    I bet it's caused by those cheap batteries from China.

    Damn that sucks, Sony better give him a new one, or they will most likely come up with some BS excuse.

    Imagine being able to make a program that enables you to connect to a neighboring PSP and cause it to overheat... I think I'd name that program Carrie.

    I keep my PSP in the only pocket in my bag I take to school, hopefully it doesn't light.

    Won't this happen with any lithium battery if it gets cracked open?

    No.

    I enjoy cracking open lithium batteries with hammers, screwdrivers etc. and none of them have exploded yet.

    It won't, because it's the Sony [​IMG] batteries that are crappy.

    When Nokia phones started exploding or overheating, at first the official company line was that it must have been down to crappy 3rd party or fake batteries. When people claimed they were using official Nokia batteries, Nokia said the fakes were so good that even Nokia couldn't tell the difference between a real battery and a fake - they even had fake holograms etc. When people said they'd not changed their battery since buying their phone, Nokia said resellers must have been taking out the official batteries and replacing them with these fakes.

    IIRC they eventually did recall certain models though.

    Please, guys, don't do fun out of this.

    That's sad. And I'm afraid this happens with me during class, on school.

    So, actually, what happened?

    Do the Battery was a Chinese Fake battery or a home-made Pandora Battery? (and becasue of that, why do that occured??)
