Cygnett has launched the Micro rechargeable speaker for iPods and other MP3 players.

The 47x105x23mm speaker is powered by a rechargeable lithium-ion battery that should offer three hours of playback. The battery can be recharged using a USB port.

Mainly black but with choice of red, black or silver trim, the Cygnett Micro rechargeable speaker has a built-in amplifier. It can be used to play tracks stored on an MP3 player or mobile phone through speakers rather than headphones.

The Cygnett Micro is priced at £19.99 and available from Amazon.
