I have a 1200mAh and am wanting to uprgrade but iv'e heard that finding the offical batteries are pretty hard. I found a bunch on ebay like this one: https://www.ebay.ca/itm/For-Sony-PS...808851?hash=item23a0833593:g:95QAAOSwwXRcdSMX and https://www.ebay.ca/itm/New-3-6V-36...679882?hash=item5209bcb34a:g:K2wAAOSwQeha8qCt but iv'e heard that buying third party PSP batteries especially from China isn't a good idea, does anyone have any experience with buying third party batteries or know of a place to buy quality PSP batteries?

Possibly Amazon, try to check it on that.
Estarland dot com

I bought new PSP battery from J&L game store in New York City l, few years ago. It was working.

Edit: it was official first party battery.

estarland doesn't have any and the ones on Amazon all seem to be knockoff batteries, which I wouldn't have a problem with if they weren't prone to not working very well. Is there a place in Canada online that has them because that's where I am.

No place. The world is now stuck with low quality knock-offs and fake batteries. That is the problem with manufacturers creating their own specialty batteries, instead of using generic easily accessible battery standards.

I'm still hoping for someone to start selling quality replacement batteries for older systems, GBA SP onwards. I'll gladly pay several times as much as what those dirt cheap crappy no-brand ones cost. I have a couple for GBA SP and PSP from different sources, and they all suck.

I'd rather see someone make an adapter that lets you put rechargable AAA batteries in the system. That would be nice. I can't stand proprietary batteries.

I have three official PSP batteries and they work great.

I've heard Insten batteries work well.

Probably better off buying a used PSP with the official battery. At least that way you also have a spare PSP too.

I can tell you from first hand experience that Insten batteries are not that great. My old OEM battery still holds a charge better than one of those.

I would just like one that holds more juice than my current 1200 mAh. Also the clock resets sometimes when I turn my PSP on, does it have a watch battery or something that dies?
