Do Hacked PSPs Drain Battery?

    I know that flashcarts kinda drain the battery of a DS quicker than a regular cartridge, so I was just wondering if playing games off the memory stick on the PSP reduces battery more so than a UMD does.

    Thanks!

    AFAIK Nope. [​IMG] It is still functioning as a normal psps since normal psps can play games off the memory stick with games bought off the psn.

    They actually use less energy if you're loading ISO's from a memory stick vs UMD. The only time it'll drain a little faster is loading emulators that are using the 333mhz clockspeed but they still aren't using the UMD's so it evens out.

    shamer is right, the overclocking drains your batteries, as does sound (of course), and faster reading speeds if you have a modded psp-2000/1000.

    CFW is amazing, compared to the old days of TIF hacking, DevHook, etc...

    The brightness and CPU speed also affect the drain rate. The higher the brightness the more battery it consumes, and the faster the speed the more battery it consumes. I don't think hacked PSPs drain more battery though, it's about the same as the UMD.
