Panasonic realizes that the 1990s were the pinnacle of all things fun. So it should come as no suprise that they still embrace the media format of the time, the Compact Disc. These portable CD players are, um, portable, and features the catchy names SL-CT830 and CT730. They play CDs and MP3-encoded CDs, and the battery life is spectacular as always—two AA batteries nets you 73 CD hours or 130 MP3 hours. Jeez. If only the iPod got battery life as gnarly as that. Glad to see somebody still cares about something that's not flash media or hard drive related.
