Sound bar for iPad?

One of my neighbours (lovely old lady) has asked me to find her a sound bar for her iPad. There are loads of these on ebay, Amazon etc. I think she just wants one that plugs into the headphone socket but just wondered if anyone could recommend something. Not too expensive. forty quid, something like that I suppose.

Why plug in and not blue tooth?
What's the difference between a sound bar and a speaker?

Well I mentioned blue tooth or wireless and she thinks it will be a fiddle and she might be right. Great while they work

I dont think there is much difference Jan. She just saw someone with one at one of her choir sessions. I think maybe a powerful single blue tooth speaker might be better but I Dont really know as its not something I bother with. Dont even have a tablet. If I want to make some proper noise I have massive PA system and a Marshall Amp that can literally move the furniture.

I use Apple AirPlay from my iPad and phone paired to my Bluetooth capable speakers at home and to a sound bar in the motorhome when away, dead easy.

Sound bar has stereo capability, a normal single speaker is mono.

The Air play thing looks a bit complicated for her. We are talking seriously technically challenged here.

I have a single speaker, not sure if it's at home or in the van so can't check the make. It is both blue tooth or plug in stereo, powerful, has an SD card slot. There are a lot of single speakers that are stereo.

And that's why I qualified it by mentioning "normal single speaker"

For a speaker connection it's really not, just pair it once then just select airplay each time you want to play through the speaker.

My technophobe better half can manage it and she has issues with the SkyQ buttons and her mobile phone.
