    Does anyone have the definitive lowdown on blackberry charging requirements... this is driving me potty!

    I currently have three blackberry items. My old curve 9600, a new Z10 and a playbook and I'm trying to find a universal car charger that will handle all three.

    The normal blackberry wall charger will deal with all three (although very slowly in the case of the playbook)

    The 'Hi speed' charger supplied with the Playbook will handle all three no problems.

    I have two car chargers one by Akashi, the other by Kensington.

    The Akashi unit will charge the playbook and the 9600, showing up as a USB link on the screen. does not charge the Z10

    The Kensington unit will charge the Z10 but the 9600 gives a message saying it can't charge and the Playbook shows no sign of a connection at all.

    What is the difference in the charging requirements/connections between the three? Is it possible to make an adaptor so that one will charge all?

    Any help will be appreciated.

    To avoid problems and charge all your devices quickly, you need to get a charger delivering 2A (amps).

    I have bought a cheap car charger on amazon to do this and I could charge my 9800, my Z10 and my PlayBook.

    I won't have my Z10 for a few more days when Verizon ships, but I did buy a car charger from them that charges both my PlayBook and 9930 and has a USB port that will charge other devices.
