There are many other brands of batteries that you can purchase that are designed to work with your PSP.

As with anything else that takes batteries, you can expect recharge the PSP battery often. The PSP battery is capable of lasting different lengths of time depending on what you are using your PSP for. If you are not using the screen of the PSP and just listening to music then the battery life lasts quite a bit longer than if you were watching a movie or playing a game. Without use of the screen you should be able to listen to music for up to 10 hours at a time but game playing and video watching may be closer to 6 hours. Having an extra battery for back up power is always a great idea. Make sure you pick up your extra battery for your PSP so you are never stuck with a dead battery at a time in which you would like to enjoy your PSP.
