    You don't need a BlackBerry branded charger to charge a BlackBerry...it's not like it's an iPhone with its own unique port so you have to buy theirs.

    Gee whiz, glad that I've owned quite a few different BlackBerrys since I got my first smartphone and all the chargers work with each BlackBerry.

    Are they different than the BlackBerry branded ones that came with my z30? (I thought these bb10 ones were also rapid charging)

    I can top this. Our local WalMart has had 4 PlayBook Rapid Chargers since the launch of the PB. (the magnetic ones) After all of the other stores marked them down and blew them out, Walmart followed suit, sorta. They originally sold for $70. Most stores cut them drastically. I think I bought one for $20 or less. This store has them marked at $65. They've been in the Clearance aisle for years and will probably never be sold.

    My bad on the placement of the thread. It was a mistake. All I was saying is, Walmart wasn't carrying any BlackBerry items.... cases, chargers...... anything !! they used to but, it's literally all Apple and a small amount of Android stuff. Really odd.

    Ha! I got Futureshop to price match less 10% to Staple. I pay $7.50 each. I bought like 6 and gave some away as Xmas presents.

    That change happened a long time ago for my local walmarts. The last time I saw anything BlackBerry related at Walmart was right after the PlayBook fire sale happened. They had a bunch of goodies for the PlayBook, and I bought the magnetic rapid charger and the nice leather folding case for dirt cheap off of their clearance rack.

    I've never seen anything BB10 related in a walmart.

    Walmart Canada sold Z10s and Q10s. They yanked all BlackBerry related items some months ago when the got their three rows of Appleness. The kiosk, and Apple branded items. Even the Android selection has been reduced.

    Some walmarts still have clearance cases for BlackBerry phones for $9. The authentic ones. I saw the pb case as well. Think it was the leather like sleeve for $19 but back to the chargers, strongly recommend the 1.8 rapid chargers. You can do a search on ebay and even amazon. Recently bought a package of 3 from each for $9 total. Ebay even had free shipping. I have 5 left as one crapped out charging an S4 (not mine)

    Yeah, I bought some stuff at Staples. The problem now is how do you price-match something that is no longer carried anywhere else?

    I was in a few Walmarts in winnipeg this week and saw Z10 and I believe q10 or q5 on display as well as an old 9360 or something. Not a lot of BlackBerry branded accessories though, that's for sure.

    I actually like Walmart for household supplies, but i've yet to have had an informative experience in their tech department. Other than knowing how to unlock cabinets, the staff seem more concerned about what time they get off. I'm not basing this on one experience, but rather years at many different stores. Honesty, BlackBerry at Walmart does more harm than good. Try asking about any operating system. After a few minutes of Candy Crush testimonies, you're left wondering why you ever asked?
