For the keen gamer seeking that little more gaming time between charges, Sony has re-introduced a genuine PSP 2200mah Extended Life Battery Pack. This is the same long life PSP battery Sony discontinued back in 2008, but has now got new packaging.
If you are one of those Sony users that have been trying to find an extended battery solution then you have seen what happens when using no name batteries. If you get one that works at all, you can run the risk of overcharging because often they don’t have any protection against overcharging. This leads to many of the battery problems that some PSP users report.
This long life battery pack is compatible with the PSP 1000, 2000 and 3000 models. As the 1000 model has an 1800mah battery and both the 2000 and 3000 models have 1200mah batteries, this 2200mah battery is ideally suited for the 2000 and 3000 PSP models. This is based on the percentage increase in battery life.
The 2200mah extended life battery provides only an extra 400mah to the PSP 1000’s 1800mah battery, providing only an extra 22.22% overall increase in battery life. When compared to a whopping 1000mah boost to the 2000 and 3000 1200mah battery, that’s an increase of 83.33% boost in battery power for those two PlayStation Portable models. So I would highly recommend this battery be used for the last two models mentioned. This battery cannot be used with the PSP Go or PS Vita models.
When you first charge this 2200mah battery, Sony recommends that it is charged fully for between 3 to 6 hours prior to use for this extended battery to receive a full charge for maximum effect. After the first charge future charging times could take up to 5 hours depending on remaining battery power. Charging times will take longer via a USB port.
To maximize battery life when using this 2200mah extended life battery pack. Remember the more things that you have turned on while in use for example wifi usage, high screen brightness, volume level and UMD usage, the shorter play times you have until the battery has to be recharged.
Sony is a leading supplier of mobile technology and is constantly listening to the desires of its PSP users. Gamers around the world look to Sony as their primary source of high quality mobile gaming consoles and accessories. This new battery offers the quality and reliability you’ve come to expect from all Sony equipment. The Sony 2200mah extended battery pack is the longest lasting PSP battery on the market.
