With big batteries, comes big bulk. Adding the battery and battery cover does add some bulk to the back of the PSP. The battery cover works for both the original PSP and PSP Slim. This big battery gives an approximate 48 hours of play time and 168 hours of stand-by.
However, upon testing battery life, the PSP Slim lasted a little longer than its predecessor. The original PSP lasted about 44 hours of play time while the Slim lasted a little more than 45 hours *settings where set to its lowest brightness, lowest volume for gameplay as well as screen off and normal volume for MP3 listening. Fairly close to what Dragonplus claims. But if you're using the battery at your normal playing brightness and volume, battery life will drastically drop to about 15-18 hours. Setting it to the highest setting in both brightness and volume, you can expect about 12-14 hours of play. Yes, that is a big drop.
I personally prefer official licensed batteries or products in general but sometimes these 3rd party batteries work just as good as the official products. So far, I dont think I have experienced any major problems with these 3rd party batteries. Makes you wonder why these 3rd party manufacturers can release a battery that is 3x's the amount of the original but the actual manufacturer that makes the device cant release their own official 3x batteries.
Conclusion : Overall, the Max Power X5 Battery 3600mAh (Slim) worked for both original PSP as well as PSP Slim. Play time hours were a little shy of what Dragonplus claims to supply (48 hours) *settings where set to its lowest brightness, lowest volume for gameplay as well as screen off and normal volume for MP3 listening. The Max Power X5 Battery 3600mAh did feel a little cheap in quality. Price for the battery is fairly reasonable. I still favor OEM batteries.
