PSP Charging Problem

Ive found that when my PSP is plugged in, and I go to play games sometimes I get the red charge light going green, and it says "Charging Complete" in the battery information.

Also whenever I use the web browser and the wireless is active, it goes onto battery instead of mains for some reason.

Is this normal? And does anyone know why?

Tell me how I know if it is using battery or mains and I'll tell you what mine does.

power light green means its running off battery, power light red means charging.

Mine shows the green light, but shows the power status as "External - Charge Complete" which would imply that it is running off mains. Given that I've played games and used the web browser while charging the PSP, I think that this is just false reporting in the power management module, not a fault with the PSP hardware.

But it does seam to pause the charging. The percentage does not go up. Not sure if it goes down.

For me, it's fully charged a battery whilst playing games. I haven't tested it charging while using wireless.

It's an odd effect though isnt it? Sustained memory stick access sometimes does it as well.

I still think it's just that the power management module in its OS isn't reporting correctly. The hardware seems to work fine...
