I'm talking about the small, slim remote with a built-in magnet that came standard with the Boom and was available in a pack with a radio battery. I'm trying to source a couple of these for some new Squeezebox Radios that I bought - that magnet is pretty handy in the kitchen and bathroom.

I can't seem to find them available anywhere, Logitech don't sell them any more. Does anyone have any sources?

Yes, it's magnetic. The one on my Boom sticks to the rubberised mount at the top and will stick on a kitchen fridge or my bath - very thoughtful piece of design since portable players are likely to be used in places like the kitchen or even bathroom.

I just managed to find one on Amazon UK as part of the 'Squeezebox Radio Accessory Pack' so I've ordered that. It was pretty steep at 40 - which hurts since my most recent Radio was bought for 75 - but will come in handy. It was the last one though and I'm still not 100% sure that the 3rd Party vendor will actually have it when time comes to ship. If I get it, I'll probably sell on the battery pack and recoup some costs.

I wouldn't mind another one however so if anyone knows a source ....
