    I got a new phone yesterday and a USB cable came with it (a universal one that fits most devices) and i thought i could charge my PSP with it so i plugged it in and everything went fine, the red light went on and it charged for like an hour.
    Later when i unplugged it the PSP didn't boot up, not even the light came on.

    It's just the battery right? I can't see how it would be damaged by charging it with another USB cable. [​IMG]

    EDIT: I dunno what happened but when i plugged it into the normal charger and started it there was no problem at all, it booted up perfectly. lol weird.

    Umm...Im not tech genius but I'm pretty sure trying to power one device with another device's cable is a big no no. The Amps and volts delivered to the PSP is probably different then that of charging your phone and I think that will be reflected...

    Anyway, problem is solved. I won't be charging my PSP with that cable anymore! [​IMG]

    A USB cable is a USB cable... It can recharge devices but it's very slow.
