    The standard 750mA Z10 charger is definitely too weak to charge and use PB simultaneously. You can charge otherwise, but it'll take forever compared to a standard 1.8A PB charger (which btw is the same thing as BB Premium Wall Charger).

    A couple of years ago, before realising the charger difference, I took my PlayBook abroad trying to charge on the standard phone charger. Bad plan. Even leaving overnight wouldn't bring it to full charge - I spent the (working) week desperately trying to get the damn thing up to a workable charge.

    So as per the advise above, the Playbook charger is essential. Not recommended, essential.

    I don't know about that. If I put mine on airplane mode it will charge overnight on the standard charger. If you have a lot running or your battery is particularly old maybe it won't.

    I have to use a Premium Charger to get my PlayBook charged. My Z10 is much less picky though. Just beware that when your PlayBook dies and sits for a day, you could have a very fun process of getting an initial charge back on it.

    My Playbook was on 0% charge last night, and I used my standard Z10 wall charger. It got the PB fully charged by morning, so YMMV.

    Yeah I have also used my z10 charger over night and fully charged my Playbook -- last night as a matter of fact. It was at 60% tho when I plugged in.

    Few month ago, I bought a car charger, limited to 1A. I plugged in my Q10, that was both playing music and running google maps. Battery charge went slowly down till I stopped the apps...

    No problem with the 2A one I bought later.

    Now I also read that a too fast charge is not good for the battery life expectancy...
