A solar-charged PSP battery? That'd be nice

PSPIf you’re anything like me, you hate the fact that batteries, at some point, will go dead. It is a hard fact of life that we all must deal with, especially if we use portable gaming systems. Maybe there’s hope, though.

Over at DealExtreme, they are now selling an interesting little gadget, eloquently named the "1800mAh Self-Recharging Solar Battery USB Charger for PSP 1000/2000." It costs $28.76, and appears to be larger than the PSP itself.

While being able to charge my PSP battery while on the beach or climbing a mountain sounds awesome, I still can’t help but wonder how exactly this thing is meant to work. It appears to just sit alongside the PSP and connect via the power port. Also, what the heck is that strange monacle-looking arm for, and why on earth is the acronym "USB" in the name? The product’s page does nothing to answer to these all-important questions.

Solar Power

Power cord

Is it a high tech weapon?
