Last night my kid accidentally put the Playbook into the craddle upside down, and the result was the volume rocker contacting across the charging pins causing some nice orange sparks...
I checked the Playbook, and everything seems OK; the charger to appears to be alright.
NOTE to BB designers (Playbook or Accessories):
Next time, please design a recess or better plastic stand-off feature around the contact pins to prevent accidental bridging/sparking.
"Sparking is bad, m'kay."

Wow. Thanks for the heads up on the craddle.
IMO, I don't like the location of where the charging input sits on the PB since it would be nice to have it plugged in and charging using the BB leather convertible case for the PB (great case by the way) http://bit.ly/yn3XTY
