The Review::

The FM Transmitter comes in a plastic box.

There’s nothing else in the box, just the FM Transmitter. On the front are plus and minus buttons for tuning and a small LCD display. The back is just plain and on the top is an Apple style connector. The FM Transmitter is made of plastic and it’s very lightweight. One thing interesting about this little gadget is that it doesn’t require batteries, it uses the power of your device.

On the bottom of the transmitter is another Apple port so you can use it as a pass through for charging or syncing.

To use it you just attach it to your iPod Touch or iPhone in the Apple port. The LCD Display will light up blue temporarily so you can see the frequencies better in the dark.

To test it out I went to my car and listened to music. To use it you need to find a blank or static station on your radio and then tune the FM Transmitter to the same station and then just hit play on your iPod.

The FM Transmitter seems to work fine really, but the sound is a bit odd, it’s kind of muffled, but it is clear though really. My car does have an input for my MP3 player and it’s much clearer than using the FM Transmitter, don’t get me wrong though the transmitter is pretty clear.

 

Conclusion:

The FM Transmitter from USBFever is simple and easy to use, and it works great. I really like the idea of having no batteries and it doesn’t seem to draw that much power from your device.

The price is $17.99 which I think is worth it for the ability to take your music with you in your car.
