Two AAA batteries power the SpectraVideo Logic3 Sound Grip; alternately, you can use the PSP's AC adapter. The Sound Grip has a volume dial and a headphone jack on back (the Sound Grip covers the PSP's headphone jack).
The speaker, while not offering stellar sound quality, certainly boosts your PSP's volume to the point of loudness. This comes in handy particularly with your personal music collection and home-brewed movies, which don't play nearly as loud as UMD movies (the Sony PSP features a sound boost for them). We appreciated the included stand for propping up the Sound Grip for movie watching, but we wish it were foldable so that it would fit in the included canvas protective case. Those looking for improved sound quality--at the expense of a bulkier add-on--should check out the .
Our one major gripe is that the device offers limited ergonomic benefits. Yes, when your Sony PSP is docked in the Sound Grip, it does feel more comfortable to hold. The only problem is that reaching the left and right shoulder buttons with your index fingers becomes more difficult. For example, we started out playing FIFA 06 with our PSP in the Sound Grip, but then decided to detach the accessory because our hands got cramped. Simply put, it felt better playing with our PSP "naked." Conversely, we felt that (which, admittedly, lacks a speaker) actually improved the ergonomics of the PSP.
