I've never bought from Dealextreme, but I heard it sells stuff really cheap, but it's really slow (which isn't a big deal). Anyways, does anybody have this exact battery? I'm looking to buy a Tool battery for my PSP-2000, but I don't want a bad battery that could ruin my PSP. And is Dealextreme reliable and do they ship to the US?

can't comment on the battery, but i have ordered from dealextreme several times and always had good service, and the shipping is a little slow to the us, but not terrible

I think I've got the one in the original post, I got it from E-Bay rather than Deal Extreme, but it came from Hong Kong and has almost identical markings. It did the job for me, got CFW onto my PSP, but it does feel a little lightweight. If you're planning on using it a lot, either for yourself or friends, I'd suggest looking for a slightly more robust one. Also, I think if it's for the PSP-1000 it means you won't be able to put your battery cover on when using it on a 2000.

Re: 0ld8oys comment, there is a comment at the bottom of the Deal Extreme page that states it can't be used to play games as it forces recovery mode. If that's something you want, look at his link.

I think you can use it as a regular battery as long as the PSP's already booted up or in standby, just not when you're starting it up/turning it on.

I've ordered the battery in the OP, but I can't comment as it hasn't arrived just yet.

Just stick a Time Machine IPL on the MS and it'll work as normal. Remember every time you format the stick you need that IPL reinjected.

    also gonna install twilight menu in my r4 flashcard
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    One thing that just occurred to me.... The sound on the 2600 sucked less back then the harsh sound we hear now is from infinitely better speakers we have now, back when the 2600 was new speakers produced a almost muffled sound, like CRTs made old graphics look slightly better.
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    I wonder if I could recommend that to some emulation devs that perhaps the sound could use some smoothing out to simulate those old TVs
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    I think a few of the early systems could benefit from that, at least up to the 8 bit generation, by the 16 bit generation I think TVs had gotten a lot better in almost every way
