4.0 out of 5 stars Fair quality, great for the price!
This little transmitter arrived with basic packaging, consisting of a bubble wrap envelope. It contained the unit itself and a 12V to 5V power adaptor for use in cars.
It takes 2 AAA batteries with the capability to charge rechargeable ones, though I don't recommend using them if an external power source is available.

Sound quality is mainly dependant on...

Unfortunately the visual display stopped working within a week and it hasn't worked since then. I haven't returned it as don't have the documentation and the costs might exceed the price.but certainly disappointed in the quality of thus particular product.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fair quality, great for the price!, 26 Oct. 2010
This review is from: Wireless FM Transmitter for iTouch 2, iTouch 4, All Mobile phones with 3.5mm Jack Audio (Electronics)
This little transmitter arrived with basic packaging, consisting of a bubble wrap envelope. It contained the unit itself and a 12V to 5V power adaptor for use in cars.
It takes 2 AAA batteries with the capability to charge rechargeable ones, though I don't recommend using them if an external power source is available.

Sound quality is mainly dependant on the receiver. I tried it using my Sony Ericsson to receive from my PC and it was fine. The stock stereo in a Citroen Xsara Picaso was also excellent. Great low and high frequency responce. Nothing is lost in the transmission, ngiving CD or even DVD quality sound(provided a good sound stream is available). There were a few hickups though, the radio in a Mazda 6 was picking up a lot of interference and a Nissan Micra failed to detect it at all. That being said, there's no reason for a decent stereo to not pick it up well, but some may struggle if there's shielding in the way(french cars tend to have less interfering body work than japanese ones as I've seen and heard of, but may be just me).

The story turns a bit different when battery power is in use. The signal generated is proportional to supply P.D., meaning that going down from 5V to 2.4(2x1.2 AAA Rechargeable,750 mAh) will drop the strength of the signal by a factor of about 2. That is not really an issue if using the adaptor, but if not used, the best receiver I tested(in car) picked up limited interference that did not affect overall sound quality, just added a little noise, but nothing to freak out over. It will not be enough to override an existing radio station as it would under external power, so if you enter the area of transmission of a frequency you thought was unused, you will know about it if you run on batteries, but won't be bothered if under full power.

Overall:

Pros:
-Excellent sound quality
-Easy to use, quite instinctive
-Draws little current
-Powerful enough to jam radios in your own car, but not someone else's
-Universal 3.5mm input will fit most players
-Can be switched to standby where only the clock works(not the display or anything else), drawing minimal power and extending battery life
-Will charge rechargeable batteries if used
-Small enough to fit in your pocket, yet powerful enough to provide steady in-car music entertainment

Cons:
-Sound quality depends on receiver
-Some noise picked up when using 1.2V batteries(not tested 1.5 ones yet as there are no rechargeable 1.5V batteries yet)
-I can't seem to change the temp reading from F to C. I've tried every button combination in every state. Just won't
-No manual or instructions included, but it's all pretty self-explanatory

Just what I needed to listen to my local Radio station in my car, as they only broadcast on line at the moment, so the transmitter and my mobile are a perfect combination
