If you want to charge the Go when it's out of power or while it isn't in USB mode, you will need a proper charger, like the actual Sony PSP Go power brick or I used PowerGen Dual USB Port 2.4A AC Travel Wall Charger (NOTE: only works in the port meant for Apple devices).
HOWEVER, you must know that with this cable the USB Go will not play audio while it is plugged in. So even though you can charge while playing if you use one of the power adapters I mentioned above, you won't be able to hear anything, even with headphones in. It looks like the cable is making the system think you have it in the PSP Go dock, hence it shutting off its normal audio output.
So functional, but with an important caveat.
TIP FOR THOSE EXPERIENCING DRIVER ERRORS WITH WINDOWS ON A DESKTOP:
Try plugging the cord into the back of the computer rather than one of the front/top USB ports. Worked like a charm for me.
The Power Cord is a great option, too. Why, you ask? Well, I have a laptop, and when the power went out for about 6 hours last month I was stuck with nothing but my laptop to bring me comfort and joy...or so I thought. I felt like playing my PSP but the batteries were almost drained. Solution? Hook up the cord to the USB port on my laptop and use the power cord function to recharge the batteries! It worked like a charm, and I ended up playing games and listening to music until the power came back on again.

I haven't had any issues and it connects and charges without issue. No issues with the cable length.
