    Default Thinking about getting a 'Power Brick' for your PSP? Don't.

    Pelican makes this shittacular product:

    http://www.gamestop.com/product.asp?product_id=801938

    It caused this.

    What the shit? It cropped the title of the thread.

    Man if I was that guy, I would be contacting Pelican and throwing around the world "Lawsuit" in the hopes of getting at least some free shit for that. Thats ridiculous.

    Strange. I bought one for my PSP and have used it. Yes, the top DOES get warm, but nothing THAT hot. Looks like he just had a bad unit. I LOVE my Power Brick.

    At the very least, it needs to be reported to Pelican so they can do a product recall.

    If the problem happened to TWO of his units, there are very likely other faulty units out there, and need to be pulled before someone gets seriously injured. I know I won't be recommending that to anyone from now on.

    I like their System Switchers. I was hoping to get a Power Brick.

    Also, it cut off your title because phpBB translates quotes as ". Next time use two apostrophes or leave them off completely.
