Pros: I've had this battery since March 12th 2012 (I'm writing this review on June 15th 2012) and I don't even have to think about charging my PSP even after eight straight hours of game play. Even after eight straight hours there's still around 30% charge left on the battery so if you ran it down to 0% it would last about 11 hours total.
Cons: No real cons for me, some people might consider the "bubbled" battery door a con but I actually like it, it makes the PSP easier to hold (I use this battery in a PSP 3001 4g running 6.20PRO-Cf3 custom firmware).
Other Thoughts: This is the largest capacity battery that I've seen that I can be sure of that it's an actual name brand (that brand being Sony) so I know it won't explode/burn inside the unit effectively killing your PSP like those knock off "No name" Chinese imported batteries that are floating around.
If you own a PSP and you're more than a casual gamer I highly recommend adding this battery to your PSP accessories. For $20US you couldn't ask for anything better.

Pros: As a previous reviewer described, it has multiple plugs (unlike what is pictured). The cable I received had Mini-B USB (PSP Data), a DC plug (PSP Charging), and an iPhone/iPod connector (I think). Also, there happens to be a warning flag to not use both data plugs simultaneously on it.
Cons: (Minor) I don't have an iPhone/iPod, nor do I intend to ever get one or use that feature of this cable, so this was unwanted.
(Major) The PSP plug quality. After 2-3 weeks, the data connection to my PSP is simply unstable every time. (During file transfers, the PSP screen would often show "Please wait.." instead of the steadily moving read/write indicator in USB Mode.)
I have a clean desk and I've used short extension cables to stabilize the USB to PC plug, but the problem is the plug for my PSP. I had stored the cable by draping it on a plastic hook, so the plug wasn't likely to be physically damaged.
The biggest problem with this, is that I have a 32 GB Memory Stick PRO Duo, and that cable slows down any kind of file transfer operation, and has, at times, fully disconnected (while sitting *almost* perfectly still - I was using the desk, after all). I also had transfer errors due to this, so I had to scan the device almost every time I connected it.
Other Thoughts: I *really* wish I'd known that any ordinary USB to USB Mini-B data cable would do the job. I don't care about the charging component. After this cable stopped working properly, I first used one from an external hard drive & then one for a smartphone, and both of them worked without any connection instability. Long file transfer operations are working fine again with a different cable. A cable I already owned before ordering this :/
I don't have the packaging anymore, but I do remember being a bit puzzled when I got it from Newegg and it was so different from the description.

Pros: Car charger, pretty inexpensive but here's why..
Cons: Useless screen protectors, useless "headphones", not really sure what the rubber UMD holders are for considering theres a couple UMD slots in the carrying case.
The headphones are the worst kind of quality as far as plastic and I wouldn't be surprised if the speakers were made of plastic, lol. Just don't buy this expecting quality components. I couldn't even use my headphones, read below.
Other Thoughts: Ok, basically the reason I bought this kit was because I needed a car charger and the case was a nice bonus for pretty cheap. The screen protectors are so useless its not even funny. There's a sticker on the front for whatever reason, that you have to peel off but when you do, all of it sticks to the plastic leaving sticker and sticker residue that is next to impossible to get off. Mind you both of the protectors were like this and I threw them away. Next, the headphones if you can even call them those.. One of the ear buds was down at the joint where the two wires split off so I couldn't even use it without breaking the ear bud off the wire completely. Garbage. I hope it just a fluke in the set I received, because it was quite frankly a joke. Also the plastic case, barely fits my PSP-3000 and even then it pops up a bit and you have to close the case over it anyway. Overall I would not recommend this kit to anyone because you could just get the car charger and save yourself some mon
