Don't use generic battery chargers, PSP gets angry

For the love of your PSP, ladies and gentlemen, do not lose your PSP charger cable that Sony gave to you. Even worse, don't replace it with some generic Radio Shack battery charger cable. Your PSP will go Hulk on your ass and explode. Seriously. Bob Nixon, a Florida PSP enthusiast, related to his PSP battery exploding: "It had been charging for over an hour when it just went off." He lost his official charger during a trip and was using a generic Radio Shack charger. A shame.

First, the scent of something burning. We all know the smell of something plastic on fire -- it stinks and the black smoke sticks to the wall like nicotine to the lungs. That's where the smoking analogy ends, since the PSP battery exploded so forcefully that "it flipped the PSP off of the nightstand." There you have it -- get an official replacement from Sony or make super-duper sure that an off-brand charger will work properly with your PSP.
