RIM Blackberry Travel Charger
Advantages: can be used in some other countries
Disadvantages: none at all
When I got my Blackberry torch phone included in the box was of course the phone charger which is an essential piece of kit when you have a mobile phone really.
The Blackberry charger is different to any other charger that I have had in the past and this is simply because it is designed to be a travel charger as well and so it comes in a few pieces. You have the main charger unit which is a sturdy piece of black plastic with the Blackberry logo on it as well as various other bits of information printed on the front most of which makes no sense to me but I can make out that the charger is made in China. The main unit of the charger has a long wire which has the small usb connector on the end which fits in to your phone to charge it. As well as the main charging unit you also have two different plug attachments so you have the standard three pin plug which we are used to in the UK as well as a two pin plug which is suitable for use in some foreign countries such as Europe and North America.
The whole charger seems very well made and not like it is going to break. I find that it is very easy to attach the attachments to the main charger unit as the simply slide down on to the unit and you hear a clicking sound when they are fully attached. It is also easy to remove the attachments should you need to as there is a button to push which releases it allowing you to slide the attachment off.
Now I don't really travel abroad but it is certainly an option that I am looking at in the next couple of years and so I find it handy that I could use this charger when I go. It would be very handy for people that travel frequently I have to say but for me most of the time the UK attachment is connected and I have no need to change it at the moment.
I find that the wire on the charger is quite thick and much like a double wire compared to those that I have had with my phones in the past which makes me feel more confident that the wire won't become damaged and leave me needing a new charger. The wire also is quite long and so it reaches wherever I need it to so when I am at work it will reach over to my desk and such like.
You can buy these RIM chargers from amazon for just £4.60 which comes with free shipping and I think this is an excellent price, even if you wanted to have a spare charger in your bag which is something that I like to do. For the price all I can say is that the charger is very well made and does the job it is supposed to do well but also has the added extra of being flexible so you can use it abroad too.
Thank you for reading my review!
Summary: A good quality, well made charger
