    Amazon has a travel rapid charger for $23.99 + free shipping

    Not as good as the clearance I found at Radioshack, but not bad.

    I agree. Having a spare is good especially when it comes at a good price.

    That's a very reasonable price, and Free Shipping, seals the deal!

    Just sent one to a friend. With all this talk of busted usb ports this charger is the way to go. Cheap insurance if you ask me.

    Read the review for the stand before buying. If you decide against the stand model, someone suggest that you get a travel and a tablet stand.

    Rapid charging stand is even less expensive. Vendors must be clearing out all their stock on the expectations that this is a dead product, or something.

    I can't recommend this product. After awhile the springs on the charger get stuck inwards and won't charge the playbook.

    Already did, there is squat for cheap. Been hunting for a few days now off and on.

    Actually, that's not completely true. If you have $50 you can get a rapid charger AND a convertible case from http://www.thesource.ca/estore/Produ...roduct=1749038 in a bundle. I figure you could turn around and sell the case for $25 and get the charger.

    Thing is I already have that case...just got it too. Otherwise I would have bought the package myself.

    Thanks for the heads up. My last rapid charger stopped working in less then a year, I have been using the one that came with my PB but it has a bit of a short in it and not very reliable. I have been waiting for a sale. I have been getting nervous that I would be without my PB!

    Considering RIM said themselves that the PlayBook will indeed get a BB10 OS update in 2013, for the tablets to suddenly stop charging on it's own peripherals because of an OS update is just not a logical conclusion. If indeed this actually happened, and the tablets could NOT use their chargers, it would be a massive engineering failure and the end of RIM for the backlash and media push-back would bury them for good. It's not going to happen...just buy the charger.
