Charges the Playbook much quicker than the stock USB charger. Has a magnet in the charging plug that causes it to "grip" with the 3-pin charge port on the Playbook, so there nothing to insert or fiddle with; just get the plug near the port and they'll snap together on their own. Doesn't have the spring loaded pins of the charging pod, there's no problem with defects there. The unit uses an AC break away box, so it'll plug into any 3-prong power outlet (no need for extra space for a large box plug).

On the negative side, the charging plug itself is a bit larger/thicker than I thought it would be, about half an inch thick, so you'll need some clearance for it if you're using it with an angled case stand. Still, a very small complaint, and it's otherwise perfect.

We bought this because the kids broke the USB port on our Playbook. How do you charge a Playbook without a USB Port. After about a week of a dead tablet, I found this charger. I wish we had purchased this to begin with. If you have a Playbook, buy this charger. It is so easy to plug in and charges great. It uses a magnet to hold to your tablet so you don't have to plug it in, it just finds the plug. I bought my dad the stand version and he really like it so he can use it upright. We have a hard case on Playbook and, despite my fears, the charger works with the case still on.

This product is a must for any playbook owner. I let my playbook batter run down till it wouldn't power up anymore, I think with the update to OS 2.0 using a USB only to charge will not work anymore. This was my last resort after being told by Blackberry to send my unit in for repairs. I ordered this item on vacation, and when I got back it had arrived 2 or 3 days later. Long story short, magnets sucked on to the playbook and charging commenced! Rapid is not the word for this charger, lets just say I watch two episodes of Hero's on Netflix, and my playbook was fully charged. Also if you haven't already, the BlackBerry branded bluetooth keyboard, basically a tiny laptop now!

The reason I bought this charger for my son's Blackberry Playbook was because the mini-usb charging port no longer functioned. The little piece on the inside was loose or broken, and plugging it in did nothing. Eventually, the tablet simply died due to no battery power.

So I found out that they made this charger to used another, non-usb port on the Playbook. I decided to give it a shot.

All that being said, I must say this this charger is FAR superior to any mini-usb charger, on any device. This particular charger attaches to the tablet using magnets, which keeps it attached quite securely to the tablet. The bonus here is that there really isn't anything to break. If my son rips the charger out of the port, it's no problem. No real damage can occur.

As for charging, this thing is much quicker than the traditional mini-usb charger. The only downside is the rather large power brick, but that's a non-issue for me.

I originally thought of purchasing the charging stand, but since I was going to buy a covertible leather case - well, you can't have the playbook out of the case to charge it, and then put it back in the case after the charge is finished = eternal loop of inconvenience.
So Leather covertible Case + Rapid charger makes a great combo together! You can have your blackberry inside the case either stand or lay flat and put the magnetic charging head attached. It charges super fast, and you don't have to worry about taking the playbook off the case just to charge on a stand.

It does what it suppose to do which is to charge it very quick....Unfortunately, it stops working pretty quick as well. After two or three months it probably won't work anymore. I've bought this twice. The first one lasted for three months and the second about two. It has something to do with the way it was designed. You could google about its spring mechanism and find out more. I'm pretty sure everybody who bought this charger have the same problem. Can't really recommend this product, but if its the only way to charge your Playbook (some people have their PB's usb port malfunction...like mine's), I guess you have no choice but to get it.

P.S.
The rapid charger dock has the same problem.

I couldn't get my Playbook to charge anymore. I tried all the tricks on line and nothing worked. Of course BlackBerry doesn't support their customers so I had a $400 Frisbee. I have owned my playbook for about four years and I hated to throw it out. $13 dollars later I am typing on it now! Best 13 bucks I have ever spent.

The number one advantage this brings is an extremely fast charge time in a slightly larger unit, a fine trade-off for the slightly smaller charger shipped with unit.

Very close behind in plus department:

- this does not use the micro-USB port for charging (minimizing chance of damage to port)
- connector uses magnetic coupling - easy "breakaway" [disconnection] versus possible damage to USB prt
- the connector is a right-angle vs. straight insertion, allowing use of charger with PB when it is installed in keyboard case.
