Hi, I looked around for exactly that recently. I was about to go for the Creative nano or MuVo 1gb (as it had control s/w and allowed for arrangement of songs in albums). You can get it either at Pixmania or savastore for approx. £80.
I wouldn't spend that kind of money on my son. It's not that I'm tight fisted but he needs something that he can use and abuse and isn't going to be a major trauma if it breaks or gets lost. There are 512 Mb players for around £50. I think they all take AAA batteries, but you can use rechargeables in them.
