    I love my Nook and here is what you get with the customer service. NOTHING> They have the worst customer service on the planet. Barnes and Nobles knows they have a problem with the Nook color charger. It bends and breaks. They have had thousands of complaints. I tried to get a replacement and I got some idiot who did not speak English and asked me to repeat my name 14 tiems. That is great customer service when they don't even speak the same language. I have bought dozens and dozens off books for this Nook but Barnes and Nobles only cares about getting your money. There is zero customer service. I even asked to speak to a manager he refused his name and held the phone and wouldn't answer  questions. I was left with a less than stellar customer service experience but the Better Business Bureau will hear how Barnes and Nobles are selling these Nooks for  hundreds of dollars and refusing to offer any service. I am disgusted with Barnes and Nobles and will never do business with them again.

    Not sure where all the negative comments are coming from about this product. You CAN buy just the charging cable if you want. Its available right there in the B&N store. Also, I have nothing by POSITIVE things to say about the B&N Chat customer service I received. My Nook HD charger was making a loud squealing noise when it was plugged in. I chatted with the representative, she asked for my serial number, and sent a replacement right away. No issues. Couldn’t be happier with the process all around!

    customer service for this product is unbelievably bad. while the charger is better quality this time around, its still ridiculous that you can't buy just the cable (not the power connector). If you call BN support hafl the time you get someone that doesn't even speak english, ask to talk to a manager and the experience only gets worse.

    Now the HD+ is an excellent product, i LOVE mine, i don't have any complaints at all regarding the actual hardware, but EVERYTHING that goes into supporting the hardware is a sub-par experience.

    I believe the Nook is a better reader than the Kindle Fire. Howe

    I believe the Nook is a better reader than the Kindle Fire. However, the power cord problem leads to a door called "Customer Service" and
    believe me, you do not want to open this door. It will leave you feeling infuriated, frustrated, and actually conscious of the rising of your blood
    pressure. You will repeat yourself again, and again, and again. You will be placed on hold while elevator music plays, and tech support 
    types phones keys in your ear. And sometimes you may actually slip into hold limbo. This is when they actually think they have transferred 
    your call to someone or some place who can really and finally help you, but in actuality have only pressed the wrong sequence of keys, and so have in the
    end, only placed you on perpetual hold status. When this happens to you, hopefully you'll be smart enough to realize it before you sit there
    forever like I did.  And people, when you finally reach the point of resolution - the part where you are supposed to feel happy and smart about
    your decision to go with the Nook over the Fire - you'll find yourself feeling cheated somehow. So, what am I really trying tell you? Write a
    letter to Barnes and Noble! Complain! Do something! Barnes and Noble has a BIG problem, and it is not the Nook; it is the customer service.

    Charging cable is available separately for $15, but currently the charging kit (charger plus cable) is also $15. This is not a bad deal because the charger is a standard USB high power charger so it can be used to charge ANY  device, and it's designed so that it fits into a single outlet on a power strip without blocking the adjacent outlets. I have three Nook  HD chargers lined up on my surge protector to charge my Nexus 4, Nexus 7 and Nook HD+.

    So, why cant I just buy the cable??? Oh no, I MUST by the entire kit just to
    replace a cable that won't work eith any other product in the world!!! I can't believe I was that stupid to get suckered into buying a Nook in the first place. I'd have been better of buying an iPad mini and I wouldn't have to jump through so many hoops just to read a book. Oh well, live and learn.

    well the charger cord for my HD gave up the today. battery was at 45% and would not charge, green light came on but would not show that it was
    charging. Changed the cord and now it chargers. Problem is I live in Alaska and no B&N in the southeast part. So now I better order 
    another cord. had the same problem with my other nooks but was hoping the problem was solved with the HD, but 4 months later I have to 
    change the cord. Love the nook for reading, I have over 800 books, the reason I have the nook is to support B&N and the authors but I hope
    they will take the time and take care of their customers.

    I have had my nook HD+ since June of this year. I love the nook

    I have had my nook HD+ since June of this year. I love the nook its self. The charger is a dangerous piece of crap!!! Mine stopped working almost a month ago. The light would turn green then orange then turn off. This is where it got fun! I call customer service get some guy who can not speak English and maybe understands every third word!!! After a good hour of repeating myself he tells me. To plug it up and leave it for a min. or 2. Then it starts smoking!! I told him i had to unplug it because it was smoking and he said no no leave it plugged in!!!!!!!!! He finally gives up after i tell him i prefer my house not in flames. He says i still have my warranty and he will send me one! Almost four weeks later and yep you guessed it. It never came lol. I am not buying one they will send me my free one and i will also be talking to my lawyer about the smoking one!

    I have had Nooks for several years and have for my family, purchased a total of 5, with the last being a Nookk HD+ for me. The Nooks are, in my opinion well made and great for their purpose.. Their ads, however are lies when it comes to the capabilities. While they "say" they are open to the entire Google Play Store, they are not. I have found several just in my search in the last 2 days that do not show up in their version of Google Play. I did, however find that I can go online on my laptop to the Play store, order it and have it sent to my Nook. The one star rating is for their Tech (un)support. It is abysmal and they should honestly be ashamed. The people (I believe in Malaysia) know absolutely nothing except what they read in their scripts. If you ask anything not in it, they want to start over "Just to make sure I heard it right".

    I like the Nook. Hate the charger. I bought two Nook Colors--one in June 2012; one in September 2012. Before November 2012 was over, I had to replace both cords. Then in March 2013 I bought a Nook HD. Now August 2013 I find myself needing to replace that cord as well.  B&N need to make their charger cords better or they will be losing a great amount of customers. Your chargers are made of poo!

    So far I am not impressed with my new nook. Called for tech support via chat room, they were somewhat helpful but no way to print out the chat. I was told to copy and transfer to word document
    but that was impossible.... cheesy-chat. As for spare parts and pieces, cables, chargers, etc. seems very proprietary so they can charge what they want. Keep reading that the cables fall apart after limited use. Hoping that is not the case.

    Can I not just get the block? The cord is fine but I lost the adapter. It seems like a waste of money to get the block and cord. Also, I never had a single problem with your robot-like customer service. Please make the adapter only for sale!.

    I have had my NOOK color for a year and a half and this will be my second cord replacement. I have many other electronic devices that require charging and none of them disintegrate like the NOOK power cord. I wish they would take a note from the curling iron producers.....SOMETHING! At some point my warranty will run out and I will be footing the bill to replace them, or not. It is also not a "universal" plug either, I have not found a replacement yet so B&N has me locked in. Hopefully, they will read these posts and respond.

    The nook is great except for the charger which is awful. Sometimes it charges and sometimes it doesn't. I have to change the adapter and/or go to a different wall outlet to make sure the green light is lit. I agree with everyone else who has the same issue with the charger - VERY poorly made. It should be changed to a micro USB.

    I am joining the ranks of those who find your Customer Service a giant pile of BS. The recorded message options are NOT applicable to my problem, so they just sent me to the website. I also have a power cord problem like so many of these other people. It's JUNK. I only wanted to know if the one for sale online would work for my older Nook, and the models listed did not include mine. If I wanted to go to the website, darn it, I would go to the website. I want to SPEAK to a real person who speaks ENGLISH. Is that too much to ask?. If my NOOK itself ever dies on me, I will NEVER buy another Barnes and Nobles product.
