PSP battery life?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I bought a psp used off ocn, about 3 weeks ago. I charged it up, used it for about 2 hours and it has sit since. Well last night I went to fire it up and it was dead, I even plugged it in and there wasn't enough juice to play when it was plugged in. So I charged it to 100% then went to play a game and then watch part of a movie. I would say it was on about 1 hour to an hour and 15 minutes, and it was down to 60% battery, is that about right. I figure if I keep playing I would have 2 hours 15 minutes to 2 hours 45 minutes?

Batteries degrade over time, and there are other things that can cause them to lose life quicker. I would suggest purchasing an extended battery from a store, you can usually pick them up anywhere.

I have a second battery I just bought off a guy here for $2 but I haven't even put a charge to it. I was just wondering if that is normal performance from a psp battery.

I get insane battery life on my PSP, with my standard and with my extended battery.

You should definitely be getting more than that, I'd say it's time to get a new battery.

Wal-Mark has official sony extended batteries that are great.

Here's a good deal as well.

I am going to have to do something eventually, but for now I have two batterys that are 2.5 hours each. The only thing that worries me, is that the psp won't play, just plugged in unless the battery is up, and it still drains.

Just buy a new battery. You could always try the AAA battery mod if your up to the task. The battery is toast anyhow so you have nothing to lose.
