    i have a problem with this fake psp battery from ebay. i bought it cause it's about $11 CND included shipping. and i pandorized my original battery.

    even when the battery info. saids 100%, the orange light still on, meaning the PSP continues to charge the battery. The battery life is around 1.5-2hr with lowest brightness and wifi off. lol.

    i just want to know if anyone else has the same problem. and is it safe to overcharge?

    sounds like you got a very bad knockoff.. my bootleg dealextreme battery charges until full and then the light turns off, it gets 1.5 hours less than a real battery.

    yeah. I'm gonna use this until i get an official battery soon. if anyone has this battery, let me know if it's safe to use. and hopefully people don't buy this at ebay.

    Yeah, it would have been smarter buying at a store. I gotten screwed like that on CD's from eBay.

    Hum. It would be better to pandorize this battery and return your original one to normal [​IMG]
