I actually want to know what output spec. a car charger will need to charge the Playbook and would that damage the Bold 9700 if used with that as well?
    From what I have read on the net, the Bold 9700/9780 Micro-USB Car Charger (Mnf#:ASY-18083-001/ASY18083001)

    OEM Blackberry Part Numbers: ASY-18083-001 / ASY18083001 / HDW-17958-001 / HDW17958001


    The BlackBerry Micro-USB Automotive Charger, manufactured by BlackBerry is compatible with the BlackBerry KickStart 8220, Pearl Flip 8220, Pearl Flip 8230, Curve 8520, Curve 8530, Curve 8900, Pearl 3G 9100, Curve 3G 9300, Curve 3G 9330, Curve 9350, Curve 9360, Curve 9370, Thunder 9500, Storm 9530, Storm 2 9550, Tour 9630, Style 9670, Bold 9700, Bold 9780, Bold 9790, Torch 9800, Torch 9810, Torch 9850, Torch 9860, Bold 9930 and Bold 9900 phone models.

    Also, in another post, I read on the net,
    only 0.5 amps - not for playbook!
    Posted by Unknown on 15th Aug 2011

    not enough amps to charge the playbook. the description should have been more detailed so i wouldn't have to pay to ship his back.
    In plain BlackBerry language, use only approved BB car chargers for specific device or device(s).

    I hope this helps.

    Thank you.

    All this silliness about "approved chargers"............my car charger I use for my 9810 is homemade..........i bought an old one for......i think it was an old motorola (about an inch wide, two prongs) and cut it off before the coils and spliced in an extra home charger I had and it works perfectly.......a 6 foot, uncoiled car charger...........havent tried it on my playbook (i drive truck.......BB gets charged 2 to 3 times a night up front, playbook is plugged in in the back) but im just sayin, try it. i've used one on my bb that wasnt powerful enough, and it just gave me an error message. I do, however, use the same HOME charger for both, and it's a BB charger........my PB charger is only used with a power inverter in the truck........

    There is nothing wrong with doing this type of rig, but the only thing to watch out for is the amps and power output. Some chargers have too much juice converted through and can fry a device if not used properly. But it seems like you know what you are doing.
