Great Battery but beware – Service Mode Unbricker Battery for PSP 1000/Phat (1800mAh) Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
Owned for about 10 months ish now and have unbricked several PSP's with it , very easy to use but you need to understand how to create a MMS (Magic Memory stick) otherwise this item is useless except for using as normal battery.
Cons:
It's a little fiddly to know when it's charged as it will occasionally freeze up on the XMB and the battery infomation in system settings may show external and no other infomation. Soultion turn off the psp leave it alone and wait till the light goes out. Dont attempt to use this battery when its not at 100% its likely not to work even in normal battery mode. you will end up with a black screen and nothing else.
Other:
Bottomline:
Great priced hybrid tool and 1800MAH battery but it's tempermental when it works it is really useful but its not its a nightmare.
Other problem is the legs on the body of the battery are a little to big they need filing down to fit correctly.
