Great little charger,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: BlackBerry PlayBook Rapid Charging Stand (Accessory)
This charger is great! I love it, the PlayBook gets alligned to the pins on the charger and it snaps into position. Job done! To removed, just lean the PlayBook forward to release, couldn't be easier! Saves the USB connection too, as these micro USBs have a tendency to get damaged, or weakened easily. That's not a produc fault, but just the nature of the USB port.
Other reviewers have complained that the charge isn't as rapid as they had expected, but it is quicker than the standard charger issued with the PlayBook, and since I charge mine up at night it makes no difference. I never knew that if you use the PlayBook while charging, the majority of the power from the charger goes into powering the machine and not charging the battery, so the battery even when fully charged won't last as long. Something to do with milliamps. Anyway, this charger pumps enough power into the PlayBook so you use it and it charges the battery properly. It looks really with the PlayBook on, it is weighted correctly and feels like it is, which a quality product. I whole heartedly recommend this charger to anybody with a Playbook. In the UK, the cable it comes with (or at the very least, the one I got), a powerlead which feeds straight into the charger itself and not into a transformer first. Even better!!
