    If anyone is interested I have made a battery mod for PSP 2000 & 3000 models that is pretty simple and straight forward. Also included items you made need for the process in the description of the link. All the best gang! :)

    I figured it might of been helpful to give a video tutorial on how its done.
    I don't know whats the problem with that?
    Besides I also included items you may need on the video description.


    But its no issue I could post pics with text on how the process is done later on.

    I want to use an old lypo from a broken phone, does it need the PCM for that battery in-between the original PSP PCM and the battery? Or can I just solder the two positive pins to the PSP battery PCM, it's a 3 pin battery.

    I kept the original regulators of both batteries, each knows what it's best for the cells and the system

    (PSP street batteries actually don't have electronics outside of the thermometer, iirc)

    Oh! Then I'm totally leaving out the phones PCM. Phone batteries have overcharge protection inside so I shouldn't have a problem. Also do you think AA batteries would fit once the UMD is removed? I have rechargable Energizers that are 2500mah each and 3 would be 3.75v, so they would work I imagine.

    I did this a couple months ago with my $10 psp, i was told the umd reader was broken... so i pulled it out and decided to shove a battery in..
    I know it being held in with hot glue looks awful, but i didn't care enough to remove the UMD door and glue it properly
    and i used 2.5mm headers and jumpers to make it easily detachable.

    That looks hella good. So you have 3 pins on that battery right?

    There are three pins on that samsung battery, but i only used the pos and neg pins.
    I wired it directly to the psp cell within it's battery, so it should use the protection circuitry of the psp battery/psp

    Most phone batteries have 3 (+, -, thermometer), some Samsungs have a 4th one for external NFC antenna

    If you are using the regular pins of the phone battery (instead of smaller round ones under a sticker, if they exist at all), you're also using the regulator of the phone battery

    Thanks for the tips, both of you. I am planning to do my 3000 in a bit. I'm swamped with projects I'm finishing today and fixing my PSP has been on that list for years.

    I just realized my PSP is a 1001 but that shouldn't matter, right?

    Why is that only giving 6 hours I wonder? I have a PSP3000 that has the official extended battery which can give 9 hours play time on only a 2200mah battery?

    eBay. Got lucky. Someone sold one that had barely been used and it still held a complete charge. This was about a year ago or so. Still works fine now. You can still find them occasionally. And yeah you can get 9 hours play out of a single charge easily enough.
