Sony is to release a new battery pack for its portable games console the PSP that claims to be able to double the operating time of the new Slim & Lite version of the machine.
The power cel, dubbed the PSP Extended Life Battery Kit, is actually thicker than the one included in the revised Slim & Lite model, robbing the machine of its smooth and straight rear. Owners of the original PSP, however, will be able to use it without any cosmetic side-effects.
It will arrive at US retail some time in December and will retail for $44.99. So far there's no word on a European launch date.
