Is there some actual 'talking' going on when I plug into a computer that doesn't happen from a wall socket? I've charged the device on my work PC before, and I don't have the drivers/software installed there.
What you want is a good (UL listed) PSP AC adapter. The kind that DOES NOT have anything to do with USB. The kind that plugs into the AC adapter socket on your Reader. The reason I'm suggesting you go with a certified PSP AC Adapter is that cheap uncertified electronics have been known to catch fire and that includes power strips too.
