Help - Blackberry Playbook will not charge anymore

I have been having a few probs with the charger being lose in the charging port but it has been charging up till this point.  It is at 25% battry and will not charge.  I have tried using the USB but it won't work either.  I  am using the charger that was supplied with the Playbook.  Is there a known fault with these things?  It is really starting to drive me mad.  


Any suggestions welcome on how to get it working.  Is there another way of charging it?

The USB port can be fragile if not careful on connecting and disconnecting.


I and many others have purchased the magnetic rapid charger
