    What do you mean? It gets there and then it just stops?

    I've the AC adapter plugged in and the 'power' LED is orange. I checked the 'Battery Information' and it showed 47%. About a few hours later, it still shows 47%. Seems like the battery is half dead?

    i'm guessing the battery needs replacing or check to make sure the mains charger is working, sometimes plug sockets can get a short fuse and damage electrics, i have surge protectors for all my electricals because of this.

    Finally realized what the problem is. It's my AC charger. It's not an original charger but I do not know why it will never charge the battery fully. I used the USB charger today and was able to get the battery to 100%. This is strange.

    An "original" charger? Meaning a third party charger? I didn't know they existed.

    I always use the USB connection to charge my PSP Slim, although sometimes I use the PSP Phat charger for both the Phat and the Slim. I'm just too lazy to use the Slim charger that's tucked away in a draw somewhere, but it works all the same.
