What's more, you can insert the micro SD card directly from your Smartphone so you can listen to music without interupting your conversation.
So if you’ve got a rechargeable MP3 player, get some rechargeable portable speakers to go with it: Accento – the best rechargeable speakers for the money.

One of the discoveries I made at the Gadget Show is a company with a range of speakers otoneaudio.co.uk I have started by looking at their two smallest offerings the Aporto and the Accento, both give good quality output.
This is the smaller of the two and has a solid battery that enables you to play output from any device that has a 3.5mm socket.
It is 17.5x6x4.5cm and weights 200 grams. The 17.5cm length will increase by 5cm when you have 3.5mm jack in the left of the unit and USB cable in the right of the unit. Both are supplied but the USB cable is only required whilst charging the battery. From complete discharge this takes around 90 minutes when it is not in use.
The controls consist of three bar buttons on top of the unit as well as an LED. The LED shows green when charged, red whilst charging and can also flash red/green or red/amber dependant on state, all is explained in User Manual.
However this is also an MP3 player as it has a slot in the base for a micro SD card. So far from being just a pair of small but powerful speakers it can also be a self contained MP3 player hence the initial size and weight.
The LED mentioned above then takes on a different job becoming an indicator for MP3 playback. All this is explained in the small but readable eight sided manual. Even though this is a single unit it does give stereo as it has two 3watt speakers. Powering an iPod or external MP3 player the sound is improved from that available natively.
While the unit is connected it can be used to transfer files to and from the micro SD card so it can be storage medium, useful if your PC does not have a micro SD port array. One point – it is mentioned in the manual – but it is easy to forget the internal storage will always be unavailable if you have a 3.5mm jack inserted in the unit.
A lovely small unit small enough to fit in any pocket or purse and with a six hour life between charges a useful small speaker system The Otone Accento is available from the link below for £29.99

This speaker has a grille which encompasses the whole front, while having a metalic rim and plastic back which a built-in stand. Sound quality is good, and its size means you'll be able to take it everywhere with you, carrying it place to place with the handy wrist strap attached to the rear.
