Here are the contents of the box.

Contents, at a Glance

In the box, you get:

  • 1 x Dell Pocket DJ drivers and software CD
  • 1 x Pair of earbuds
  • 1 x USB cable
  • 1 x AC Power adapter
  • 1 x Dell Pocket DJ
  • 1 x Product Information Guide
  • 1 x Getting Started Guide

I wish Dell had included some sort of case for the player (sadly, it got scratched within the first day of me having it... )

Let's have a look at some of the stuff the Dell Pocket DJ came with.



These are the stock earbuds that Dell has supplied with their Pocket DJ.

Dell Earbuds

These earbuds are basically really standard; there's nothing special about them, unless you count the fact that they have the Dell logo stamped on it. The cord is about four feet long. These headphones have a frequency response of 24Hz-20kHz.


Sync Cable

Let's have a look at the sync cable.

Sync Cable

The sync cable included with the player uses USB for computer-to-device data transfers. In other words, this is how you get your music into the Dell Pocket DJ, which makes the USB cable very important indeed! It is reasonably long: approximately five feet . It should be enough for most applications.


AC Adaptor

Now for the AC Adapter.

AC Adapter

Here's a shot of the adapter. The power cord is two feet long and, like the sync cable, also utilizes the USB connector on the Dell Pocket DJ to recharge the player.

Here's a close up on the plug unit.

Close Up to Details on the Power Plug

The thing that I noticed right off the bat was the input voltage. The Pocket DJ's power plug can take inputs ranging from 100V to 240V (as shown in picture above).

Since the voltage of electrical and electronic appliances differ from country to country (US uses 115V, Malaysia uses 240V, for example), the voltage tolerance enable the owner to use this plug anywhere in the world (or at least, any country whose voltage falls within this range). That makes it a major advantage of this AC adapter - it would only leave the problem of having the different power pins.

I also noticed that there was a tab at the side of the AC adapter.

Ejector Tab

After some experimentation, I discovered that the power pins pop off when pressure is applied to the tab.

Applying Pressure to the Ejector Tab Results in the Power Pins Coming Off

Hmm... That's kinda cool. So does this mean that Dell sells the different power pin sets? I checked the Dell website, but couldn't to find any; the site has so many things!

Anyway, next up, the Dell Pocket DJ....
