There are a selection available on www.ebay.co.uk

Also, and music store should sell them for around 15.

I would suggest that, rather than this option, you get a pitch pipe instead.
It's far cheaper, uses no power source aside from your lungs, and from the point of view of a music teacher is far more effective in the teaching and developing of ear training.
