got my rapid charger from amazon for $25, worth every penny. Was working on it and got down to 10%, got up charged it while I took a snack break ~ 15 mins and I was back up at 20% or so. I believe it's 1.5~2 hrs to charge from 0-100. And the magnetic connection is awesome.. so easy to plug in n' take off.
I like your idea but some 3rd party developed equipment for my Bold and PlayBook have left a lot to be desired. My first car charger was a Chinese knockoff of a RIM model and lasted one month. Replaced it with $30 RIM and been going strong. The quality of RIM accessories to my knowledge have been fantastic and shows you do get what you pay for.
