    I've been having charging problems on my PSP-2000 since I don't have an charger for the console I have to charge it through USB. Luckly I have two wall Mini-USB chargers laying around. Charger #1 I use for my Android phone but has detachable heads so I can swich beteen Micro-USB B and Mini-USB B, the latter being used by the PSP; I also have, charger #2 is an old Motorola charger for V3.

    The problem is that the PSP refuses to charge while I'm in a game. Also with charger #2 it charges for 1 minute, stops, then charges again, then stops... I'm guessing this is an issue with the low output amperage (550mA vs >1A the PSP needs)
    Also as of lately I noticed that the PSP refuses to charge unless I plug #2 charger before #1 which is weird. Any sort of movement I do interrupts the charging progress with #1...
    Is there anything I can do to fix this (besides buying a PSP charger)? Maybe it's a CFW issue? (using 6.39 PRO-B)
