Details About PS VITA External Battery Option

Many were disappointed at the fact that Sony didn't learn from the mistakes of the PSP by only incorporating 3-5 hours battery life within the PS VITA, however Sony seem to have a solution.
Sony's focus for TGS 2011 has undoubtedly been the upcoming launch of the PlayStation Vita. During its pre-show conference, the publisher revealed that the battery life for the new portable will last somewhere between 3 and 5 hours during normal gaming usage. 

For some gamers, that amount of battery life is unacceptable. Fortunately Sony is preparing an answer. In our interview with SCEA Worldwide Studios President Shuhei Yoshida, we finally received confirmation that Sony is in fact developing an external battery for the Vita.
