Be aware that it is not designed for the PSP 3000 (nor the 2000 which has the same form factor I believe). The item has clips which are supposed to fit into the screw holes on either side of the USB connector on the top of the PSP.
However the 3000 is too narrow and the clips do not engage. The stand does work for me though because of the silicone skin I've wrapped my PSP in. It adds a bit of thickness and gives the clips something to grab onto. Without the skin, the PSP 3000 could fall out of the stand.
Also note that while in the stand, the PSP is held high enough to allow the use of a typical headphone plug.
I'm sure it would have worked as advertised. It seemed to charge up fine (got a little warm while doing so), and even pass-through charged the PSP while I was waiting. The stand feature seemed especially convenient for restaurants and whatnot. However, the power pack did not survive the first 4-foot drop. The stand, as well as the clamps attaching it to the PSP broke, rendering the thing practically useless. The PSP itself, of course, is fine (they really made the old 1000 models well).
But, for less than 10 bucks, I don't really have any room to complain. Had I been more careful with it, I'm sure it would have provided days of usefulness before one of my boys dropped it. I'm sure it would survive even longer in the hands of a responsible adult.
