Divineo's new 5-in-1 charger stand for PSP does it all

There aren't usually a lot of devices who can follow through on their claim that they can 'do it all'. Sure, being able to vacuum and cook up a delicious waffle is interesting, but then your carpet smells like a waffle, too. This is why we're pretty interested in the potential of this new PSP charger stand -- it does it all!

While your PSP charges on the stand, you can listen to music and even play stuff on your TV. It comes with built-in headphone jacks and multi-card slots. It's essentially got all the functionality of a non-charging PSP, and it's just under $17. If you're looking for a charging solution, this might be your cup of tea.

Official external battery charger found [Update]

It looks like Sony's releasing an official external battery charger. At least, that's according to photos unearthed from SCEA's press site. An external charging solution is great for those that have more than one battery -- quite possibly because of the purchase of a new extended-life battery. No official details on price or release date yet, but we're sure that Sony isn't really rushing to get this peripheral out into the wild.

[Update: The only difference between this and a previously released charger is that this Sony official peripheral is also compatible with the PSP-2000 series. At least, according to the packaging. We're pretty sure the original chargers will also work with the new systems. The old battery chargers do not work with the PSP-2000.]

The power to charge your PSP ... on your wrist!

Oh no! You're in the middle of SOCOM: Tactical Strike, and as you're about to infiltrate the terrorist stronghold, you see your PSP's power indicator flashing. You haven't reached a checkpoint yet, and you certainly don't want to give up now! What are you to do? Act like Batman.

A cute new device in Japan allows users to charge their PSP (and other mobile devices) simply by connecting it to a handy wristband. The inconspicuous accessory will provide an extra 3.5 hours of battery life for your PSP when you need it. We're hoping that future versions of this peripheral will allow you to shoot a grappling hook, spider webs, and lasers. Considering this is from Japan, we're nearly certain it'll happen.

Adorable PSP-shaped battery charger

If you're always on the go, chances are you have a spare PSP battery. But how does one keep it charged? An external battery charger, like the PS-P Battery Charger (pictured above), should do the trick. PSP GadgetZ has taken some pictures of this interesting peripheral--quite possibly one of the cutest we've seen yet! Although this mini-PSP can't play games, browse the web, or play music, it can charge your PSP batteries. And that's all we want it to do.

Unfortunately, we've been unable to find a way to purchase this accessory. carries a not-as-cute official Sony battery charger for a pricey $30.

Portable power pack provides persistent playtime

The Ansmann Portable Power Pack isn't necessarily made just for the PSP. In fact, it'll charge pretty much anything you've got so long as it has a USB charge port, which gives it a slight advantage over the other well-reviewed charger we featured before. At 50 bones, this Li-Ion battery pack will grant you 10 more hours of juice and looks to be a great buy for anyone looking to get their gaming on for those cross-country road trips or international flights, although we'd have to mention our reservations at the resulting dialogue with having to stick this squarish peripheral in your pocket during transport ("Is that a portable power pack in your pocket..." Oh, never mind.)
