    A very simple AC to USB 5V converter.

    This is a very simple AC to USB 5V converter: It simply plugs into your AC outlet or power strip and proves a 5V USB power-only port.

    Needless to say, if you have a collection of these power adapters adapters used with charging e-cigarettes or digital video-recording microcams then buying this is unnecessary. The USB cable provided with the Nook (Micro-B plug that connects to the Nook Simple Touch, for example) works well even without a Nook-branded AC-to-5V USB converter. And you can do the reverse: Use it to charge your e-cigs, microcams, etc. that charge via USB.

    If you don't have such a power converter then buy this. If you already have a converter then you don't need this.

    Good, but you may already have an adapter that will work.

    As one of the reviewer's commented below, you may already have an adapter on hand that will work. My LG phone charge adapter with USB port worked just fine. Before I tried the LG adapter, I checked the output voltage listed on the adapter, and it said 5.1 volts. 5 volts is typical for these USB charge adapters. This type adapter gives you a little more flexibility and convenience as far as charging locations. Plus, using a computer USB port to charge your Nook can be problematic since many computers do not provide a charge to the USB ports when in "sleep" or a low power mode. This adapter does not come standard with the Simple Touch. All you get with the Nook is the chord with the USB plug on one end (to connect to computer), and micro USB plug on the other end (to connect to the Nook). So if you don't already have an adapter that will work, I recommend buying the Nook adapter for the above stated reasons.

    Adapter needed for reading while charging

    My Simple Touch only came with the USB cable. When you need to charge your Touch via this cable, it is in USB Mode and you cannot Use your Touch. The screen is locked up. If you use the Adapter, official Nook or another 5V wall adapter, you can then charge and still read. If you don't already have a 5V adapter, then it is worth the purchase. But I can't for the life of me understand why it is not included in the first place.

    Well, in case anyone is wondering, there is a few people who have written an older review here for this adapter plug saying that it didn't come with it when they bought the simple touch which it may not have when they first came out.

    I just wanted to post this here letting people know that this plug does indeed come with the simple touch as of the date i'm posting this. I just bought one today 8/04/12, brand new in the box, and it is packaged neatly in the bottom portion of the box, right next to the USB cable.

    So, just to clear up maybe a little confusion for anyone that's about to buy a simple touch and was wondering if this comes with them, then yes they do. Also, like others have suggested, you can use other plugs as well if you happen to have one, it is not absolutely necessary to use this specific plug. Thanks :)

    This adapter DOES NOT come with the Nook Simple Touch. If you have one from your Ipod or Iphone, or any device that uses a USB plug, they will work. For less than 10 bucks, it's not only cheap, but essential if you want to charge your Nook from a wall outlet instead of your computer.

    Well to me it doesn't matter if any USB charger will work. I want the Barnes and Noble charger that matches my Nook, not to mention I love B&N and will support them whenever I can!

    I'm confused. My NOOK came with a wall plug in the accessories compartment at the bottom of the box. Is B&N just selling this for nonsense. It should come with one.

    After reading the reviews I noticed a couple of people said their adapter was included when they purchased their NOOK'S. I checked the packaging thoroughly, nothing was there. Makes me wonder. . . is there a mistake during packaging or something.

    Well I guess those that received an adapter with their Nook were the lucky ones. I just purchased mine today,
    2/18/2013 and did NOT receive an adapter. There is a place in the packaging for one, but instructions claim it is an optional part. I'm hoping my cell phone charger will do the trick as others have stated.

    I found one on Ebay for under $2 bucks brand new with free shipping.  Problem solved.  I refuse to pay B&N $10 bucks for something that should have been included in the first place.
