MiCorder Can Be Your Recorder

Tiny inexpensive digital recorder could be suitable for recording emergencies

How low can they go, how small can they get?

The MiCorder MP3 Recorder from Ölens Technology goes for $79.99 (MSRP).

About the same size as a pack of cigarettes and maybe a little thinner, it records via a 1/8-inch input (with 1/8-inch – 1/8-inch cable included) or an onboard mic. A well-placed adapter and a handheld mic could be used.

Recording format is MP3 only. The MiCorder uses SD cards as its medium.

It has jog/shuttle controls and a backlit LCD screen for navigation. It ships with earbuds. A rechargeable Li-Ion battery is expected to last more than 10 hours. A USB port allows transfer to computer of music files and recharging.
