Eco Media Player
"My original windup radio pioneered a new eco technology that is as relevant and cutting edge today as it was 16 years ago. A new generation has grown up with many electronic devices that were inconceivable when I created my radio. Now we have developed a range of products that combine the best of these modern ideas with the freedom and energy efficiency of windup technology.
Welcome to the next generation."
Trevor Baylis OBE
Power - Windup / USB
The eco windup system means that you never need to worry about running out of power or wasting environmentally harmful batteries. One minute of winding gives up to 40 minutes of play time so it’s ideal for the beach or long weekends in the country - you can even use it to charge your mobile phone in an emergency!
Alternatively, you can still charge the media player conventionally through the USB port of your computer.
Media - Music / Video / Radio
Watch your favourite movies and music videos on the bright full colour screen. Listen to the music and movie soundtrack on the superb sound system or tune into your favourite programmes on the FM stereo radio. View your photo albums and read ebooks - any time, any place. With or without power!
Storage - Internal Memory / SD Card
You can store all your media and data onto the 2gb internal memory, and even more with plug in SD cards. When connected to your computer the device will appear as an external disk drive so you can easily “drag and drop” all your favourite media files.
