 No.  You can not use the battery from a PSP in a Nintendo DS.

 The answer is still no.  The specifications (meaning voltage, etc.) needs to be the same.  

Would you rather try to save 4 bucks and try to frankenstein your DS with a wrong battery, or spend 4 bucks and prevent your 120 dollar device from pooting out?

you may but the specs need to be the same and you have to make an adapater
but it would be better with a flash light or just buy a new battery they have gone down cause of the dsi release
