    I've had this PSP since January, bought it new, didn't play it much until about Feb. because I had no memory until then.

    I take good care of it, I take it off the charger as soon as it's charged nearly every single time.

    I have it on Pro C Cfw, and now the battery meter is all of a sudden stuck @ 100%.


    I've reinstalled my CFW to no avail, and I'm slightly worried my battery is crapped out faster than usual for whatever reason.

    Any places online I can buy an official sony battery? just in case.

    not sure but make sure that you have no plugins that can hijack battery status.
    you can test it by disable the all plugins (XMB/GAMES/POPS)
    let the battery drain and see if it still stuck at 100%

    You need to fully drain it as it sounds like it's fallen prey to something seen in the old days of hotswapping batteries. The old method to fix this was to discharge the battery using a light bulb (get two strips of wire and a small bulb from an old torch or something, and discharge all the charge. Then once it's totally drained charge it up from scratch)
