    ok, I've always believed that electronics should always be recharged at the point where they need to be(low battery indicator) but I was wondering, would playing my PSP with full charge with the charger plugged in shorten the life? Alot of times I decide to play with my PSP and when I'm done, I have roughly 2 hours left which is just pushing it because I use it as a MP3 player for my rides to college(Ride time = bit over a hour) and I hate it when I'm half way home and my PSP dies on me.
    So would my PSP's battery lifespan be shortened if I play with the charger plugged on a full charge?

    Info taken from this site: http://www.batteryuniversity.com/parttwo-34.htm

    Code:
    The question is often asked, should the laptop be disconnected from the main when not in use? With lithium-ion it does not matter. Once the battery is fully charged, no further charge is applied.
    It would seem from that site that it causes no loss of performance from running Li-Ion with the AC inserted in a laptop so I would assume its exactly the same for the psp.

    yeh prety much once the batery is charged you just use mains power to run the psp instead of the battery so the charge in it will never go down.
