“The Nextar MA588 MP3 player is sure to delight any music lover who receives it as a gift or finds it in their Christmas stocking,” commented Eddy Zheng, Nextar founder. “With one fresh AAA battery, it will provide up to 12 hours of continuous playback, making for an enjoyable, if not-so-silent, night.”
