Hint for Consumer Reports: PSP doesn't use AA batteries!
The November 2006 issue of Consumer Reports covers electronics and rates rechargeable batteries -- the AA kind. Unfortunately, this picture is out of place (click for full-sized version):That's right, the Sony PSP is the device used to represent handheld game systems that use AA batteries. As you may already know, the PSP comes with its own custom battery, just like the Game Boy SP and the Nintendo DS. I guess the Jakks Pacific Direct-to-TV Spongebob Squarepants handheld isn't sexy enough.

Even worse, it is identified with nickle metal hydride batteries when the PSP battery is of the lithium ion variety (at least according to my owner's manual). That's just shoddy.

Worst of all the PSP is grouped with devices that "are used often". Oh my.

Consumer Reports is one of the weridest things, everyone holds them to a high standard but they lack a lot.
