Make use of that old cassette player with a Bluetooth adapter

Bluetooth Cassette Adapter

How many of you still listen to your old cassette tapes? I’m going to guess that very few of you do. Now, how many of you still have a tape deck in your car? While many people have upgraded to a CD player, not everyone has managed to do so. That’s why you might want to look into this Bluetooth Cassette Tape Adapter.

I remember back when portable CD players became popular, they started selling cassette tape adapters that would hook into them. This works on the same principal, only instead of running a cord to your old CD player, it connects to your MP3 player via Bluetooth. Unfortunately you will still have a cord sticking out, as it needs to pull power from your car’s cigarette adapter.

The device will run you around $35 depending on where you pick it up. On one hand, CD players are so cheap that you’re better off installing one of those in your car. On the other hand, this will save you the hassle of trying to remove the old stereo (those can be a real pain sometimes), not to mention the fact that many people are shunning CDs for MP3 players anyway.

  1. No, you don’t need to have it plugged in to use it. Don’t you do research on products you post? I found it out in about 30 seconds.

    It has an internal battery that it says lasts for about 5 hours run-time (2 hours to charge, 120 hours for standby). The power comes through a regular, round DC plug, so other adapters will likely work as well (5v is pretty common), and it very nicely has one with a USB plug on the other end. This way, you can charge it from any USB power source, or from the included car adapter, which is really a car-to-USB converter.
