Pretty good for the incredibly low price – Hamburger Style USB Rechargeable Speaker for MP3/MP4/PC/Cell Phone Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Pretty decent sound when expanded (the space created by the "accordion" significantly improves bass. Can play MP3 files on uSD card from Mac or PC. Comes with charging cable and iPod interface cable. Very small.
Cons:
Of course it is very small so don't expect anything great quality-wise. Documentation is bad. Only one button controls everything and is a bit hard to manipulate so occasionally you do the wrong thing. If you pull too hard when expanding the accordion it will break! Runs 2-4 hours on one charge depending on volume. Does not indicate when charging is complete.
Other:
1/8" port is NOT audio input, it is output for headphones. Use mini-USB port with included cable for audio input. Volume control does not work with audio input, only with uSD card (which is actually fine since you can use iPod volume control). LED is green while charging but never goes off so you're not sure when it's done (probably 4-8 hours?). LED blinks red when playing from uSD card, but does not show anything when playing from audio input (i.e. if left on, battery will discharge slowly).
Bottomline:
Cheaply made but great deal for the price.
