Brits Double PSP Battery Life

Extended gaming nirvana from our very own land of hope and glory.

Over the years we Brits have shown we know a fair bit about staying power (interpret that how you like!) and the X2 battery from Datel only proves that further.

Rated at 3.6V and 3600mAh, this Lithium polymer PSP add-on claims it will double the battery life of Sony’s much delayed, yet wonderful portable. This makes sense given the PSP’s battery at 1800mAh is exactly half that of the Datel product and means owners could potentially get seven hours of gaming off a single charge.


Naturally, all this extra power does come with a size handicap, but the impressive styling of the design (which mirrors the chunky left side of the PSP) does look like it could actually make the little beggar more comfortable to hold. Installation is the same as a standard PSP battery since it simply snaps into place.

Of course, the fact that Datel has made the X2 immediately available on these shores (supposedly before the console is even released) suggests that it believes one or two of us may have gone down less than official routes to already get one. Scandalous, who’d ever suggest such a thing!.

Get them while they’re hot from online store Codejunkies for a penny under £35 of your hard earned Great British Pounds.
