This product uses the cigarette lighter socket in your vehicle for power, so
you don’t have to worry about batteries. It has one LED, but no switches or
To use it, you tune your FM car radio to 107.7 +/- 0.5 MHz. Plug the ZUKZ
into the cigarette lighter socket. Plug the 30" standard sized phono connector
into the earphone jack any audio device such as an iPod, CD player etc. That’s
all there is to it.

Depending on where you live, this may or may not be the case for you.
As far as audio quality, the ZUKZ suffers from the same problem that most FM
transmitters do. Music sounds dull / flat using this device. I prefer to use a
cassette adapter for the most part. I would only recommend this for people that
listen to audio books through their audio devices. I don’t think dull / flat
audio would really matter while listening to the spoken word.
