It probably won't work. The PSP needs to have a data connection to USB charge (for some unknown reason). It will not charge off a generic, power only USB port. I have a portable USB battery pack that will charge my phone, but not my Go.

If you have a computer available, and you have your USB cable then you can charge from the computer (it takes longer, but at least you can get a charge).

Nope, as you need to go into USB connection in the PSP XMB, and if it's dead you can't.

The iPhone charger won't fry your PSP Go (USB voltage is standardized, and is pretty much the same in all devices), but it won't charge it either. PSPs won't start charging until they establish a USB connection with the powering device, and the iPhone power cube does not emulate a USB bus controller. If the PSP Go has no power, then you need a PSP Go AC adapter to charge it.  There is no other way.  If the PSP Go still turns on, then you can connect it to any device that can communicate with and power a USB peripheral to charge it; including a PC, game console, or even a digital cable/satellite box or TV.

HAHA @ all you, i use my power cube all the time, just put it in USB mode, the cube does not need to emulate USB functions, as long as it is in USB mode on your pspgo, you will have no problems

cool that works but it won't help the OP as he said the PSP is completely dead, so he can't put it in USB mode.

Man I hate that. My PSP was dead one time, and I only had a USB cable, I was too mad.....I think a simple Firmware update can allow for charging w/o the USB enabled. The USB is already tied in with the main charging source, just have to have a way to unlock it to were it can be activated once the USB cable is plugged in.

Moments like these remind me why I love my PSP-3000 and its removable battery.
