I dont recall seeing an official release date but Sony have indicated it may be out either this month or next. For what it's worth GameStop UK has the 30th of this month but that's probably a place holder date as no other UK retailer have it for preorder as far as I can tell. GameStop in the US has it down for the 30th of April.

Anybody know if there is a good portable charger that will work with the vita available in the uk? From researching online it looks like there's many that aren't compatible with the vita.

If you have a car the car charger is pretty useful.

I'm going to try my ted baker one later that was a tenner off eBay and works excellently with iPhone... Gets about 4 0-100 % charges on the iPhone and connection is via USB so hoping it work with vita.

I shall report back later!

^ Doesn't look like the proporta ones (Ted Baker) are strong enough to charge it either.. sucks, they are good for all other things though but maybe the Vita is just tooooo thirsty!

I don't know if it's the same thing as the OP is on about, but anyone know when the official Vita AC Adaptor is coming out. I have a USB cable, but it takes a donkeys age to charge from the PC, and the plug USB chargers I've found don't supply enough juice for the Vita to acknowledge it :s

Hi guys,

 

Thought I would resurrect  this thread as I picked one of these up last night at Schipol airport.  Whilst it is a little on the pricy side, it works a treat and not only does it charge the vita nicely, but also my Samsung Galaxy S2, my ebook and basically everything I have tried which charges via USB (with the exception of ps3 controllers).

 

All in all its a handy little piece of kit.

 

:)

i like the idea of it, but it's a shame they didn't "integrate" it into a hard case for the Vita, that would have hit the nail on the head!

I couldn't find it on the Shop To site for some reason. Regards Play.com it took four days to be delivered. If it was a new game that I was anticipating and really looking forward to then that wouldn't be good enough. However for the portable charger I'm not too bothered. Mine arrived today. I'll check it out over the weekend. I'm wondering if it will work with my iPhone and iPad.

I just found it on the Shop To site. To be honest I'm happy to have waited a couple of days extra to save £7. http://www.shopto.net/PSP/ACCESSORIES/PSPVAC19-PS%20Vita%20Portable%20Charger.html

No it doesn't. It a separate item and you have to carry it separately. It's not a battery pack but a portable charger. You connect the Vita to it to charge. Once the Vita is charged you disconnect it. I don't know if the Vita can be played whilst it's being charged by the portable charger as I've not tried it. My Vita is fully charged right now so I can't use the portable charger yet. You have to use the power supply and USB cable that came with the Vita to charge the portable charger. It will flash red whilst charging and then green once charged.
