Performs quite well, only 2 hour battery life - BUT can be used on USB power
on 28 January 2015
Takes a few weeks to arrive from china but is not too bad for £3. There are no instructions but it's pretty straightforward. When you plug in the usb cable for charging it displays the voltage as eg "4-4" which means 4.4 volts. The battery is fully charged at ~4.5v and empty at ~3.4v. When you switch it on it displays the frequency it is transmitting on. This can be changed in 0.1Mhz steps from 87.5Mhz to 108.0Mhz. I found 103MHz pretty good (And it does remember your previous setting). The signal is not very strong but is pretty clear - just turn the volume on your radio up. Although the battery only lasts about 2 hours it works fine while plugged in to a usb charger, either from a computer usb port, a dedicated charger or a car adapter. I use it with indoor computers and TVs to get a wireless headset via my pocket fm receiver (or can just use a phone with fm radio). A 32ohm headset will give very good volume, there is a little hiss but stereo performance is ok. It's not perfect, but fine for basic use, and it works fine while charging so the 2 hour battery life is not such a worry for me.
