Re: Lithium battery myths dispelled

The one that came with the Playbook is the regular charger if you want the fast charger you do have to buy it. You do not have to and keep using the regular one but the fast one really works very good. 

 

The output of the regular one is 5V

The output of the fast charger is 12V

Re: Lithium battery myths dispelled

The output of a fast charger: 5vdc, 1.8 Amps.
The output of a regular is 5vdc 650 milliamps.
The voltage cannot change.
The one that came in the box is a FAST charger, I don't know if they made a mistake but that's the one I received.

Re: Lithium battery myths dispelled

I think they did make a mistake and you got sold a package deal. The one I got just is the regular one and it lists on Blackberrys website what comes with the Blackberry and that one is listed. I had to buy a fast charger I would say you are very lucky. But are you sure you have the fast charger whats the tip on the charger that plugs in the Blaybook micro or three little pins? Also your charger have two fold our plugs or three proung plugs?

Re: Lithium battery myths dispelled

The Standard PlayBook charger is also a Fast Smartphone charger.

 

There is a Fast charger for the PlayBook that has even more amps than the standard one.

 

I hope to see one at #BBWC tomorrow.

Re: Lithium battery myths dispelled

So the standard Playbook charger is fast for Blackberry smartphones? It is not fast for the Playbook if you want a fast one you need buy it?

Re: Lithium battery myths dispelled

Last question is the BlackBerry PlayBook Rapid Charging Pod and the BlackBerry Rapid Charger the same speed?

I think  what i told you is wrong, the charger i have is the PREMIUM CHARGER, it is the first picture below, and the second picture is the RAPID CHARGER.
