Default Anyone have experience with playbook rapid charging stand?

Please Login to Remove!

I was browsing through this playbook accessories page, and about halfway down the page I came across the rapid charging stand. I also came across a similar wall charger on the next page, which made me realize I must be out of the loop. Can anyone bring me up to speed on what's so different about these chargers? Also, in your opinion are these things worth the price? Thanks for any help guys.

There are three OEM charging options that I know of:
  1. Rapid charging stand: BlackBerry PlayBook Rapid Charging Pod
  2. Rapid charging wall wart: BlackBerry Rapid Charger
  3. Standard (pack-in) wall wart: BlackBerry Premium Charger

The rapid charging stand is an excellent option if you either don't use a case or don't mind removing the PlayBook from its case when charging. If you want a rapid charging option but want to keep a case on your PlayBook, then you will want to look at the rapid charging wall wart. Same charging power as the stand minus the need to dock the PlayBook without a case. And note: the rapid charging stand and rapid charging wall wart come with everything you need to charge the PlayBook. No extra cables/power adapters needed like you do with the charging docks for BlackBerry phones.

I have the Rapid charging stand: BlackBerry PlayBook Rapid Charging Pod and it works very nice. I charge it before going to bed most nights and wake up to a full battery. No fumbling for the power cord.

Had one with my first PlayBook. Gave it away when I gave away the PlayBook. Now have a new PlayBook and have a pod on the way. Very convenient.
