    I wanted to know the homebrew Car Charger has a USB at the end?
    I dont own a PSP Car Charger yet so I dont know what the end is supposed to look like?
    I thought it should have a regular plug like that of the home charger?

    thanks in advance....

    disclamer... you screw this up and u WILL fry ur PSP. i nor any other people take responcibilty for your decision to do this.




    u need to find the pin out on a mini USB plug.. find the 5V and ground. take them wires and then since a car is a 12V system u need to go to somewhere that has ICs and stuff... radiosh@k is a place that usually has em..

    ur looking for a 5V regulator LIKE THIS

    get that.. now on that packaging tells u what pin the input, ground, and output is.. the input gets connected to the car 12V wire where u want.. the ground is a common ground.. the usb and that gets grounded to the car.. the output is what gets connected to the USB 5V wire.

    u will want to get the smallest fuse u can buy there.. RATED amprage not actual size..

    put the fuse inline with the 12V before the regulator.. sodder it all together and use some heat shrink to cover all the bare wires and u should be done..

    I don't know... I wouldn't personnaly do this. Besides, a new car charger is most likely coming to the market soon anyway. Prehaps there already is one. Besides, I wouldn't run the risk of even fingerprints on my PSP.

    u can always buy a car charger, but i purchased this universal thing at target for $20 about a year ago
    it plugs into the cigarette lighter outlet, and it had a 3 prong outlet on it, so u can plug in any kind of ac power thing like a psp, laptop, etc. so it is really useful and i use it a lot

    I wouldn't use much things running out of the ciggerette lighter. I don't want to drain my battery. Just in case, you know?

    No, my Cigarette thing is already used up for my stereo. I just plug it in there, and it supports MP3pro. I have three, 800mb c.d.'s of music. The only time I'd charge my battery would be when the car is parked.
