Is it safe? It seems to work fine and all my games work on my PS2 fat. What I did was take out the cable with the power plug from the psp's AC adapter then plugged it in my PS2 fat.

Using a PSP Power Cable on the PS2?
No it's not safe.
#1 - It's the wrong voltage level. PS2 expects 8.5V and PSP Power supply is at 5V.
#2 - PS2 consumes significantly more power than PSP and so the PSP's supply is going to have a lower current rating (Current * Voltage = Wattage)
Look at the supply it should say something along the lines of Output: 8.5V - 5A for PS2 and Output: 5V - 2A for the PSP. I don't know the exact numbers but what I listed for the PS2 would be able to supply 42.5W of power at 8.5V, while the PSP supply can supply about 10W at 5V. You'll not likely damage the PS2, but you're likely to at a minim burn out your PSP power supply trying to use it on the PS2.
Go find a power supply that provides 8.5V and has a current rating that is at least whatever the current rating is listed for the output of you existing PS2 supply.
Note that the PS2 Slim external supplies (early slims had external supply) is most likely a lower current rating and most likely is not adequate for your needs as well.
But all I am plugging is a cable without any adapter. My games seem to run fine?
I am just plugging in this part of the psp cable without the adapter.. this cable has no sense of voltage does it? only the adapter or the internal parts of the PS2? I thought this was just a standard cable.
The PSP cable doesn't have one of what you have pictured.KING OF POP

Yea my PSP-2000 AC adapter has a removable cord for the outlet, then the power adapter with a cord connected for the PSP's end.
Though what TAZ said makes sense, I see no logical reason the cable that connects from the power supply to the outlet would be able to handle the current. I could be wrong though.
Well it seems to be playing my games fine.. I'm just afraid my ps2 will burst into flames or something. (is that even a possibility?)
