okay my blackberry playbook was dead just before I needed to travel overseas. It started with the blinking lights before my trip but after 2 months the blackberry doesn't charge, light on or anything. Even with the rapid charger. I assume my battery is completely dead at 0v? Anyway to charge it still. I have charged the device for about a week straight and nothing happens still. The Blackberry Playbook is on OS 2.0

I understand that you dont get any LED blinking when you connect the Playbook to the charger. Have you tried connecting the playbook to a different normal playbook charger.

my normal playbook charger isn't broken as I have tried charging other devices and it works fine. I don't feel the need to spend money on another playbook charger when both the playbook and rapid charger don't charge my playbook.

Sounds like the micru-usb port. Two choices - spend 20 to 40 dollars or euros on a magnetic charger which may or may not solve it, or trash the playbook now.
Edit: I see you already tried the rapid magnetic rapid charger. It's probably unrecoverable without repair and new parts more than $200

Serious. After all your tries, eiher your charger, your charger port or your charging system is busted.
If it's one of the first two, then a charger that fits the three pin socket to the right of the usb may bring it back to life.
If it's the third then playbook is not economic to fix.
Others will say keep charging for a couple of days, but with no lights, no activity, AND you say you already tried the mag charger, eventually you need to call it. Time of death.......agreed.
