    I bought one of those desktop chargers and thouught it was a quick charger am I wrong. When I use it the battery shows charging but it does not gain charge unless I turn off the pb. I have the other quick charger and it seems to work fine most of the time as long I make sure it snaps in good. Both seem pretty touchy on position. This pb is almost 2 years old so not sure if its the battery getting poor or something else. I often think of replacing it but then it keeps doing its job so I cannot really justify it. These really are pretty good devices.

    Can you post a picture? If it's the dock, it's supposed to charge the PlayBook and charge it quickly. It's it made by BlackBerry?

    Yes it is the bb dock and it does not gain on charging when the pb is on. I thought it did when I first got a couple weeks ago. I'm just kinda confused and a bit annoyed with the fact that some days the battery is pretty awesome then some days I put it down and it kills itself off so quick.

    But after the complaing thankyou for confirming it is supposed to quick charge like the wall mount magnetic connection one I have.

    Sounds like a faulty unit. I'd advise contacting Blackberry's customer service and trying to get a replacement.

    The dock should charge just as fast as the other magnetic charger. As you noted it needs to snap in sometimes to start charging. That's difficult to do with the dock. The dock probably has one recessed pin. I found clening the contacts help considerably. Another thing you can do is get the Battery Guru app. With the app you can see if it is actually charging and not giving a "false" lightning bolt.
