    PSP External Battery Pack
    Manufacturer : PEGA
    Site : Buy from Brando
    Price : $13.00

    Overview : This is a great substitute if you want to use your PSP even longer without having to spend more money on a spare internal battery.

    Specifications :
    • On/Off switch
    • LED indicator
    • Battery : Rechargeable Lithium Battery
    • Capacity : 1800mAh
    • Voltage : 3.7V
    • Size : 79 x 63 x 31 mm
    • Temperature : 10° C -40° C
    • Weight : 70gm

    Quality/Usability : You would use this item like you would any other electronic device. I charged the item like I would for any device and PSP. There is an indicator light on the external battery pack that lets you know when the pack is done charging. Clipping the pack onto the PSP is fairly simple. Clip the top of the battery pack to the top of the PSP first. Once that is securely in place, clip the bottom of the pack to the bottom of the PSP. Once the pack is in place, plug the adapter into the DC 5v port on the PSP (yellow plug on the bottom right side of the PSP). Once its plugged in, you're ready to use it with extra hours.

    Installation :
    • Clip the extension battery pack to the PSP console tightly and correctly and then plug the power cable into the socket of the console, now you can turn on the power switch to use
    • You can use the PSP AC adaptor to charge the battery pack and no needing to take it out from the console.
    • When the battery which capacity is 1800mAh was charged fully (at this time the original battery is not used) it could approximately last 3 hrs gaming.

    It takes about 1-2 hours to recharge the battery pack completely. This is approximately the same length of time to charge the PSP itself. Once its fully charged, you get an additional 3 hours of play. Unfortunately, after 20 minutes of play, you will notice that the pack will get slightly hot. Like any other battery operated device, this is normal. So do not be alarmed. It will not blow up or catch on fire.

    Only problem with this, it gets in the way of the UMD door. If you need to remove or swap a game, you'll have to remove the battery pack inorder for the UMD door to open.

    As for the weight, you'll notice its there but you wont really notice it when you get use to it and when you're so into your game.

    Conclusion : If you're in the market for extra hours of gameplay, feel free to give this a shot. This will add an additional 3 hours of play to your PSP. Whats great about this item is that it has an ON/OFF button. You can use the standard internal battery and if it starts to die out on you, just flip the switch on the external battery pack to ON and you're good to go for another 3 hours. Whats also great is that the external battery pack can transfer its energy to the internal battery pack to recharge it. So it kinda acts like a power storage.

    For the price of this item ($13), this is a great alternative compared to those internal ones ($35-40). Only bad this is that it blocks the UMD door.

    Nyko Screen Armor PSP
    Manufacturer: Nyko
    Site: Buy from Nyko / Product Sheet
    Price: $9.99

    Overview : Protect the most important part of the PSP with the stylish, easy-to-use Screen Armor from Nyko. The Screen Armor is a detachable brushed aluminum screen protector that attaches to the face of the PSP using two locking clips. The foldable clips allow for an easy, secure fit while providing convenient storage while not in use. The Screen Armor’s design also leaves the action buttons, the d-pad and headphone jack free so you can take advantage of the PSP’s MP3 playback abilities while still protecting the screen. The rubberizes underside of the screen armor helps protect your PSP from scratches, dust, dirt and fingerprints as well as providing slip free protection for the PSP’s 4.3 inch display. The design of the Screen Armor compliments the PSP and is sure to turn heads.

    Features :
    • Protects your PSP display without adding bulk
    • Soft neoprene inner lining
    • PSP buttons and headphone jack still accessible for playing MP3s
    • Easy on/easy off - custom design locks into place, and folds flat for compact storage
    • Designed to fit most carrying cases
    • Foldable clips for easy storage

    It also features :
    • Aluminum Construction - The Aluminum construction provides long lasting protection
    • Lightweight - Lightweight materials add no bulk or weight to the PSP
    • Rubberized Interior - The rubberized underside keeps dust, dirt and fingerprints from collecting
    • Functional Design - Protects the screen while still allowing use of the buttons for playing mp3s.

    Quality/Usability : The design of the Screen Armor is pretty simple. It has an aluminum front with rubber interior and clips onto the front of the PSP with two little flaps on the top and bottom. The top flap has two little nubs that fit into the screw holes, the bottom has a nub that sits in the screw hole and both fit in behind the little silver ring around the PSP.

    The product itself looks great with the polished aluminum front (although I prefer it to be black - matches the system). The construction of it is pretty solid and doesn’t take much damage from anything.

    Once the Screen Armor is on, there’s really no way to get it off besides lifting on one of the flaps. It’s pretty safe to say that if you had it in your backpack or pocket, you dont have to worry about it moving around or popping off. The Screen Armor definitely protects the screen. With it on, the screen is protected like Fort Knox, while the rest of the PSP is left to the outside world and ready to be molested by dust, fingerprints and potential scratches. So dont expect this to protect your PSP from the devil. This only protects the screen...hence the name "SCREEN Armor".

    Conclusion : Overall, this does a great job at what its suppose to do. If you're looking for a complete protection of your PSP, look else where as this only protects your PSP screen.

    UMD Card Storage Vertical Stand
    Manufacturer : Dragonplus
    Site : Buy from Brando
    Price : $12.00

    Overview : The Sony PSP storage stand will allow you to organise up to 12 UMD game discs, so you will always know where your games are. The stand will look extremely cool on your desk with its LED glow light built in (2 AAA batteries required).

    Features :
    • Up to 12 UMD discs can be stored.
    • Supreme blue LED light effect.
    • LED On/Off button.
    • Power Supply : 2 x AAA batteries.
    • Size : 23.7 x 8.5 cm
    • Weight : 188gm


    Quality/Usability : Does what its intended to do. It holds up to 12 UMD disc. Its made of plastic and is very light. Nice little feature it has is the light up (glow). It requires 2 x AAA batteries and has a On/Off button for the light. The LED light itself illuminates from the bottom.

    Conclusion : This is a great item for those who dont have a place to store their UMD discs or dont like to put them into their original case. I personally, dont own or will own 12 UMD disc so I really have no use for this. There are people out there who actually will own and will use this to store their disc into. Only problem is that since its so light, if you were to take a UMD out, the whole thing might tip over if you were to use one hand. A suction cup or something alike would be good to have used to keep the stand in place.

    Capdase Nylon S-Bracket Case
    Manufacturer: Capdase
    Site: Buy from Capdase
    Price: $14.90

    Overview : Virtually identical to the S-Bracket Leather Case and Twins Case PSP case.

    Features :
    • Made of water-resistant nylon
    • Secure S-bracket attachment.
    • Flip up inner S-Bracket for easier UMD replacement.
    • Inner Cushion for Ultra Protection.
    • Belt loop and strap-connectable.
    • Easy installation and release.
    • Use as Theatre Stand.
    • Black color.

    Quality/Usability : This case is virtually identical to the Leather S-Bracket Case (see review), except that is made of nylon and features a zipper closure instead of open sides and a tab closure. There’s no UMD flap on this case, but you can easily flip up the S-Bracket and open the UMD door to change discs.

    This case is also exactly like the Twins PSP case except it doesnt have the accessories case attached to it. The case is extremely light, due to the nylon material, but a stiff material has been added between the fabric layers for extra protection. There’s a belt loop on the back, as well as a carabiner attachment (black carabiner is included).

    Conclusion : Overall, this is a great case. Keeps dust out and protects the system very well. Whats a good thing about this is that you can use it as a stand to watch your movies. Too bad there is no memory stick or UMD slots for storage. If you're looking for an all-in-one which holds the PSP and accessories, check out the Twins case (see review).

    • Detachable case can be used separately
    • Belt loop and strap-connectable
    • Use as Theatre Stand

    Quality/Usability : The PSP case itself is virtually identical to the Nylon S-Bracket Carry Case (see review). The PSP case virtually identical to the Nylon S-Bracket Carry Case and to the Leather S-Bracket Case (see review), except that it is made of nylon and features a zipper closure instead of open sides and a tab closure. There’s no UMD flap on this case, but you can easily flip up the S-Bracket and open the UMD door to change discs. The case is extremely light, due to the nylon material, but a stiff material has been added between the fabric layers for extra protection. A belt loop on the back, as well as a carabiner attachment (black carabiner is included).

    The accessory case is made of the same black nylon material as the S-Bracket Carry Case, but has an interior designed to hold everything you need with a Sony PSP. The lid of the case has two pockets that hold two UMDs in each pocket, for a total of four games or movies. Each disc pockets has a small elastic pocket to store your Memory Stick Pro Duo/Duo. The bottom of the case houses two elastic straps to hold headphones, AC adapter, or any other small accessory securely in place without moving around.

    The Twins case is formed by zipping the two cases together. Each one has one half of the zipper. When zipped together, they connect. To keep the case from flapping around even though they are zipped, there’s a small button that snaps onto the other case. When the Twins case are fully zipped and snapped together, they function as one case instead of two.

    Conclusion : This is a nice all-in-one case. You can store everything and not have to worry about losing or misplacing things. Whats also great is that you can deattach the cases and take whatever you need/want for a light travel. If you dont need the accessory case and is interested in the nylon PSP case, Capdase sells that separately; Nylon S-Bracket Carry Case (see review).

    Capdase Leather S-Bracket Case
    Manufacturer: Capdase
    Site: Buy from Capdase
    Price: $17.90

    Overview : Virtually identical to Nylon S-Bracket Carry Case (see review). Made of genuine leather. Features a plastic bracket that holds the PSP system in place. Easily accessible back to UMD door.

    Features :
    • Made of Genuine Leather
    • Flip-Top Case with S-Bracket attachment
    • Magnetric Closure
    • Openable Back Cover with Hidden Magnetic Closure
    • Inner Cushion for Ultra Protection
    • Available in black, white or pink

    Quality/Usability : This case is virtually like the Nylon S-Bracket Carry Case. Unlike most cases, this case features a plastic bracket to hold the PSP securely. It's very easy to attach the PSP by just snapping it into the bracket. The small openings on the top and bottom of the PSP are filled with plastic pegs to hold the PSP in place. But dont worry, the plastic bracket even has openings for your USB and IR receiver, so you dont have to take out your PSP. You can hold the case upside down and shake it around without having to fear that your precious PSP will fall out.

    The back of the case has a small flap. It allows you to easily change UMDs without having to remove the PSP from the S-Bracket. It's held closed by two magnets on each side that holds it in place. With most cases you have to remove the PSP from the case to change UMDs. This gives one less task for PSP owners to fiddle with.

    To close and protect the PSP, it has a magnetic snap on button on the tab to hold it close. There are also some some extra padding over the screen, inside the flap to protect the PSP from any accident bumps over the screen.

    Conclusion : This is a very nice case. Its very well crafted and very nice workmanship. It may feel awkward at times with the flap dangling. The idea of the UMD back cover is a great idea. Especially for those lazy ones who hate having to do extra work. Everything is pretty much accessible without having to take out the PSP. But the having an opening on the USB is another great idea. If you're in the market for a nice stylish case, be sure to check out the Leather S-Bracket. ...

    Capdase Deluxe UMD Protective Case
    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.

    Features :

    • Exclusive "Press & Take" Design
    • Unlimited Stacking System
    • Removable rubber pad for MS Duo Cards
    • 2 Holder Per Pack

    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.

    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. ...
