    I am really, REALLY angry with the issues I have had with my Nook Color's charger cord. 3 out of 4 times I have gone to the store, I have not been able to get a replacement. I finally bought this particular product for $10 more than what I wanted to spend. I was told in the store that they will no longer be keeping the cords in store and I will have to order online. This was after I went online to order one and they were out of stock. I did the "Pick Me Up" option on the site, where they said they sent an email to the store to hold a cord for me. I even got a confirmation letter that the store was holding a cord in my name and would for 3 days. When I went to pick it up, the lady who helped me had no idea what I was talking about, that she had never even heard of this option. What the h#$@!?! Regardless, I have had wonderful customer service. The lady at the store looked everywhere to see if she could find me a cord. I appreciated the time and effort that she made for me. I have also had great service when I have had any technical issues with my Nook. What you need to work on is your availablility and quality of your products. When you make them really crappy so the public has to keep replacing the parts, shouldn't you have the products available? Just because I'm not buying the newest edition of a product doesn't mean I'm not a valuable customer. I haven't been able to use my Nook for 2 weeks because I haven't been able to get the product. I will NEVER recommend a Nook, even though I love my Nook Color because all you care about is the almighty dollar.

    Worst design ever! Do not buy!

    This will not last more than a few months. This is our second one.Due to the poorest design ever produced, it is broken again. Barns& Noble will not replace it even though it obviously a design problem. I used to be a fan of the Nook and B&N, but I can't be a fan of anyone that will not back up their own product. If I could I would give this product zero stars, but apparently that is not possible

    SO annoyed with the Nook color charger situation. Not only does it break a lot....now I can't replace my charger and cannot use my Nook. Really? Why not just make one charger works for all of the Nook products. Or something. This is horrible customer service and I am very disappointed.

    The plug is so short it makes it almost impossible to remove from the port in my car.  I had to do the same thing as another reviewer and use pliers to remove it from the port..  Then because I used pliers it got all chewed up.  Very unhappy with product with what I paid.

    An alternative, especially since this is out of stock, is to buy either a USB to car outlet adapter, since the Nook cords all have a USB end, or buy a wall-plug to car outlet adapter and plug the Nook in to charge the same way you would at home.

    I must say that my disappointment with nook customer service is a understatement. it is a feeling that is obviously shared by many as I have read customer reviews for the first time. my nook color charger tip has broken 3 times in 3 years. it was not available in local B & N store and was told it was discontinued and I should try on line. I have sent 2 complaints regarding this situation to no avail. herei was ,ready to buy yet another charger when B & N would rather I spend another $250 on another nook. fat chance!!!! take my advice. give your business to some company that appreciates your business.

    I have gone thru two power cords already and now I need another one. These cords SUCK !!! I guess I have no other choice for a replacement. I wish that I could trade in my nook color for a tablet.

    Zero Stars. This item 9781616825737 is not correct for the nook HD+. It has a cable for NOOK First Edition and NOOK Color only.
    These cables do not fit the NOOK HD, which has a unique non mini USB power port. Apparently Barnes and Noble Website is incorrect.
    This description is inaccurate and essentially fraudulent.  The box received matches the item number, but this item number described as 
    for the NOOK HD+ is not correct.  Do not order, call customer service.

    Gee, if only I could buy one.  A chain should ALWAYS carry accesories for previous generation devices. Especially if they were still on the market within the previous 6 months to a year!!!!!

    I love my Nook Color which I got for Christmas a couple of years ago. I HATE the fact that I have had to replace the charging cord so often, despite the care I take with them. This will be the fourth cord in three years.

    I've had my nook for just over a year and a half and the charger

    I've had my nook for just over a year and a half and the charger goes bad. I didn't have a problem w/ having to purchase another one, but the website says they are available in stores, and yet when I visit the store they say they aren't getting any more. I'm not impressed or happy with this product, and I don't like being sent on wild goose chases. I don't know if I would buy readers from this company in the future.

    If you don't have a connection in the trunk, put your Nook up front when you charge it. If you need pliers to work this thing you're doing it WRONG!

    This item comes with a USB car adapter, standard microUSB cord (for pretty much anything), and a proprietary NOOK Color/Tablet cord. The kit shows its versatility in 3 ways. 1) The standard cable will take care of Simple Touch NOOK devices as well as many non-NOOK products; 2) the proprietary cable will handle both the Color and the Tablet - cables which historically have short life spans and, therefore, offers a replacement; and 3) the adapter will service any electronic device that requires 2100 mah (2.1 Amps) of power provided you BRING YOUR OWN CABLE. That's right, you can charge your NOOK HD/HD+ with this adapter along with the HD/HD+ cable you already own. Let me make sure this is perfectly clear; bring your NOOK HD/HD+ cable out to your car from inside the house, plug it into the car adapter, and it will charge your NOOK HD/HD+. The NOOK HD/HD+ cable is NOT included. (whew!) Two areas for improvement: 1) Add 1/2 inch of length to the adapter and knurl the edges so it can be removed from the lighter socket without damaging it. I promise not to speak disparagingly of the designer out loud here. 2) Advertise the actual specifications of the adapter. I am forced to assume that the adapter supplies 2.1 Amps because that is what the NOOK Color and Tablet each require.
    Versatility/Utility: 5
    Adapter Design: 3

    I have had to purchase 3 chargers! If I would have known I would have never bought a Nook Color. When this charger bites the dust I am going to invest in a tablet of some sort. Not made by Nook. I am done with B&N products.  This has been an ongoing problem for years now and nobody seems to care. I can't wait to wash my hands of this pathetic product.

    Although I really like my nook tablet I'm disappointed that the chargers and
    other products for it are not in stores anymore. My nook still works so why should 
    I get a new one. You (barnes&noble) should still make accessories available for people
    who still are using nook color and nook tablet. Gave one star not for the charger but
    for the availablity of the accessories

    Have had my Nook Tablet for 1 1/2yrs and had no problems at all with either the cord that came with it or the cord for the car charger and no problems at all with the car charger plug in piece. In fact I am still using the originals of each. I read and charger my nook one-2 times a week depending on how much I read. And I charge it with the car charger when we go away on long trips to relatives &camping
