RE262? Quite good sounding actually. Better than any of the FiiO amp so far of course.
As for which FiiO amp to recommend - that mainly depends on how much weight you are willing to carry around. If that isn't an issue, E12.

But then, I've used the same battery for any other amp, and never got any of them to produce any noise, so I guess external battery is the way to go if you plan to listen while charging.
E12 can run for over 12hours on a single charge (tested it twice). Unless you actually do listen to it for the whole day, you don't really need to recharge it that often. You can just leave it charging overnight when you are at sleep.
