NOT charging for Wall Plug Charger with battery 50%

guys, is anyone experience no playbook response with Wall Plug Charger? I connect it, but NOT charging, no blinking. My playbook battery is 50%. Then i turn on my pb and connect with my usb wire, set pb to standby. Thanks to GOD, it begin to charge. After 5 hours, battery full now.  i just bought it for 1 year, maybe less. 

 

Is anyone who can help me on this? if the Wall Plug Charger fault? Thanks in advance.

Re: NOT charging for Wall Plug Charger with battery 50%

The Playbook must be charged with its original type charger. The phone charger is too weak. The USB port on a computer is also far too weak to charge the Playbook.

 

There are two charger types that will charge a Playbook. There is the one that came with it, and the optional quick charger that uses the Blackberry proprietary magnetic charge connector.

I would suggest that the wall charger is faulty. I suggest purchasing the travel charger that is a rapid charger
