. So I took the battery out and just used it with the cigarette lighter.
However, a couple of months on, and it's now not working at all.
It might be cheap, but I'd have expected a slightly better quality and longevity from it.

I bought this to transmit music from my computer to home hifi.

Firstly, it's very simple to use and the option to power direct from a USB port is a great function. It also has a 'decent' range, and for the price is pretty amazing considering these features. It does have some random features such as a flashlight and temperature read-out which I may find useful one day !?

However, good as it looks and appears, I have been suffering some random sound distortion. I'm unsure whether this is because of the frequencies I've experimented with or down to the quality of the product. I can't believe it's anything to do with the positioning in this instance as I still get this at 1m clear range from device to device. This is something I didn't expect after reading most of the reviews, but maybe it's a question of 'you get what you pay for' ?

Overall, it's a good, cheap, full-function device. As regards sound quality the jury's still out until I have time to fully test this out.

What transmitter have you got?

Over the past year, I've used four, cheap fm transmitters. One performed poorly and three have been surprisingly good. Two were identical and the other two looked very similar but not quite identical. The three transmitters that performed well were LUPO branded (actually, the transmitter itself was not branded but the packaging sported a LUPO sticker) and supplied by GIZMO-DEALS. The poor performer was branded as VIRGIN (megastores), which I obtained elsewhere.

The product photo displayed by GIZMO-DEALS on Amazon today does not look like the LUPO transmitters they've supplied to me (it's branded VEHO, isn't it)?

The reason I mention all this is because it seems that performance varies widely between what looks to be the same piece of kit. How can you be sure you're getting a good performer? There is such variation in these customer product reviews that I wonder if people are receiving different products that happen to look the same (or near as damn it) yet perform quite differently.

All I can say is that the three fm transmitters supplied to me by GIZMO-DEALS work very well with only minor variations in performance between them. The older transmitters (purchased August and September 2009) are labelled as Model No. 668A and the newer one (purchased May 2010) has the Model No. 018A marked on it's casing. All three LUPO transmitters had the ref CY-668 printed on the packaging.

Review of LUPO FM Transmitters 018A and 668A (not used `in-car')

For devices costing less than £10, these FM transmitters represent great value.

Setting up is straightforward. The only time consuming bit is scrolling through your radio to find gaps on the FM (VHF) band in your area (in South London, there aren't many).
