I wasn't sure about this item when I ordered it. It seems the only people who ever review things are the ones upset. This product is awesome. very compact, very unobtrusive, but very powerful. It charges very quickly and is great way to display my Playbook when using as a clock on the nightstand. Very easy to use, the magnetic hook-up is cool and there is nothing to plug in. It will be one of the first things I buy if I get another Playbook.

Vast improvement over the standard USB charger and makes a nice docking/display station. Only possible knock is that the Playbook design covers the HDMI-out when charging so you can't run media to your flatscreen when on the docking station. However, during straight media playback the battery life on the playbook is very good so it has not been an issue for me.

Also, you have to remember to tilt the tablet into and out of the dock (like the little paper instruction slip included in the packaging says)...

When I first got this about 30 days ago it worked great. It holds the PlayBook at a great angle and charges it very quickly - about 2 hours from near empty to 100%.

The problem is with the connector.

The base has a magnetic connector that includes three spring loaded pins. The pins extend to make contact with the three cupped connectors on the PB side of the connection.

After many uses (and probably a few where the PB was inadvertently put in upside down - hey, it happens) the springs stop working very well and they no longer make a connection.

If the middle one fails, you will know because the PB will not get that charging lightning bolt. However, if either of the sides stop working, you will still get the lightning bolt, but it will NOT charge.

This problem is well documented on the Crackberry website. It has nothing to do with the battery percentage accuracy - which is a totally different issue.

At first it will be an intermittent problem, but then it will be permanent.

For the price, they really should have tested this better. They will end up with lots of returns and will have to redesign the stand end of the connector.

As noted, when it was working, it was spectacular.

This is a really great charger and stand. I have never run my PlayBook battery dry, but I have run it to 30%. It has recharged in 3 hours or less. If watching a movie or listening to music I just pop it on the stand and I can keep using my PlayBook. The only downside is that you can not use a case with the charger. Still, it works so well that I have to give it 5 stars.

Its really great and it easily clicks in on the playbook. It also charges my Playbook significantly faster than the regular charger.

This is a good charging stand for the Playbook. I don't have any issues with the fit and so far it has worked well. It has a good weight to it, though it is still possible for your playbook to shift a bit if you are not careful. A bit expensive for what it is (hence the 4 stars) but overall a good product.

I wish I had listened to the other one-star review. I had the same experience -- the device worked great, then worked intermittently, then stopped.

The connection is partly physical (a "bump" in the base connects with the indented charge port in the PB), and partly magnetic (it "snaps" in place). My Playbook appears to be fine (the three pins in the PB charge port remain in place) but the base no longer works. Tapping and fussing sometimes makes the charge light return, but only fleetingly, and without charging.

Avoid! This is waste of plastic.

Usually I give the benefit of the doubt to negative reviews. This is the only time that I should have listened. The charger worked great for one month and then the pins spring broke. The seller could care less about it. Please beware if you buy this charger since soon you might regret your purchase too.
