Make a Battery Pack for Your PSP

This hack will build an external battery pack for the PSP to extend the internal battery pack’s life from the just-a-bit-too-short three to six hours.

Sure, you could plop down a load of cash for some company’s prepackaged external battery for your PSP if you need to extend the battery life of your PSP while you’re on the go.

If you speak Japanese, you could probably figure out how to order the My Battery JET for PSP (http://www.watch.impress.co.jp/game/docs/20050603/jtt.htm), and if Chinese is your cup of tea, the DragonPlus Rechargeable Handle Pad, which turns your PSP into one big controller (http://www.chinapsp.net/Default.aspx?tabid=888&DocType=ArticleView&ArticleID=990).

But, you’re reading PSP Hacks. You want to do something “hackish.” Wouldn’t you rather just grab an old AC adapter and some other odds and ends from around ...
