    Have they released batteries to buy for the Slim yet? Im not looking to make a pandora or anything like that, I just need a Slim battery.

    http://sky2k.com has some. I never bought anything from them so I don't know how reliable they are.

    Aside from a few of the datel batteries, there is no simple hard mod to make any 3rd party/unofficial battery into a pandora battery. The phony EEPROMs are embedded into the main IC and are not writable.

    videogame85:
    I haven't seen the official slim batteries up for grabs anywhere on their own. Just be warned, the sky2k/dealx batteries work decent and are cheap, but they have their problems. For example, when the battery gets low there isn't enough juice to power the microcontroller, so anywhere from 10-30% life the PSP will just halt and shut off because the battery isn't sending the expected data as the controller is not running properly.
