Thanks to hackers, the words "portable console" and "removable battery" used to spell "nightmare" for Sony. The battery of the PSP famously offered hackers an easy back door into the console that until then required hard-to-find exploits in games. It's no wonder the PSP Go was a closed system. So what about its younger brother, the PS Vita?
Apparently much easier to get into, it seems. As seen in 4Gamer's literal breakdown of the newest version of the handheld console, it appears that the battery can be easily accessed simply by removing the back cover.
