Playbook and smartphone charger

Are the chargers interchangeable between the Blackberry smartphone and Playbook?

Re: Playbook and smartphone charger

yes they are, but the playbook will take longer to charge with a phone charger.

 

the playbook charger will charge your phone about twice as fast

Re: Playbook and smartphone charger

Should be no problem to use any charger that fits in the slot, some might give less or more power, just as you might get less or more if you use the usb cable plugged into your laptop or car.

Some charger will make the playbook click stuff on its own, like it has a ghost or peoosessed.

 

my wifes LG charger did this to my sons playbook and it started to play games, music, and wierd typinging

Re: Playbook and smartphone charger

Trust me, I have 3 playbooks at home and a degree in electronics. It was the LG charger. The power supply had a dirty output that caused it.

Re: Playbook and smartphone charger

Does this suggest that I could charge my smart phone quicker with the Playbook charger?

Yes. It works fine and fast, it is a much high rating than the normal smartphone charger. Some say it is not good to use this higher rated charger, but over a year, I've had no problems. The on-device smartphone regulator handles the additional power ok.
