The pocket charger that comes with the Playbook will charge both the phone or the Playbook (one at a time). The Playbook pocket charger will be a fast charger for the phone.
You cannot use the phone charger to charge the Playbook. The phone charger will not charge the Playbook!
I myself carry both chargers so I can charge the two devices at the same time.

I suggest you try to use the phone charger to charge the Playbook before you commit to it. As for myself, and the other users I know who have the Playblook, the Playbook will not not charge with the phone charger.
It seems that some dealers and some support people are misinforming their customers about this. This is a known issue.
You can use the Playbook pocket charger to charge either the phone or the Playbook successfully.

Jerry I must have the only PB that charges off of my BB Bold charger. Oh yeah RIM is lying to me when they say it will work and fine to do.
I do not understand why people are saying it wont charge if you use a phone charger because it 100% works and RIM told me it will and is safe to do so. Oh yeah I forgot they are lying to me.

Any AC adapter that has a transformer that steps AC120V down to DC will get warm.

No charger should overheat to the point where it feels abnormally warm to the touch! In fact it was feeling sort of hot.
When charging with the Blackberry phone that it was made for, the charger gets only a bit warm, but not hot to the touch.

Yes your right no charger should get HOT but they can get warm. Not very warm but there is some heat and it will get warm. I bought a fast rapid charger for the PB the transformer gets warm feel your latop ac adapter transformer bet you thats warm.
