So, a review of the dealextreme PSP Slim battery cover.
As found at this link, they sell a battery cover for the PSP-2000 (PSP Slim), that allows it to cover a PSP-1000 (PSP fat) battery.
By the way, I'm using a Invisible Shield brand screen protector on my PSP Slim.
The price was pretty cheap, I paid $3.66 CANADIAN, it's a little bit more than that in U.S. funds^_^
They sent me a cofirmation email the day after I placed my order. it took a week for them to send me an email telling me they shipped it. And 2 weeks after that to actually get it. 3 weeks from order to arrival... kind of slow. (Keep in mind this is to Canada) but the shipping is free.
The packaging is basic, as you can see there's not even anything printed on the back.
Luckily the bubble packaging is not sealed, so it's easy to slide it open. The inside of the covers are a little sticky & have a bit of gunk on them:
I took a kleenex & tried to wipe it off but it left kleenex residue over it. Kinda gross. You can see a bit of the laminating spray on the inside, but it's not like you're gonna see any of this when the cover is on your PSP.
On the outside, the covers look great. They're glossy, meant to blend in & emulate the gloss of the PSP-2000.
obviously, these ones only come in black, wish I could get a white cover,
Comparing my PSP-2000 cover to the fat one: since my cover is white, it's hard to see in the pic, but the hooks & connections look very much the same between the 2 covers.
My PSP-1001 battery in my PSP-2001:
And with the new cover on:
The new cover fits really nicely. It actually fits more snugly than my official cover!
As can be seen, there's a bulge similar to the old PSP-1001, which makes the PSP Slim feel slightly lopsided... but it's not that bad. Also, the PSP Slim does feel a bit heavier with the old battery in it.
But the tradeoff in extra power could make it very worth it:
This is my old 1800 maH PSP-1001 battery. There should be even longer life is using the 2200 maH Stamina battery.
