The iRiver T5 is a low-cost MP3 player. The embedded USB interface of this MP3 player eliminates the need for a separate USB cable. This interface allows you to charge the T5's 120mAh lithium polymer battery (which takes three hours to fully charge), as well as store MP3 and WAV files onto it directly. At 77.5mm x 24.5mm x 14.3mm, the T5 is compact. At 26.3 grams, it is also easy to carry around. This MP3 player is equipped with an FM tuner. The T5 can record FM radio, as well as voice (in WAV format). The 96 x 32 dot-matrix reverse LCD display of the T5 shows song information. This MP3 player differs from the higher cost T6 model in that the T6 has a 280 mAh battery (for up to thirty-three hours of play at a time), six EQ settings, photo viewing capability (JPEG, BMP), and a larger, higher-quality display (1.8 inches of 128 x 160 RGB). There are size options available for the iRiver T5 MP3 player.
