View Full Version : PSP 3rd Party Battery Question **please help**

June 8th, 2007, 08:26
Hey I know about this battery from PlayAsia and it looks to me like it's the same size as the original battery and that's all you need to install and run this battery. The battery I'm looking to purchase if all abover assumptions are correct, well the battery looks like this:


I see batteries like this on Ebay claiming to be 3600mah batteries but I'm 99% sure they're fake:

Anyway I'm trying to find a place to buy this battery as long as it doesn't add ANY BULK to my PSP, I'm currently using the 2200mah Stamina one and I would like more juice. So can anyone point me in the direction of where to buy one, I searched on google for a while and no luck. I just want to make sure it doesn't add anymore size to my PSP and where to buy it since PlayAsia hasn't had it since FOREVER.

No, its acutally not the same size. it sticks out the back. you use an expanded size battery cover for it.
i use an external battery pack which has 8000mah in it.
also, those have a tendancy to overheat, lose capacity when charged too much, and explode.
The best to go with is the 2200mah made by sony for $60. They are the only ones that dont overheat or explode and have a stable capacity.
Heres the link to that one:

I wouldn't trust it, because it's 12 bucks.

Well I might get it off a different site but does that battery actually fit into the PSP without having to put a new battery cover or anything on there.

Iīm testing a 3rd party battery of 3600 Mah called "Fits Sony" but i dont belive in it is real 3600 mah. Waching a 20 min movie drained about 20% of this charge.. but when i played YS 6 for one hour it changed the charge from 50 to 45%... very, very strange... after some days of testing i will post some results.

Does it fit into the PSP without any changing of the battery cover issues?

June 20th, 2007, 01:53
Yes, it fits.. its the same size of a official Sony 1800 Mah battery.

Well ... after one day it fall from 35% to 0% in minutes ! And wen i tried start the PSP the backlight is shutdow but PSP not.. and freezes... itīs doesnīt sound good.
Itīs the first charge but i will give another chance to it.

Im using the official sony 2200mAh battery, it was ike 20$, brand new. Go with that, or buy two, they're worth it.

Guys I don't want to sound rhude because I appreciate the fact that you came into my topic and actually posted in it to help me, but I mentioned in the first and second posts that I am currently using the 2200mah battery. I'm just looking for the maximum power and life from a single battery that fits in the PSP without changing the battery cover. Oh and by the way Saracchini I think you may have been played with that battery you got, it sounds like the battery is corrupted or something.

Any high powered battery that claims to be 3600mAh or higher will be thicker than the normal battery size. The highest mAh i've seen from my affiliates that does not have a thicker battery is a 2600mAh


So if you're looking for a battery that does not stick out and want to use the original battery cover, either stick with the 1800mAh, 2200mAh (both from Sony, or get the 2600mAh.

Thanks that was exactly what I was looking for, I think I will buy this one off of ebay, it's not too expensive either.

There is an image of the battery wich i bougth:
But the letters are golden and the company is "Fits Sony" not "X2".
Anyway the products are the SAME, and it doesnīt worth buy things like this. The battery have about 4 hour of gameplay, my original 1800 mah is better ! :mad:

I thinking buy a Sony original 2200 Mah battery... but is so hard found it in Brazil.

Most after-market batteries are overrated in terms of capacity.

I HAVE THE 2200mah SONY BATTERY, but yeah I think the one yo bought is like a "cheap" version, no offense. The one I linked to was reviewed here at DCEMU and the pics match, it's supposed to be good, I'm buying it soon.
