Ever work in the backyard and not want to use those pesky headphones that always get in the way.
Well I wanted to use my iPod in the backyard using WiFi internet radio. Are you too cheap to buy one of those fancy expensive ipod amplifiers. Well what better way is to use a amplifier powered by those incredible little Eneloop batteries for dirt cheap.
I used a old beat up radio that I got at a thrift store for $1.50 gutted it and used the shell, including the battery compartment, speaker, amplifier and of course my iPod and bang, portable loud internet rechargeable radio that you can use for years to come.
Step 1: List of Items Needed
*Old radio; $1.50 at thrift store non-working
*Amplifier (from the original radio it self or from something else like portable speakers); $5.00
*Eneloop batteries (my radio needed 4 "C" size batteries); About $20.00 check on Google
*"C" size adapters (or "D" size adapters whatever your radio needs); $5.00 for four
*male to male 3.5mm connector; already had one laying around
*and a ipod or media player; already had mine
*Hooks and Loops (Velcro)
*Multimeter (it helps)
*Spare wires for testing
