Worst case (if warranty won't help you), you can buy an HP TouchPad barrel charger for really cheap off of eBay ~$4.99-8.99 and it functions as a fast charger. I don't use my included BlackBerry charger anylonger because I have several barrel chargers from my TouchPad tablet. You can use the included microUSB cable that shipped with the PlayBook too or another one if you have one. Here's a post I started about it over on Crackberry.

It will not damage your PlayBook either for the electrical specs are within tolerance levels. The reason these barrel chargers are so good is because you can buy different tips for it to adapt to foreign wall outlets. They are interchangeable. Again, check eBay for these. Another good thing is that if you have a BlackBerry cellphone (I have a 9810) it will function as a rapid charger for that device too. I have mine attached to a charging cradle. It charges way faster than the little BlackBerry wall charger.
