    Why have you posted the same question in two threads?

    Never heard of the site until now, but having searched on google I've found these two links:

    http://www.psp-hacks.com/forums/f126/scam-psp-sites-t235491/
    http://flippa.com/auctions/62856

    Seems that they're a drop shipping company (according to the second link), meaning that whether you can trust them will depend on the reliability of the suppliers that psppandora.co.uk are ordering from (unless of course they just steal your money). There are sites out there that sell batteries for as low as £4 (e.g. dealextreme/focalprice), so considering that this (probably) isn't being shipped from the UK your dad's been ripped off.

    One person in the first link said that they got their item after 10 days, so I wouldn't be too worried for now, but as I said there isn't a lot of info to go off on.

    Just FYI, it is possible to make your own pandora battery. One method involves using an already moddod psp to run a program which overwrites your batteries bootstrap (yes, the battery actually has one) turning it into a pandora battery. You can then use it to mod your PSP. Once it's done, simply use the same program to turn it back into a normal battery. It's very easy and safe. Great since it's free, but not everyone has access to a second PSP, especially one that's already modded. The second option is to make your own. However this requires opening up your battery and soldering it. Great if you have a spare battery lying around though it is a bit destructive. Just thought i'd let people know that there are alternatives to buying a pre-made pandora.
