My kids broke my Playbook's USB port by using the USB charger and using too much force.Bought this charger.Its magnetic and has a great price at Walmart.Using USB charger ultimately ruins the port.This rapid charger is the best option for charging Playbook.
One of the better accessories for the PB is the corded RapidCharger. Attaches magnetically, charges faster than the regular charger while keeping the micro usb port available and minimizing wear/tear on the port.
Cheaper than Blackberry's own site
Convenient and handy.
Uses a magnetic charge port vs usb. This not only provides a rapid charge, but will prevent issues from using the usb port to charge.
This for travel, stand charger at home, the perfect combo for the Playbook.
Amazed more people haven't discovered how great this tablet is. Bridged to a BB phone, this thing is the ultimate work and play combo. Lovin the Playbook!!
I have wanted this charger for a long time but did not have the money. This is a great price.
The BlackBerry PlayBook Tablet - Rapid Travel Charger charges much faster than the charger that comes with a new Playbook and can be used while watching videos using the external video cable or while the Playbook is many of the protective cases that are available. Most cases have to be removed in order to use the other Playbook fast charger that is available. This charger uses another port so it also saves wear and tear on the USB connection that the prepackaged charger uses.
When you can't charge your playbook using your micro plug charger then pick up to this magnetic charger. Works great! Thought I would have to toss out my playbook but now I can charge it again!
We allowed our blackberry tablet to sit for a year because my toddler daughter broke the initial charger port and we had no way of charging the tablet. I had no idea I could have been charging and using my tablet with this charger. I wish blackberry would include this charger in the box with the tablet instead of the other charger. Makes more sense...
My Blackberry Playbook had run down so low that it was unable to charge with the regular adapter that it came with. No amount of trying to stack was able to charge it. I purchased the rapid travel charger and plugged it in and it immediately started charging my Playbook. If this charger didn't work that the Playbook was going into the trashcan.
The charger that came w/our Playbook did not fit the charging port any longer (the little tab inside the port got bent.) We found the Rapid Travel Charger which connects to the Playbook via a magnetic port. Love it and we don't have to worry about anything getting "bent," which would render the Playbook in-chargeable. Decent price, too!
My Blackberry Playbook was dead. The battery had been drained. I tried a lot of different things and then I read about the rapid charger. I plugged it into my playbook and it was up an running within 30 minutes. I thought all my pictures and videos were gone forever. Thank goodness for the rapid charger.
Delivery was excellent. Arrived when they said it would. The name of the product tells exactly what it does. I am pleased.
I should have picked this up a long time ago
Much faster when you only have a few hours and are on the go. Really like the magnet connection. Until you try it, you have no idea how great this charger is.
USB on playbook malfunctioned, purchased the rapid charger and it's great. Obtained product prior to estimated time.
This charger provides a convenient way to recharge my PlayBook quickly while traveling. At this price, it is a great value as well.
Great accessory for the PlayBook and got it at a GREAT PRICE here.
My only "complaint" is the charging cord on the Playbook side of the transformer is a little too short : if I plug it in to the surge protector under my desk, I have to put the transformer somewhere ON my desk for it to connect - would rather leave it on the floor/shelf and only run the small/thin cord on top of the desk.
I use it because my PB is in the Incipio Executive Leather Case, but will also purchase the Rapid Charging Dock/Stand for when my PlayBook is nekkid.
It was my first purchase here and the entire process couldn't have been easier or better.
Charging the Blackberry Playbook is so fast and easy! Product is highly recommended.
Couldn't find this charger anywhere else
