I'm trying to find a replacement battery for my PSP, but everything I'm finding seems to have consistent negative reviews that they're crap.  Anyone have suggestions for a good quality battery pack and where to purchase?

 

 

PSP Battery -- 3.6v  1200 mAH

Sony Model PSP-S110

 

 

Thanks in advance!

I think the issue is no batteries have been made for a while and everything currently available now is just nos, unfortunately, meaning all "new" batteries are also at the end of their useful life expectancy. :(

From what I have heard, buying new official ones is a crapshoot. It may be fine, or it may be bulging to the point where you can't close the battery door. I believe there's supposed to be a good third party one, forgot who makes it though. Bought a different brand for my son's PSP, and in less than a year, it was dead.

I'd expect all new, completely unused, official batteries to be bloated beyond use by. When I finally unboxed a sealed 2000 unit - many years ago at this point - it's batter ywas bloated. In addition to that, all 3 of the spare batteries I had bought new were similarly affected.  The battery in my main psp2000 still works, although I charge that every month or two even when I'm not playing it since they discharge even if not plugged in. Which reminds me I should probably recharge the psp this weekend...

Curiosity. Can the pep be played without the battery? Bong get me wrong, I'd prefer it to be portable, but it's looking like I'm about to loose that cause my batteries are all getting bloated, so it's only a matter of time before I won't have a battery.

I tested it with a 1000 and it worked a while back with just the charger.

I can't say I'm going to be happy with that eventual setup - my power adapter can sometimes be a bit finicky when plugged in for charging. So I can easily see me trying to play a game and randomly (And probably often) it just dying because the powercord was nudged.

I ended up getting this one for about 10 bucks.  It's a perfect fit in my PSP, and so far (I've used it for just over 2 weeks) it's held charge about the same as the original.

Around 2009 I bought a replacement battery for my PSP-1000 and it still lasts for hours even today.

Yeah, not surprised. So long as the battery is kept charged regularly enough it's likely still going to be kicking around just fine. My PSP2000 is still working fine with it's original battery as well. However a battery that was never charged would have leaked all it's charge then started to corrupt after a couple years. It's why the spare batteries I have ended up all dying before they were taken out of the package.
