What MP3 players run on AA battery/batteries?

I've found the iriver T10 does (quite common, most places sell it).

What else uses AA/AAs?

legend jazz runs on 1 aaa
it's cheap and simple to use, but it can't display song names and when you turn it off it goes back to the first song when you turn it back on

Only old ones usually now use AA batteries, you will find using rechargeable AA versus AAA last much longer with larger range of current draw.

The T10 gets an amazing 40 hours from the AA working on reasonable playback parameters whereas an AAA would struggle to meet 10, Tt also supports OGG which is a rather nice touch (though the AOTuV coding at 45k would not work on this device), I wonder about the voice and FM recording file format however, I have an old player which records into MP3 directly (BOOTLEGGING!) which sounds stunning but is just about stuffed.

Nice player and good spotting one that uses AA!

Other (Cheap of free) alternatives, get a Creative MUVO and make up a small AA battery holder with a USB attachment and just plug the "usb stick" part in.. The player by default uses AAA and lasts about 12 hours.

I just got one only today which is a blatant Chinese copy of a Crative MUVO,
1.5V-5v is simply shoved up the USB port and inserting headphones makes it switch between playback and USB-MS

It's replacing a massive old music-on-hold system that used 16 Eproms! and an obscure TI voice chip i once saw on a rare soundcard..

Sadly, it's only 128MB which ia a real pain si might try and insert a 1GB chip internally.. just shows, some players are very versaitile,
