    I saw this post and said what the heck I will order one too So I got the dock which is $29... But how is everybody here saying theirs is already available for in-store pick up right after placing the order?
    I got the order confirmation email from walmart but it doesnt say its available for pickup... Not that I cannot wait or am gonna rush to walmart but was just curious...

    Walmart - $19.00 for the BlackBerry PlayBook Rapid Travel Charger (Allows for Faster charging)
    Free shipping to store for pickup

    Walmart.com: BlackBerry PlayBook Tablet - Rapid Travel Charger (Allows for Faster Recharging): Computers

    Just ordered one for myself
    If you order one, I suggest you try Ship to Store as shipping option. Walmart's database does not accurately reflect the fact that many of their stores actually stock the charger - same is true for some other Playbook accessories If you choose Ship to Store, you may find (as I did) that you get an email in an hour or less, telling you it is available for pickup.

    Many but certainly not all Walmarts stock Playbook accessories and (unfortunately) their database does not accurately reflect stock status. If you select Ship to Store and the store carries it, you'll get an email that it is available for pickup. As often as not though, it is luck of the draw as to whether it will be shipped or already in stock. FWIW, the same is true of Staples. Their web site accurately reflects stock status for some items, but I have also walked into Staples and picked up others not even listed.

    Just ordered a Tan Exec Case, $25, says available for pickup starting Jan 31. We will see, it would really surprise me if it was in any local stores. I already got the desk charger at Staples for $13.50. Thanks for starting this thread.

    Thanks OP for the heads up, ordered mine this morning and picked it up awhile ago. Obviously they have them in the store, I asked if they would price match their website, they did have them out on the floor, they said they couldn't do that. It doesn't make sense to me, they will match a competitor but they won't match their website or other Walmart stores.

    It's an online sale and technically they won't match online pricing even though it's their own. Speaking from experience, the ship-to-store option by Walmart is a different purchase system than purchasing in the store so this exact situation is a possibility.

    Probably a dumb (noob)question....but this is a wall charger right? The word 'travel' makes me think of a cig lighter.
    It's called a travel charger because it has a separate A/C power cord. Presumably, you could get a different cord to plug it into a different voltage and or an outlet that takes a different type of plug. The normal charger is all moulded together into one piece.

    About an hour ago I walked into Staples, since I was in the area, and to my surprise, found the rapid charging dock there. I have been to this Staples at least 2 times in the last 3 weeks and both times they told me they are out of *all* PB accessories. So when I found the dock/pod, I asked the sales rep to price-check and was expecting it to be $13.50, because that's how much they were when they went on clearance. Well, I was surprised again to find out it was $8.50 (yes, eight fiddy!!!). Needless to say, I got the dock and also picked up the OEM softshell case for $3.50. Both items were NIB and unopened.

    I just tried the dock and it works awesome! Now, only if someone could help me figure out how to make the PB go into a "picture frame" mode while on dock and/or can be used as an alarm clock, I might even keep the one I ordered from walmart, for $29, to be used for my second PB.

    Thanks in advance for your tips/suggestions!

    Was able to use the promotion the Crackberry store had a few weeks ago (buy 1 get 1 free for $45) so $22.50 and free shipping as a bought the retractable cable (also buy 1 get one free for $11) to put it over $50.

    It's awesome and imo should have been the charger included in the original playbook packaging.
