The BlackBerry Rapid Charging Pod may be the most convenient and attractive way to charge your BlackBerry PlayBook tablet. Offering a rapid charge rate that’s up to two times faster than the standard BlackBerry tablet charger, it keeps it sitting upright on the perfect angle for watching videos, photo slideshows, or browsing the web. Use it where wherever you are—it comes with a convenient six-foot power cable and country-specific adapters, and is BlackBerry Protect Safety Certified.
Does the job
Pros: Acts as a good stand for viewing and charging; especially good for using a Bluetooth keyboard (recommend the standard Apple Bluetooth keyboard; a little pricey but extremely well-built and it works!). Also very easy to seat and unseat the PlayBook; no worries that something is going to snap off.
Cons: Because the stand is pretty small, there's a bit of give if you need to touch the screen while it's docked (and after all, it is a touchscreen device), but this is a minor con, at best.
Other Thoughts: Given the placement of the power cord plug on the PlayBook -- directly at the bottom center, which is awkward when the PlayBook is in a carrying case or stand -- this charging stand serves its purpose well. You can leave it plugged in and it holds the PlayBook at a good angle for viewing.
