    Hi

    Im off to the states next week and want to take my UK PSP with me. Does anyone know if I need a particuar charger/adaptor, or will a basic plug adaptor work OK? The last thing I want is the PSP to explode on me!!
    Any suggestion or comments would be helpfull.

    cheers.

    The one ive seen today at Dixons comes with a mains plug with various adaptors, but with a usb cable. I suppose this would work just as well?

    Any universal power supply will work as long as it can output at the right voltage, wattage & polarity. I use my Dell Axim X50v charger with no problems & a universal charger although the PSP only charges when it's set to 3.5v and not 5v – the charger must be outputting too high & the PSP must have some sort of cut off protection internally.

    Look in a Beltz or other discount store when you get there - far cheaper than buying something here!

    Has anyone used this USB cable/recharger from cdwow(I have a £5.00 voucher to use) http://sib1.od2.com/common/framework11.aspx?shid=0592002E I'm trying to find out if it's capable of fully recharging the PSP battery? That would be a good temp solution for me.

    CDwow also sell this one which does fully recharge the PSP battery within 3 hours but it costs a few quid more http://sib1.od2.com/common/framework11.aspx?shid=0592002E

    Any comments appreciated, really miss my PSP and want to get the bugger chrged up again:(

    The PSP power supply can connect to pretty much any power outlet world wide, all you need is the adapter to plug it in the wall.

    Check your power supply mine says 100-240v AC 50/60HZ, get a travel plug and you will be sorted.

    Decided to go ahead & order this one, can't really go wrong for 99p(used my £5 voucher) with free worldwide delivery:) Now I hope they hurry up and send it, want to get my PSP powered up again, some great titles coming out for it now & I've still yet to delve into SOCOM.

    Tetlee I was actually just about to PM you and suggest you get a USB charger for your PSP. I use one and although its quite a bit slower at charging, it works really well :thumbsup: as you say, you can't really go wrong :)

    [Note, cdwow doesn't seem to allow direct links so I'll describe how to find the one I bought]

    Try looking in cdwow.co.uk, go to the games section, then the accessories, about half way down the list on the right you'll see a 'USB 2 in 1 Power Link Cable' for £5.99 delivered, don't think you'll find much cheaper than that(it's a USB charger though so as Dan mentions, it'll be alot slower).

    Hey Dan, have to meet up for another race of MarioKart DS soon, haven't managed find anyone online since the last time we played:thumbsup:

    Buy a charger when you get to the US. You'll get a better deal out there.

    P.S. Like this one at Wal-Mart which has the correct US plug on it for less than £10 ($15).
