    Since switching to 5.50GENB my battery lasts two days max, normal play. On M33 it lasted for a week. Any tips? I'm using powersaver plugin but still nothing.

    Try completely draining your battery, then recharging it completely. Doing this every so often'll help with battery life...or so I hear.

    I've never had a battery last for more than 8hrs, even with sound off/lowered and that was with the basic psp slim battery, not the upgraded one. So 2days sounds about right. But the fully draining and charging shouldnt be a problem with batteries now adays, that was an older issue, but maybe sony is using poop-tastic products.

    I think draining to 0 and recharging is calibration process for nikel based batteries (not sure) and I believe NDS and PSP uses Lithium. I think with Lithium, the case was that it's better to charge it whenever you can and not at empty.

    Put your clock speeds back to default?

    (Although firmware should be equivalent in terms of charge life if you're having issues just go back to 5.00M33-6? No reason not to now)

    As I said, before battery life is small if you have a default battery, and even then the other batteries may give an extra 50minutes to 2hrs.

    5.00 M33 PHAT ran at 8hrs with min. sound (traded PHAT, after creating pandora battery for SLIM hacking, then bought a SLIM)

    5.50GenB2 Slim ran at 7.5hrs with min. sound
