    Is passport compatible with this technology?
    60% in 15mn is really cool! And it can be really useful. Almost all new smartphones out there will have it. Why not the passport?

    Hummm, so it depends of the brick and the battery too ? I am curious if it will be coming one day to passport owners. It is really a good feature.

    The PlayBook charger can charge it up in about that time frame. The heat produced isn't great for Li-io batteries but I've used the PB charger on my Z10 since I got it and haven't noticed any side effects.

    Voltage In = 9V, 2.5A out


    ...

    I don't think many have a 9V, 2.5A rated "usb" charging adapter.

    How often is the Passport going to run out of juice?
    The Playbook charger charges the Passport plenty fast. Or if you must, one of those common inexpensive battery banks works well.

    I think that should raise worries about battery health

    Not really, why charging more fast your battery can destroy it??
    Usually it charge really fast until 60% and then going to normal until 100%

    I'd have to second this, very few devices (i say devices, not just phones) on the market of anything today use 9V...

    If it were 5V that could make more sense and in all honesty that wouldn't be much different than most "rapid" chargers that you can go pick up at Staples or your local electronics stores... (2.0A, 2.1A, 2.2A)

    Not only that, but the internal battery on the Passport has a max charging voltage of 4.35V

    Unfortunately I've never been able to get straight answers for this kind of stuff so excuse my incoherence to that..

    So does that mean that it would be smarter to have a charger with voltage output of 4.35V or 4.5V instead of 5V? :/

    Nah, the charging circuit includes a voltage regulator that ensures the battery receives the appropriate voltage. The only issue is when you exceed the tolerance of the voltage regulator or integrated charging circuit,.. but that's likely way above 5V.

    Here's one: http://www.ti.com/product/tsu8111

    That one has a 28V over voltage tolerance.

    So yeah.

    Use the playbook charger, it's 1.8A output, charges really quickly. I have always used this on my Q10 and now my passport, I didn't even take the charging block out of the box.
