No, portable CD players do not have built-in speakers. However, you can always buy a speaker or pair of speakers and plug it/them into the headphone jack, just make sure whatever you by has the standard (or smaller) jack, which I believe is 3.5mm.

Not good at all. Within 1 hour - you get "battery low".
When the same batteries are installed in a Sony Walkman - battery life is extended several hours.

I've never used it with batteries. I had an AC adapter that fit this unit (not included when you buy it!) so I plug it in.

There isn't a concrete answer for this question. It depends on how frequently you use this product, for how long at a time, etc. Batteries should last for a while though..

answer 2
The Insignia NS-P5113 |SKU:9139826 Portable CD Player’s anti-skip electronic shock protection (ESP) system prevents this unit’s laser beam pickup from skipping or missing parts of a song during active use. Active use includes activities such as walking, jogging, running, or exercising while holding the portable player in hand. The Insignia CD player will also be subject to excessive vibration if it is used in a moving vehicle. Under normal circumstances, a CD player’s optical pick-up mechanism would be unable to focus on continuously reading the playback disc during active use for enjoyment of your favorite songs. However, the Insignia CD Player incorporates an automatic electronic buffer system that allows it to store up to 240 seconds of music on an audio CD or 480 seconds of music on an MP3 disc into memory so that the Insignia portable does not skip portions of a track while the user is engaged in active use while carrying the CD player. The buffer time of 240 or 480 seconds allows the CD player enough time in most instances of active use to recover playback of the disc should it experience an unexpected violent movement that would normally cause disruption or stoppage of disc playback. Please note that electronic shock protection is not needed if the Insignia CD player is used during a non-active use such as listening to the unit on your sofa at home. You can disable the ESP for audio CD’s when appropriate, but not for MP3 discs. This unit’s FM tuner is not affected by the built-in anti-shock protection system. Good Luck.

Yes. The Insignia NS-P5113 FM Tuner MP3 Portable CD Player |SKU:9139826 does offer two channel stereo reproduction of any of your favorite audio CD’s.

As per the operating instructions on page 15 under the “Troubleshooting ” section, for the Insignia NS-P5113 Portable FM Tuner MP3 CD Player |SKU:9139826 states that if a CD does not play or stops playing suddenly, the direct cause is that the MP3 files that were recorded on the CD by the customer are corrupt. It is most likely that the transferred WAV and/or MP3 files were corrupted during the recording process on your computer. The operating instructions recommend that in order to remedy this particular situation, you must be certain that the .WAV and/or MP3 files that are being burned to the CD-R audio disc are not corrupt. Lastly, you can try to burn a new CD-R disc with uncorrupted MP3 files on them and then attempt playback again on the Insignia NS-P5113 Portable MP3 CD Player. Good Luck.

Unfortunately, the Insignia NS-P5113 |SKU:9139826 Portable MP3 CD Player does not incorporate the resume play option in its product feature set for your audio book playback needs. You will not be able to fix this stop and restart again at the same place issue on the Insignia portable CD Player. Sorry. However don’t despair. You can still purchase a state-of-the-art Sony Walkman CD Player from Best Buy for your advanced CD-DA compliant audio book playback needs. With that in mind, any of the following portable audio products feature the resume play mode option by default:
1. Sony Walkman CD Player D-EJ011|SKU:8234449
2. Sony Walkman CD Player D-FJ041|SKU:4426839
3. Sony Walkman CD Player D-EJ017CK |SKU:4781295
Good Luck.

Yes. It is possible to listen to any store purchased audio CD or user created CD-R/RW disc that conforms to the Red Book industry standard CD-DA bit-rate format on the Insignia NS-P5113 Portable MP3 CD Player without a pair of stereo headphones. Playback of discs that are outside the scope of this item’s operating instructions or audio discs that do not conform to the CD-DA standard may work but can’t be guaranteed by the manufacturer. An optional pair of speakers is required that plug into the Insignia NS-P5113 Portable CD Player’s dedicated 3.5mm stereo line output jack. Any single or pair of powered, passive, wireless, travel companion, portable battery operated, or computer speakers with a 3.5mm (1/8”) stereo or mono line input jack from the portable audio or computer departments that Best Buy sells online or in-store will work for this type of music sharing application on the Insignia Portable CD Player. Personally, I recommend Sony SRS series portable speakers for best audio performance. The Insignia NS-P5113 FM Tuner Portable CD Player does not feature an integrated speaker for any non-private playback scenario. Most listeners will use this Insignia NS-P5113 Portable MP3 CD Player with a pair of included or aftermarket upgrade stereo headphones connected to this unit’s 3.5mm (1/8”) stereo headphone output jack. Please note that the Insignia NS-P5113 Portable CD Player does not support DualDisc DVD/CD playback, DVD-Audio disc playback, DVD video disc playback, DVD+/-R/RW recordable media, or Blu-ray Disc playback. With that in mind, you can purchase the Insignia NS-P5113 |SKU:9139826 CD Player with digital FM Tuner and MP3 CD Playback from Best Buy for your music and audio book public sharing listening needs. Additionally, I would recommend any of the following Sony, Insignia, Rocketfish, Memorex, or Dynex self-powered stereo speakers for your music sharing interests indoors or outdoors on the Insignia NS-P5113 Portable FM Tuner CD Player.
1. Sony SRS-M50/BLK| SKU:8989197
2. Sony SRS-D4 |SKU:2690882
3. Sony SRS-DB500 |SKU:9734199
4. Sony SRS-D25/BLK |SKU:9733967
5. Sony SRS-P7
6. Sony SRS-A3
7. Sony SRS-Z50/BLK
8. Insignia NS-PS1111|SKU:9183288
9. Rocketfish RF-RBWS01 |SKU:2053402
10. Rocketfish RF-RBWS02 |SKU:9426089
11. Dynex DX-PS1-B |SKU:2256416
12. Memorex ML100BLK |SKU:1160608

Good Luck.
