Of course it still uses batteries. Do you carry around a computer with your MP3 player plugged into it via USB? No? Then it has batteries.

I have a 128mb i-BEAD100 cos its usb powered (no batteries), has fm radio and is tiny. If I was buying another one now, I'd buy one with more memory and no radio (it aint as good as the radio on my phone).
Never really wanted a huge hdd in my pocket, trying to search for my favourite song out of 2000 mp3s is just gonna be such hard work!
