    Alright, so I'm getting a red God of War PSP off of Kijiji (guaranteed CHA since it's a GoW one), but it has OFW 6.10 on it. I'm getting a Pandora Battery off of DX to restore the PSP to a M33 firmware, then upgrading to 5.50 GEN-D3. However, which Pandora is the best one on DX? They've got many on there, but I want the best one.

    I got the cheapest one they had and it worked just fine. A year latter it still holds a charge.

    makes more sense to get one made for a 1000, since 1000 batteries will work for both 1000 and 2000, but 2000 batteries wont work in 1000s

    I think for sake of a longer charge, I'll go with the 1800 mAh one. Thanks everyone.

    Well, I received my items safe and dandy, after 1 month [​IMG] They just take a lot of time, usually.

    For prices like that, it's actually fair. You just don't have to be in a haste, otherwise it's wiser to buy somewhere else.

    for the love of god, dont use it as a normal battery
    its horrible and could cause many problems including hardware (ie* exploding batteries from overcharging and leaking battery acid have been reported form thsee cheapo batteries)

    Please Joe, I'm not an idiot [​IMG]
    I have an extended battery kit for use as a normal battery. I'm just gonna use a Pandora to downgrade firmware, and that's it.

    I ordered there like 4 times, the first 2 times, the stuff came like 2 weeks later, the 3rd time, it took like a month, and the 4th time took like a week and a half. So far, everything they have sent me was legit, and all of it still works

    I've only had one thing not work that was sent to me from DX - a USB SD Micro reader. It was DOA. However, I only paid $3 or less for it, so I never did send it back. I just threw it out. Not gonna raise hell over $3. [​IMG]

    only use it sometimes when my normal is empty but if charging could be bad it's not very smart of them to ship them empty then. cause when it arrived it had no charge at all

    a 2000 battery does work on a PSP 1000...you just need to hold it to the PSP...that's what I did with my 1000

    that's the one i have [​IMG]

    unfortunately the normal battery that came with my psp was dead so the pandora (which doesn't hold a charge as long as official battery) is now my primary :

    well i ordered 3 or 4 times as well but as you might be able to see at their forum there really are many complaints lately ...
    i am not trying to make everyone hate dealextreme, i liked the site pretty much as well but its a fact that they had big big problems ... no clue if its fixed now but i would at least check their forums before i order there again.
