    Finally received my replacement charger and its the same crappy usb charger that broke.
    what gives? i was expecting a rapid charger like everyone else got as a replacement.
    time to buy a rapid charger i guess and save the usb one for a back up.
    if RIM would have told me that they were just sending me another crap usb charger
    i would of bought a rapid charger 2 weeks ago lol.

    Well, at least, you'll be able to charge while finding a good deal on the rapid charger. I prefer the Travel version - it can be used with many cased left on the pb and might be a tad less finicky about positioning.

    This would be my suggestion too. I have my PB wrapped up in an Otter box because I carry it all day at work so it's nice to just fold open the access flap and then let the rapid charger's plug get sucked into place effortlessly.

    Sure beats fumbling around with the USB plug especially in the dark.

    I found mine online for just under $40.00 (CND) and it arrived within a few days with free shipping.

    RIM recently replaced my broken USB charger with a Rapid charger. It took them over a month to get it here too.
