    Playbook charger and connections

    Hi...I was wondering if I can use my torch charger for the playbook (and vice versa) ? Also I have a seagate external HD - can I connect that directly to my playbook? Thanks
    Cheers
    Helen

    Yes you can, as long as it's a micro USB charger.

    Don't think you can connect Hard Drives right directly to the PlayBook.

    You can use you Torch charger to charge the PlayBook, but keep in mind it will take a very long time to charge. The charger for the Torch is 5V with 700mA. ,and a PlayBook charger is releasing 1.8A. So that's Milliamps to Amps, so using the native 1.8A charger for the PlayBook with charge it way faster.

    Thanks for the reply...do you think the playbook charger would cause damage to the torch if I used it to charge it?
