Hi All

I'm struggling to find a replacement part for a portable speaker.

The part was a 'dongle' that used the USB port on the portable speaker to connect to bluetooth devices to play audio (inc microphone). It was a pretty flimsy thing that did not take long to break (speaker is at a secondary school).

I've seen adapters that use a 3.5mm jack, unfortunately the speaker does not possess a 3.5mm input. 

Ideas and links to products greatly appreciated as it is really handy to have the bluetooth option for this speaker.

Try just plugging in various bluetooth USB sticks. My epson printer which needed a really expensive epson one if you believed them worked with several $2 ones off deal extreme just as well.

Otherwise see if the stick can be repared. If the USB plug has just come off the board then thats usually resolderable, happens all the time with flash drives that are needlessly large.
