Sony offers better battery for PSP Slim Sony Corp. has developed a battery that provides longer play time for the newer slim model of the PlayStation Portable (PSP) console. Released after being shown off at E3 this year, the slim model of the PSP already offers longer battery life than the original PSP model, but by Sony's estimates, this new battery will easily double the amount of time the PSP can be used on a full charge.
For a handheld device, the PSP console has a UMD which includes a mechanical motor for games and video content, as well as providing very decent graphics performance for a handheld device. All of this requires enough juice to run, and many gamers did originally complain about the performance of the PSP battery compared to other handheld gaming devices.

The new PSP battery pack> ships to North America in the middle of December and will cost about $45. Of course, its exactly the same size as the original but provides around 2,200mAh of power.

The high capacity battery is not the same size as the stock battery. The high capacity battery is thicker than the stock battery and needs a special lid to fit inside the Slim PSP. The special lid is sold with the battery.
