    I haven't used my battery in well over a year. When I went to recharge it, the orange light wouldn't even come on the psp. After reading a little bit I found that it eventually loses some residual charge required to make it charge when connected to an outlet.

    I found a guide that required a lot of equipment that I don't own to recover it. It would have cost much less for a new battery so, with nothing to lose, I tried to fix it with what I have and it worked.

    Equipment: screwdriver, 2 small wires (i cut them off of an old phone charger), and 9v battery.

    1. Pop it open with a small screwdriver (I broke the cover but, meh, still works)
    2. Get 2 wires and a 9v battery.
    3. Find the + and - terminals on each battery.
    4. Run the wires positive to positive and negative to negative (I didn't solder or anything, I just held the wires on with my fingers as it's not like a 9v battery is going to shock you)
    5. Hold for about 30 seconds

    Done, I put it back into the psp and now it is charging

    i think he meant to say that he had a defunct psp battery which wouldnt charge and he fixed it somehow with the above mentioned steps.
    nice going man.
