Playbook bought in France but delivered with an US Power adapter

Hi,

 

 I've bought a Playbook 16GB on a French website (http://www.RueDuCommerce.com) and in the package I only have the US Power Adapter, meaning that I can't charge the Tablet with it. Fortunately I have a Bold 9700 and the Power adapter can charge it, but very slowly.

 

 I would consider as a proof of respect for the customer if RIM could send me an European Power adapter so I can use my Playbook correctly.

 

Best regards

 

L.S.

Re: Playbook bought in France but delivered with an US Power adapter

Bonjour, just returned from Paris, I seriously doubt that RIM will be sending you a European charger since it would appear that the company that you purchased from had acquired some US stock. I'd suggest dropping into FNAC and purchasing for a couple of Euros a US to European plug adapter. There is a huge difference in the power output of the PB adapter and a phone adapter. In fact some generic chargers will not even charge the PB.

salut Lusluslus,

je te conseille de te retourner vers RueDuCommerce, they are the reseller.

That being said, tirgoman a raison et tu peux acheter un adaptateur femelle US-mâle France for less than 1.99 EUR (shipping fees included).
