I was going threw my old original psp stuff. I remembered that psp only need 5v to charge and operate heck some of them even charge threw a usb cable. so i checked the output power on the only charger i had and to my surprise it was 5v 2000ma (2a) so i cut of the end of the psp charger and spliced on a mini usb cable. red wire on usb cable goes to the white wire on the charger and the black wire on the usb cable goes to the bar wire on the charger. It works great. since this was my only psp charger i took the psp charger end and spliced it on the the other half of the usb cable i used and plugged that cable into the orginal usb wall adapter 1a and that works perfectly fine to. So if you only have one psp charger you can still do this. the only thing different ive seen so far the mk808 seems smother altho i completly lost my wifi signal for a couple seconds but that could have been my router
im not sure the output of the original psp charger that came with the psp dont have any on hand.
but the psp its self states dc 5v 1.2a
doing it this way you can even easily add a on off switch
this is the charger im talking about
if you cant buy a 2a adapter use one of these

Recycling other parts is always a good idea. I've got laods of the general purpose power supplies with interchangable ends. I'd have thought that one of those ends would probably fit the PSP power supply, should you havesome and don't want to hack the cables.
