"The PSP battery life sucks!" - Intro.

It's taking some time to pull together all the data on this one. There are lots of different ways to play with the PSP while the DS Lite is pretty much just a game machine. It's necessary to compare the different play modes on both machines and that involves a lot of playing, battery draining, recharging and playing again.

So far the data is showing that the PSP battery (mine is also almost 2 years old) lasts about 4 hours and 15 minutes. The DS Lite battery (5 months old) is lasting around 4 hours and 45 minutes to 5 hours.

In the end, the difference is not appearing significant, but I hope to have full data (with charts, and graphs!) posted soon.

That's a good point. The PSP has multiple brightness settings as well and to make things fair I've been running both machines on max brightness and volume.

I'll make another run through with brightness on the lowest setting and with the volume off. (Assuming I can stand to game under those conditions!) :^)
