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...
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.

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.

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.

    You don't need to buy this

    I purchased my nook simple touch September 2011 and it came with a cord that lets me charge via USB computer or the wall.

    My mother just bought the Nook Simple Touch today and it did NOT include an adapter, but I have several 5v power adapters that I tested with it and work just fine, so no need to buy this.

    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.
