    Hi guys, had an old PlayBook rapid charger that no longer worked so I pulled the base off, took out the little pc board with the charging contacts, put it back together and voila!!! Instant desktop stand for my passport. Perfect width like it was born to fit there and it has the BlackBerry logo on it. Now if only I can put a charger plug in there somehow, it would be awesome. Will work on that one!

    Ive been using the Kidigi universal desktop charger. the USb is in the right place and I can use it with my Stilgut case still on.

    I believe this is the same one.

    That looks good but it seems to sit back at a fair angle, how does the passport sit in it? Is it stable when you press/touch it? How is it for width compared to Passport? I like the fact it can be used with a case on, that is a huge bonus. The Playbook charger is quite weighty and has rubber base so it doesn't slide, would be nice if Blackberry modified the playbook one with the usb plug centralised, easy to do I would imagine.

    With the device naked, it does sit at quite a bit of an angle(although not to far back), with my case it has the perfect angle. It does have a rubberized bottom so it doesn't slide, but it is not weighted like the PB charger. Also requires a micro USB charger to plug into it, so my extra PB rapid charger works perfectly.

    Nice, will look into that if my modification doesn't work. Thanks for the tip.

    Looking like a dremel, and some super glue is all you would need to make the PB charger work. Dremel out the middle so its large enough to just put the tip of the rubber from a charger into the whole, super glue it into place. Viola all set.

    I purchased a Decresent charge stand for my Z10 this has a movable charge port that slides right and left ,I've been using this to charge up my Passport at night ,ive also used it for the Z30 as well when I had it in service, it's great to have one stand that fits all, and it looks like my Classic will be added soon too.

    Nice work OP! Hopefully you can get it to work.

    My PlayBook chargers are still good and in use.

    The new dock chargers that have been rumored to come out for the Classic and Passport look similar to the PlayBook chargers except they have a USB connection.

    I love the Playbook charger weight and angle.

    Hopefully the official Passport /Classic dock chargers can accommodate a case.

    The KiDiGi is great for the Passport. It also comes with a removable insert, allowing a nice fit even with the hardcase attached to the Passport

    The Playbook docks looks pretty good,
    Width wise it is exact. May have to look into breaking mine apart.

    Brilliant. I may have to do this to my old Playbook dock charger. The thing was so unreliable charging my Playbook that I barely ever used it anyway, even back when I used the Playbook regularly.

    I am using DZ dock, which is perfect for my needs. It has a slot down the middle so even if you needed to charge the passport, you can sit the device in there and the provision will allow the charging cable to sit in there

    I am holding out for the OEM one that Blaze has been teasing us with photos about.

    But availability? It's so close to Christmas...I am afraid they won't make the stores in time. Same for the OEM Holster.

    Would have been nice to have the accessories available at device launch, not 3 months later and still not available for Christmas
