It did take more than 2 weeks to be delivered because its imported here in India on order. The quality and finish of product is quite good too.
It takes a single 9W battery and would just plug into your guitar's amp jack.
If you want a cheap lightweight amp this is it.

Yea its cheaply made.
The first one sent to me was broken when I got it. The selector switch was pushed into the box. I am very careful when I plug it in and unplug it because it feels like it will break. I wont be using use the headphone, mp3 in or the power jacks because I fear a slight pull on the cord will break the box.
It sounds like crap but how could it not? The speaker is on par with the old pocket sized tape recorders except louder. It sounds good enough for me to practice with or play a quick tune for the wife. It sounds better than I thought it would. If you want to hear what it sounds like just youtube it. https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=+Joyo+JA-01+Mini
If you want a mini amp for the headphone usage I would recommend a VOX mini amp.
It was only about 10 bucks, If it lasts a couple months before it breaks I will probably buy another one.
And of course... Its made in China
I was surprised and delighted to find these type of JOYO mini amps also have an input so they can be plugged into a wired adapter so they can also be used without batteries if desired. Of course, there is the MP3 input.
I utilize mine while playing my electric sitar if I do not want to ‘plug’ in to my Ibanez. I like to play in my front yard while I watch my vegetables and other plants grow. I know the birds, butterflies and squirrels enjoy it and also my neighbors that walk by enjoy hearing the peaceful melodies that I compose. I think music is very important. As a house and land and plants/tree owner (and sitar owner,) I feel it is also very important for me to play in front of my house softly when I can (I have a busy schedule) as this is a caring thing for me to do sharing this music with others. Obviously, I do not play loud and am careful with this and do not disturb others. Playing my sitar is perfect for this, as it is not as often seen as a guitar. My spouse owns and plays another not often seen instrument, a handpan, that he also plays in our front yard sometimes. It is also soft and melodic (not loud.)
I can play my sitar un-amped. But since I play it on my lap when I play in my yard I tend to strum stronger because the birds singing around me seems to make the volume of my sitar too low as I like to hear it up around my ears but play it on my lap not in the traditional way. I ended up breaking some strings not realizing my strength on my strums and that is why I bought my JOYO JA-01 Mini Amplifier. I can strum softly and never break another string. Sitar strings are actually very sturdy.
It is also fantastic to use my JOYO mini amp with headphones for those times when I am up early playing and my spouse is still asleep. Even though my sitar playing is beautiful, it would not be nice to awaken him since he might be tired the next day. The headphones that come with this JOYO are not the very best sounding in my opinion and I might try another pair and see how that sounds when I get time. They match though and are handy.
Mine also arrived with a 9-volt battery included. It was meticulously wrapped in an impressive manner. It was the first time I had ever seen a battery wrapped with a ‘gift’ wrap style using plastic wrap. Opening it slowly to admire the wrapping (this product was made in China) I thought about what was written on the battery. It was a warning not to recharge it or it may leak. As I sat and thought I realized it seemed best to save this battery and never to use it. I placed it in a decorative battery box. I then proceeded to pull out one of my rechargeable 9 volts and I utilized that instead.
The unit is not unattractive but could be better looking. I did know what it looked like before I purchased mine. Seems sturdy but I will not drop it. When not in use I am plugging it into the headphone jack on my amp.
I do not like the sound of the distortion effect when using the headphones, but with the speaker, it is a nice additional feature for times when I want to get that old, classic electric guitar sound.
I have seen some of the comments from guitar players on these units and that is why I purchased one knowing it would also be great to use with my sitar. I like it when the person explains what type of guitar they play, make and the pickups so it gives me an idea about their comments on the sound. Some were also thoughtful to say how it sounds in relation to the type of amplifier(s) they own. This is important and helpful, as I could not ‘hear’ this amp before I purchased one.
So how does the JOYO stack up to my older Ibanez amp? Well, obviously, it is not as loud; there is no ‘honey’ hum as I call it. But then again I do not always want that amp hum sound. The JOYO gives a clean digital sound. -by Julie Sands
It's pretty hardy, too. I had it plugged into my bass for several weeks and played it daily, and it still sounds good!
