    I have a 1200mAh and am wanting to uprgrade but iv'e heard that finding the offical batteries are pretty hard. I found a bunch on ebay like this one: https://www.ebay.ca/itm/For-Sony-PS...808851?hash=item23a0833593:g:95QAAOSwwXRcdSMX and https://www.ebay.ca/itm/New-3-6V-36...679882?hash=item5209bcb34a:g:K2wAAOSwQeha8qCt but iv'e heard that buying third party PSP batteries especially from China isn't a good idea, does anyone have any experience with buying third party batteries or know of a place to buy quality PSP batteries?

    FYI I have a PSP 3000.

    Yes!
    I would also like to know. Just got a new 2000, but the battery had already expanded.

    I have to ask about this too. Strangely enough 4 doors down from me someone actually did a garage sale on a sunday, they had a psp 1000 with no battery inside, along with a still open but unused FF4 game and a FF1 game too.

    I've been aware that the OEM batteries on the PSP tend to get funky, bloat, die. I don't want cheap chinese shit either. I saw something about the Cameron Sino battery being a 1:1 for power consumption and made now. Would that be a wise choice or finding a brand new old OEM PSP battery?


    That said if I were to try and CFW this thing or something as it also came with a high speed 8GB memory card within it, would that take a pandora battery from the day or something smarter happened since? I've not had a PSP since shortly after Peacewalker failed in sales with all those lovely pirated copies tweaked off Konami ages ago.

    I think all you need is some files on the Memory Stick if I remember correctly. Been a few years since I've done it, but this guide seems alright. https://gbatemp.net/threads/how-to-softmod-hack-your-psp.293978/

    Loved PSP 1000. Best portable ever! And UMD discs was amazed and beautiful design. Missed it already. Now, Sony isn't making any portable system anymore after PS Vita. :(

    To purchase a battery is very easy -- Ebay. If you don't have one for some reason then it might be a little bit difficult to find one. Try Amazon. An Ebay and an Amazon re the only ones to find them, I think.

    I don't it came with it removed because the old one was showing bad signs so it was pitched by the last owner and used on the wall adapter. Problem is the PSP is kind of stupid because it won't allow a system update without a bttery even plugged in. It has 6.37 on there, 6.61 is on the memory card that was included as the guy bought a nice 8GB high speed one and it has some PS1 games on there already too which is a bonus. Seems the system works fine so far, got my network settings in, menus all good, etc, just no battery so I'm blocked from a few functions.

    That's why I asked about Cameron Sino vs OEM battery from Sony that's new I can find, either case around $10 on ebay shipped.

    Cameron Sino is a reputable brand, as are Patona, Tera, and WBHV or however you spell that...

    ... the problem, apart from ensuring you're not getting a fake of the "fake" or Sony*, there's also the issue of buying stock of unknown age - if less-than-original capacities (or removing the UMD drive & cutting the case) aren't issues, the best PSP battery you can get is the one you assemble yourself from an original battery's electronics and a replacement cell

    * how UltraFire became the most laughable brand of batteries, R4 the most laughable name for DS flashcards. and (along with other factors) GameStar the most laughable name for PS2 network adapters

    Well that's interesting. I really hadn't thought about replacing the cell within a battery on that as it never crossed my mind and aren't they sealed anyway so it sounds like it would be a bit tricky. That, and I'd still have to get a battery before chopping into a battery too.
