    Manufacturer: Capdase
    Site: Buy from Capdase
    Price: $5.99

    Overview : Holds up to two UMD game and/or movies or holds one UMD and up to two memory sticks. Cases are even stackable.

    Quality/Usability : The protective case is available in two colors, black and white. It can hold up to two UMD movies and/or games in separate compartments which features a swivel design. A clear cover lets you see what’s in the top compartment, while the included labels can be attached to the side of the bottom compartment for easy identification. To access the disc(s), just swing open the compartment and turn the unit over to remove it.

    Whats great about this case is that you can attach multiple UMD cases to each other to create stacks that hold four, six, or more UMDs. All you have to do is just remove the clear top of the case you want to attach to the bottom of another, and snap them together. You can separate them again, but it may take a little force to take them apart.

    Another great feature about this case is that each case also comes with an optional foam insert shaped like a UMD that is capable of holding two Memory Stick Pro Duo/Duo cards. So you can hold one UMD and up to two memory sticks or two UMDs. Whichever is to your likings

    Conclusion : This has to probably be the best design I have seen. Its nice, sleek, creative and very easy to use.

    MisticAudio OTG Series PSP Case
    Manufacturer: MisticAudio
    Site: Buy from MisticAudio
    Price: $32.95

    Overview : High quality leather case with storage for extra UMD and two Memory Stick Duos. Also features built-in stand and extra smooth lining.

    Features :
    • Play thru design
    • UMD/Memory Stick storage
    • Built-In stand
    • Magnetic closure
    • Soft Lining

    Quality/Usability : If you have read my previous review on Capdase's Leather S-Bracket Case, this case is pretty much similiar. The OTG case features a secure magnetic closure on the front and back. The interior of the case is lined with a soft velvet lining. On the flap of the OTG case, it houses two slots for memory sticks.

    The PSP slides into the OTG leather case from the top. The PSP is held tightly in place with all the buttons easily accessible. Only problem is once the PSP is in the case, accessing the PSP memory stick is a little hard. To access the UMD door, simply unsnap the buttons similar to the Leather S-Bracket Case. On the black flap, it houses a little pouch that can hold a UMD of your choice.

    With the PSP in the OTG case, the comfort of holding the PSP is very comfortable. Its not bulky at all. The front leather flap serves as a good protection as well as a stand.

    Conclusion : Overall, the MisticAudio OTG PSP Case is a very well made leather case considering it has two memory stick holders and a UMD. Its a little pricey but than again, its a leather case. The case provides a good amount of protection front and back. If you plan on putting memory sticks onto the underside of the front flap, I suggest getting a screen protector because it has a potential of scratching the screen. ...

    Logic3 Sound Grip
    Manufacturer: Logic3
    Site: Buy from Logic3
    Price: $34.99

    Overview : Logic3 Sound Grip, a portable speaker system which incorporates handgrips to ensure that PSP won’t slip out of hands during gameplay.

    Sony’s PSP fits into this Sound Grip, maintaining elegant style, design, and contours the console. Sound Grip allows easy access to all controls and has ports for earphones and power. Includes stand, batteries and carry-case.

    I know most of you are probably mad about the internal speakers on the PSP with how low the volume is, right? You're probably looking for a way to boost up the volume so you can hear, right? Well than lets start and see if this is the right product for you.

    Features :
    • Portable Speaker and Grip for PSP
    • 1W RMS (0.5+0.5W) - 2 Myra speaker drivers
    • High Quality Class D amplifier
    • Mains / Battery operated - 2xAAA batteries (supplied), or can be used with PSP AC Adaptor.
    • Pass through ports for Power & Earphones
    • Stand for display
    • Case to carry Sound Grip, PSP console & accessories.

    Quality/Usability : The Sound Grip comes with a carry case as well as two (2) AAA batteries. The look of the grip is sleek and form fitting with the PSP. The PSP secures itself to the Sound Grip by plugging into the power and headphone jacks but there is also a clear plastic latch that goes ontop of the PSP. This latch is spring operated, so you'll have to hold the latch up when inserting the PSP and when you let go, the latch places itself right above the PSP. The latch as openings for the IR port, USB and UMD door button. There is a big opening on the back of the grip which allows the UMD door to open without having to take the PSP out. Whats great about the Sound Grip is that you have the ability to charge the PSP through the grip as well as the inclusion of the headphone jack which is located on the back of the grip.

    You must be wondering how it feels in the hands. I must say, the Sound Grip feels very comfortable. But than again, it all depends on how you hold your PSP and how big your mitts are. All buttons are accessible when it is placed into the Sound Grip. Only thing not accessible is the memory stick slot. The power switch and volume controls are located at the bottom of the PSP.

    The speakers themselves are a whole lot better than the stock speakers on the PSP in terms of volume. The clarity of the speakers unfortunately arent as good as the PSP's stereo speakers. As with any portable speakers, if you set the volume very high or to the max, expect sound distortion especially with the volume set high on the Sound Grip and on the PSP.

    Batteries are placed on the right side of the grip on the other side the where your PSP battery would be. When turned on, a blue LED is shown on the front, above the Logic3 logo.

    Also included is a stand to hold the Sound Grip and PSP. This is great for those who want louder sound for watching movies but at the same time wanting to relax without holding it the PSP.

    Conclusion : Overall, this is a very good product for those looking for portable speakers to boost up the volume on your PSP. The design is well made and very comfortable in the hands but lacks in stereo quality sound. But for those who are looking for a boost in volume, I suggest getting the Sound Grip.

    Logic3 2.1 Sound System
    Manufacturer: Logic3
    Site: Buy from Logic3
    Price: $79.99

    Overview : Logic3 Sound System, a combined portable 2.1 speaker system and recharging docking-station designed exclusively for Sony’s PSP to create a ‘mini theatre’ to play movies or music.

    This system produces astounding sound using a high class amplifier, deep bass sub-woofer and 3D surround-sound circuitry to pack a punch more powerful than its compact size suggests. Includes mains adaptor, carry-case and line-in cable.

    Features :
    • 2.1 Sub-woofer Speaker System
    • 12 Watts RMS
    • Operates from AC Adaptor (included) or Batteries 4xAA (not included)
    • Internal 3D surround sound processor
    • Docking station for PSP re-charging
    • Blue soft-light illumination
    • 3.5mm Stereo line-in for playing other audio devices like MP3, MD, CD player. etc
    • Dimensions: 104 x 278 x 38mm (H x W x D)
    • Weight - 550g
    • 3.5mm Stereo Line-in (Cable provided) to allow gameplay , or play back of other audio devices including MP3, CD player, MiniDisc etc.
    • Carry Case for Sound System & PSP console.

    Subwoofer - 2.5” Woofer 4ohm :
    • 6 Watts RMS

    Satellite Speakers - 30mm full range speaker 4ohm :
    • Neodymium aluminium speaker cones
    • 6 Watts RMS

    Control features :
    • Blue LED Power indicator
    • Volume up/down
    • Power on/off
    • 3D Surround Sound on/off

    Quality/Usability : As you can see, Logic3 used a folding design for portability and compactness. When the Sound System is unfolded from its compact form, the subwoofer (middle speaker) folds down and reveals the dock which includes headphone jack and power jack. A big factor when it comes to using the Sound System to watch movies is that it comes with its own AC adaptor to power the speakers as well as charging the PSP at the same time. Another great feature is the in-line jack. If you're not using the Sound System for your PSP, you can hook up your iPod, MP3/CD player or audio device and use it as a speaker system.

    Now onto the audio. With the addition of the subwoofer, the bass is alot louder. The sound is clear and crisp. The Sound System features a “3D” button that sends sound to a processor that causes it to have a surround sound effect, which works nicely. Just like any portable speaker system, its not suppose to be as your main sound system so dont expect to be using this at a party or anything. Putting the speakers to the max does distort the sound a little but at the same time, is very loud.

    As this is a portable speaker, whats another way to power the speakers? Of course, batteries. The speakers take four (4) AA batteries, which arent included. I tested the speakers to see how long they will last. Mind you, I tested them on and off whenever I need them. Battery life running on 4xAA batteries is approximately 15-20 hours. This outlasts your PSP and probably even your MP3 player.

    Conclusion : Overall, this is a pretty good portable speaker system especially with the subwoofer. With this, your PSP experience would not be the same. The battery life is excellent, the compatibility of using other audio devices with these speakers are great and the nice sleek look is a PLUS. Only thing hampering this product from getting a 10 out of 10 is the size. Its so HUGE. Not to mention the HUGE price tag it comes with, $79.99. It would of been better if it included a remote. I can only dream right? So if you're in the market for portable speakers and have the extra cash to dish out, I suggest taking a peek at this.

    PSP 4800mAh Emergency Charger
    Manufacturer: PEGA
    Site : Buy from Brando
    Price: $22.00

    Overview : This Emergency Charger contains a 4800mah lithium battery. It connects with your PSP console externally and providing more than double battery life.

    Features :
    • Store energy in the lithium battery with the PSP AC adaptor and then supply the power to the PSP game console at any time
    • ON/OFF switch
    • LED indicator
    • 4800mAh lithium battery
    • Size : 75.3 x 80.2 x 17.8 mm
    • Weight : 117gm

    Quality/Usability : You would charge this like you would with your PSP. You can plug your PSP AC adapter to charge the battery pack or use one of those USB power cables. On average, it takes about 1-2 hours to charge the battery pack completely. When charging, the LED will be red. When its done charging, the LED will be green.

    Just like my review for the Large Capacity External Battery Pack w/Cliphook, this battery pack features and ON/OFF switch. When in use, slide the switch to ON to power the PSP. When not in use, slide the switch to OFF to conserve battery power.

    For maximum portability, this comes with a plastic belt pouch that clips onto your belt.

    Conclusion : This is probably the largest capacity battery pack I have reviewed. This is 4800mAh of power! Although it is a little big in size, it does come with a plastic belt pouch to clip onto your belt to carry around. If this plastic belt pouch is like the ones used for cellphones, these wouldnt last too long on a normal daily use.

    Another good feature is that the battery has 168 hours of stand by. So when its not in use, it will store the energy.

    Conclusion : This is just like any other battery pack. Nothing special and does its job. Just charge the pack and use when you need it. If its low on battery, just charge and reuse. Simple right?

    Capdase Luxury Hard Case
    Manufacturer: Capdase
    Site: Buy from Capdase (Black) / Buy from Capdase (Silver)
    Price: $25.55

    Overview : Hard case to protect your PSP. Holds two Memory Stick Pro Duo's on the cover flap. Includes a leather wrist strap. Available in Black and Silver.

    Features :
    • Anodized aluminum case
    • Soft touch rubberized back holder
    • Ultra lightweight
    • 360 degree free angle cover
    • Direct replace UMD
    • Setup stand for playing movie
    • Provide the memory card slot * 2
    • Approx 85g

    Quality/Usability : Another case released by Capdase. Unlike the previous Capdase cases I reviewed, this is aimed more at protection wise and is user friendly. This case is similar to the Logitech PlayGear Pocket case. Besides the difference in looks wise, the Luxury Hard Case is smaller and lighter compared to the PlayGear Pocket, not to mention it has a "door" that opens to access the UMD drive as well as two slots to store your memory sticks.

    Whats great about this case is that the lid can actually flip open completely so that its not at a 90 degree angle or half folded down. This can somewhat be used as a grip. The case also can be used as a stand to watch your PSP movies.

    The bottom/back of the case has a rubberish feel to it but at the same time, having a hardness to it. This prevents the PSP from moving around. The Hard Case also has two little pegs that go into the holes on top of the PSP to provide an even more sturdiness. The memory stick, POWER button, USB port and UMD button are all easily accessible when in the case..even with the lid closed.

    The memory stick slot themselves are a little sturdy when you place the memory stick in them. They fit well, but if the sticks arent fully in the slot, they can easily fall out with a little tap. Especially when you have the lid folded all the way.

    The case comes with a black leather wrist strap.

    Conclusion : Although the case looks nice and smells like brand new sneakers..there are some flaws. When the PSP is placed into the case and closed, I had a hard time trying to get the cover open. The memory stick slots was another flaw as mentioned above. But there was also the good such as the UMD door that flips down to allow the UMD tray to open as well as easy access to the memory stick port and all other buttons without having to take out the PSP. Its a bit pricey for this case compared to the Logitech PlayGear Pocket which retails for $19.99.

    Intec Recharging Dock w/USB Charge Cable
    Manufacturer: Intec
    Site: Buy from Intec
    Price: $9.99

    Overview : Display and charge your PSP with Intec’s Recharging Dock Station! Place your PSP in the cradle and maximize your gaming time by charging your PSP and your extra battery simultaneously. This charging station keeps your handheld system secure on your desk or night table. This cradle is also perfect for desktop gaming, allowing you to sit the unit on your desk while you play or watch movies! Designed & styled for the PSP handheld.

    Cradle charges your PSP and has en extra compartment to charge an additional PSP battery!

    Features :
    • Charges battery and PSP when not in use
    • Transfer data from PC to PSP using USB cable (included)
    • Charge PSP and battery without the use of the dock
    • Blue LED light indicates charging
    • 3 inch x 1 1/2 inch (W x D)

    Quality/Usability : The recharging dock is molded specifically to hold the PSP along the bottom of the device. The recharging dock measures approximately three-inches wide and one and a half inch deep. The base of the Recharging Dock also has four rubber grip pads to prevent the dock from sliding. There is a support bracket on the back of the dock holds the PSP up. The clear plastic centerpiece also illuminates to blue when the Recharging Dock is being powered and charged.

    The recharging dock recharges the battery in your PSP when the system is not in use. You can also power the PSP when you have it placed on to the dock. The power port is located on the back of the dock.

    While the PSP is charging on the dock, you can also transfer data from your PC to the PSP without worrying about the PSP dying on you. This is great considering one cable does both the transfering of data and charging the PSP.

    Conclusion : The dock does a great job of displaying movies, is that what its suppose to do? HEHE. It would of been nice if it gave us the ability to adjust the angle. The dock itself is not portable-friendly due to the size, so you'll need a backpack or something to carry it. The most useful thing is that the cable has a mini-B USB cable as well as a recharging cable at the end. Without the dock, you can still transfer data and charge the PSP if you are near a computer or if you have a laptop with you. For the price alone, its worth it just for the cable. To me, the dock is an added bonus.
