    Unfortunately that is not possible. However, you can use your playbook charger to charge certain BlackBerry devices.

    The Bold 9700/9780 Micro-USB Car Charger (Mnf#:ASY-18083-001/ASY18083001) cannot charge the BlackBerry PlayBook, there's just not enough juice.




    However, my OEM BlackBerry CLM-03D car charger will charge my BlackBerry Bold 9900, and my BlackBerry PlayBook
    I am that it can charge both when I am mobile on the road.

    I just realized that your question was answered on 01-31-12 by ice, and myself, your Bold 9700 car charger cannot charge the PlayBook, there is not enough juice.

    Please read prior posts.

    Thank you.

    Hi. Yes I had read the previous posts but your:
    "However, my OEM BlackBerry CLM-03D car charger will charge my BlackBerry Bold 9900, and my BlackBerry PlayBook. I am that it can charge both when I am mobile on the road."
    was the reason for my follow-up question.

    I understand what you're concern is, but your BlackBerry Bold 9700 car charger just doesn't have enough juice to charge the BlackBerry PlayBook, unlike my charger, which can safely charge my PlayBook.

    The charger I have has the exact same voltage output to charge my PlayBook.

    Ah. I see. I am afraid that I worded my original question title badly. It infers my charger is the Blackberry branded charger when it is, in fact, an OEM. Sorry for that. 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?
