Sony Slim PSP Battery Pack
Sony today provided a quick boost to traveling gamers with the PSP Extended Life Battery Kit, a drop-in replacement for both the recent slim PSP and the original. The new pack slides into the same slot as the normal battery but provides about 2,200mAh of power. Despite the slim model already lasting longer, the new pack effectively doubles the battery life and provides "hours" more game or movie time, by Sony's estimates.
The new pack ships to North America in mid-December and will be priced at about $45 US; to accommodate the special editions of the PSP, the device includes panel covers both in the PSP's signature black and the lighter silver hue for other models.
