I am looking to get a basic amplifier so I can, for example, bring my guitar and pedal out on the porch to practice where I may not have an outlet. I really do not need a speaker, just the amplifier. On eBay I have seen a NUX GP-1 a Concept3 and a Joyo I-plug. All of those are under $20 and I know they are super cheap, but I don't need much. I have a much better amp inside. Just want to go outside before the winter comes again!

Vox amPlug 2 (MIJ, btw) plugs directly into your guitar. They are a bit more expensive and you'll need several if you want a variety of sounds.

Zoom G1on.

Slightly more than the $20 you're talking about, but well worth the money.

Most headphone amps come from the same Chinese factory and just have different brand names added. You can find generic versions on Amazon that sound the same as the name brands, do more, and cost less.

If you're using headphones I'd suggest an amp modeling mfx, like the one Gary mentioned. You get a lot more options, foot controls and it doesn't sound like muffled farts through headphones.

Aside from amplug, line 6 pocket pod is the most popular choice with way more modeling choices.

I use a Korg Pandora Mini for this.

New, they're about $99 (used much cheaper), but the list of what they have available on them for practice is nearly endless. You may end up plugging this thing into your amp as well <G>.

I liked the Pandora Px4 a lot, but the build turned out to be flimsy, and it stopped working after a few months. I was strongly tempted to buy another, but decided against it in the end.

I have a Vox Amplug AC 30 that gets the job done, but IMO it isn't well suited to side-mounted socks. - Too accident-prone.
