Here is a quick and easy way to make an USB charger / power supply powered by the wall outlet. This can be used to charge / power a PSP, iPod or any other USB device.
First you need to acquire a regulated 5 vdc wall wart rated at 500ma or higher. The one I used is from an IoMega Zip drive. It has a switching regulator with an output of 5vdc @ 1amp. This is a cool way of making an old wall-wart (plug in power supply) into a useful USB power supply and requires very few extra components.
