    Uh, I'm gonna be getting one of those crappy little LCD screens (like this ) that attach to my PStwo and i wanna make my PS2 portable so I can play GH anywhere (Yes. MAJOR GH fan) Since the power brick changes the house's AC to DC, if I attach only a battery, I should be okay, but in your opinion(s) or based on what you know, what volts and amps do I need the battery to give? My Idea: get a BUNCH of AA batteries (I dunno... 10? 20? connected to each other?) use a transformer to adjust voltage as necessary, and a transistor for amperage (but i'm not sure, i have soldering skills, not electronics skills. that's why i want to learn about electrical engineering in college)
