Thumbs down Coby MP-C582 MP3 player


I bought a Coby MP-C582 MP3 player on the Bay of e because I liked my old Coby MP3 player so much and haven't liked any of the others I have bought since the original's flashram failed.

Some people on eBay sell the MP-C582 (and other Coby MP3 players) that have an integrated rechargeable battery. (My old Coby used a AAA.) It was brand new, still in its clamshell - but the battery wouldn't take a charge. I wasn't surprised as it is about 10 years old. Coby discontinued its MP3 players years ago, doesn't support them anymore. The seller automatically issued a call tag so I expect I'll get my $15 back.

I haven't seen a review of these anywhere, and I won't be able to leave one on eBay and get a refund, so I'm posting here as a warning to others.

I have good luck with the water proof cheapo chinese mp3 players on my motorcycle trips from ebay.

But usb charge only. But positive note is price was under 7 bucks. Battery is good for about 4 hours.
I keep a usb charge port wired into my motorcycle harness. It is a small inverter type of thing.
I get 110v plug on it also.

You get motorcycle trips from eBay?

Thanks. Does it require outboard memory? I used to go on long trips, and I use rechargeable batteries, so I carry extras. And I use it as portable memory when I drop by public computers that have access to journals and subscriptions that I don't. The original Coby was perfect. I paid $9 for it at Staples (marketed for business-persons to record their important thoughts). The many imitators are junk. I don't know why they can't get it right.

All I got is a GED. Don't write well.
Does not require outboard memory and no. There is no sd slot. It has phone card slot though. and a usb port.
Everything has gone up on price online.
Even motorcycles and parts.
Good luck finding what you want at the price you paid with new stuff.

Odd that it doesn't mention how much memory it has built in. How much does it have?
