    The Charging dock works great, as it hold the PB upright for viewing. You just have to be mindful of dust build up in/onto the contact/spring pins. This can cause charging connectivity issues.

    The Rapid Charger works great also. It does have the magnetic connector that grabs itself when you get it close, and it will break-away if you walk thru the charging cord, or forget to remove when you pick up the PB.

    I have both and use both, just your preference......

    When I bought my PB the price of the rapid charger vs the dock was insane so I went with the rapid charger. I have found since the dock may be more advantageous depending on use.

    When lying flat and playing video and charging, the back get quite warm. Holding it upright allows for better heat dissipation and the back is cooler and likely the innards likewise. I am using the PB to stream video to the tele through the HDMI port for up to.12 hours a day And the heat concerned me. I found an old holder of some sort that I can use like the dock stand and now there is no concern. I now realize for my use, the dock would have been the better solution and may still eventually get one. If I had not found the holder, I likely would not use the PB for streaming as it was unwieldy lying flat and because of the heat.

    Before using it for streaming, the dock would not have worked as well for me as I carried the PB around and the regular charger was too slow to recharge requiring the rapid charger to reside in my bag. The Dock would have been too cumbersome. If I had still been working as I had a fixed office during that life, the dock would have worked well all around.

    I think it is not one or the other but getting the one that does the best job for your needs.
