    Hello everybody,

    I just got a passport, but I found my charger output is only 5V - 850mah. It is pretty slow charging (almost 4hrs).
    I changed to use my Nexus 7 charger (output 5V-2A), but it is not much better (around 3h30m).

    May I know your passport with original Charger take how much time for charging? And maybe the original charger will make the battery usage time better/ per charging?

    Thank you guys.

    Best to use the charger they provide.....

    That said I've been using the PlayBook charger with my Z10 for close to three years now......

    Yes. The original one is the best.

    Playbook charger is the best charger to use.

    The Playbook charger works great for me as well and definitely speeds up the charging.

    What we got here is failure to communicate....

    It may depend on your region, but our Passports came with larger chargers than the 850ma. I don't have one in front of me, but I think they are 1300ma.

    If you are using a charger not made by BlackBerry, it may not be wired to signal it is a higher output charger and the phone will only draw about 500ma from it.

    The Playbook chargers are probably the best and can be found cheap.
