I got a new battery but it's the wrong size, too fat. It did fit as long as I held it in place. So, I was able to start up my PSP and it still works. The power cord doesn't however. It did nothing when I plugged it in. On closer inspection I found out my long lost cat from back then must have chewed on it. I'm sending back the battery and ordering a slim one plus a new cable. That should do the trick. It was amazing to see all those games on that little handheld. I had already forgotten about them.
Don't send back the battery, just get an extended battery cover: https://www.ebay.com/itm/152024440279
