I know I can charge my psp with a usb cable so I was wondering if I can charge it using a power bank? I bought one for my ps vita and I love it, but was wondering if I could use it also on psp, I hate taking chords if I can avoid it, any help? Thanks ahead of time for any replies I really appreciate it.

If you're going long enough, you really ought to invest in an outlet-converting power strip...

This. Not just for your PSP, but for pretty much any other electronic device you bought/will buy in the area you live.

Genuine Sony PSP chargers do not need power converters or travel adapters.
They are rated for 100V-240V and have a detachable wall cable.

Originally, PSP-1000 didn't support direct USB charging. Later models added the option.

And non-Go models are kinda finicky about charging over USB, particularly if you let the battery completely drain. Best option for 1000/2000/3000 is probably something like this: https://www.amazon.com/Generic-Data-Sync-Power-Cable-Sony/dp/B00BJPDO6M/

... that plugs into your USB power bank.

(Not recommending that specific vendor, but that kind of cable - with USB at one end and USB/PSP power at the other. Plenty of those still available from many vendors.)

One of the nice features of older handhelds taking batteries. Didn't have to worry about this stuff. Still keep my model 1 GBA around for this reason.

I would rather take 5 seconds to read if my charger is 100-240v than carry batteries around with me. Just my personal preference. Plus I have a multi PSP, DS, DS Lite, 3DS USB charger that I can plug into my laptop which has a 100-240v charger (most laptops do) so one cable plugged into my laptop charges all my rechargable gaming devices (since GBA SP uses the DS charger, 2DS and New 3DS use the DS charger) but my Vita.

To each their own. But when my interest was at its peak for handheld gaming, it was always during traveling when charging would sometimes be difficult, vs picking up a quick 2 pack, or carrying some spare batteries.

I do the same with my Xbox One controllers as well. Instead of battery packs, I buy a bulk supply of AAs at Costco. Those controller battery packs wear out to damn fast anyways.

I got a third party set of battery packs for my XB1 controllers on clearance, $10 for two packs and a dual charging dock. I get about 10 hours of life from them and they're still going two years later. I consider that a good investment. Normally you're right though. The official play and charge kits are trash even the 360 ones.
