Klegg's Mini is the smallest kid on the block


It's finally time to upgrade my iPod. Where I once marveled at how a company was able to pack that much sound into a tiny package; I've grown tired of lugging an expensive piece of gear around. I've been looking for a nice and cheap solid state player, and the Klegg Mini fits my two main criteria: Size and Battery Life.

Touted as the smallest mp3 player with a full color LCD Klegg's new one gig model measures 1.8 by 1.6 inches, and was designed to fit on a keychain. The LCD is one square inch, and it comes with a useless slideshow setting for photo viewing when you’re bored. Other features include equalizer settings for music playback, and a voice recorder.

I see a lot of small mp3 players in the news, but the Klegg caught my attention with 26 hours of playback time. That’s almost double the battery life of an iPod Nano. The little guy has a USB 2.0 interface, and the battery recharges while it's attached to the computer. The Klegg mini line has been available for over a year, but their one gig version should be in stores shortly for ninety-nine bucks.

I'd like to throw some brilliant props to Klegg's marketing team for snapping photos of all those celebrities using their product at Sundance. It really made me giggle..

Last year, I bought a Samsung mp3 player for $80. It was advertised as having about 20 hours of battery life. I'm glad I bought it over an ipod because the ad was very wrong. I get anywhere between 50 - 60 hours on one AA battery.
