Of course you do.   just goto your local hardware or computer store and buy a converter.

Re: Help

Shame on RIM! How they intend to attract new developers when they can't even ship the right charger!!

Joke aside, as PlayBook charger you can use any standard USB charger, I have used so far my BB Torch charger, HTC charger and even connecting tablet to a PC works too. Of course charging with original charger goes faster, but since I usually let it overnight, I don't care much about how fast it is charged.

Re: Help

I can't believe nobody has suggested ramming a biro lid in the earth pin ... not that I'm suggesting that.
