Most portable speaker systems tend to come with the phrase "to fit in perfectly with your iPod". Not the K1000 portable speakers from Minispeakers, which are offered in a very striking pink colour.
Designed to offer something approaching a stereo experience from virtually any audio device you can think of, but most obviously MP3/CD portable audio players and laptops, simply connect directly to the earphone socket and away you go.
Ideal for taking around, the fold-up "clam shell" design makes them small enough to drop in your bag, while the input cable is built into the sides of the speakers to save on space and the whole unit fits into a travel pouch (provided). Battery life is around 22 hours from 3 x AA batteries or you can power via your computer’s USB cable and externally using a 6 volt AC/DC adaptor (not included). And if the pink isn’t quite your thing, they are available in white and silver too.
Available now for around £20.
