Works great.

Not sure what's up with all of the negative reviews on this adapter. It worked just fine on my Nook STR (Simple Touch Reader). In fact it's so simple, I'm amazed anyone can have trouble with it. Are you guys trying to eat it or something?

I have had my Nook Color for only a few months, and the power cord is already separating from plug-in. The man at B & N told me that lots of people are having the same trouble. If this is so, I think you should furnish free replacements until you correct the problem. We are caught between the rock and the hard place -- the Nook won't work without the charger, and I have gotten very used to having it at hand when I need it. In addition to the fact that I put out a lot of money for the Nook Color, I don't have a lot of extra money to waste since I am retired and living on a pension. PLEASE HELP!

    Wow, I feel so sorry for the Nook Color customers, I have the Nook Simple Touch with Glow Light and love it. I've had it for more than a year and the charger is like new. I am only purchasing a 2nd charger for travel (I recently left the charger behind and had to wait for it to be mailed back to me, Ugh) I hope the new charger will be as good as my original.

    REDUCE issues with power cords a lot by simply keeping the contacts clean on the cords the device and charger. I use "DeOxit D" and it works. Without cleaning my power cord has problems after a month or so. With DeOxit D, the cord works perfect. So does a half dozen other NOOK owners that had charging problems. This isn't some "fluke" problem, but the cure is simple and effective.

    I've had just one, original charger for my Nook Simple Touch for two years without a problem. My Nook is so old it was just called a "Nook" when I bought it, since the Nook Color (and then Tablet, etc) were yet to be released.

    I find the charger so much smaller and thus more handy than my Android phone charger that I'm buying a second one to simply carry in my briefcase to be a universal charger for both phone and Nook. BTW, the socket and voltage all work with current Verizon phones. You need to make sure the amperage will send sufficient power for your phone, however. In my case it works perfectly with an old Casio Commando.

    I've had my Nook Simple Touch for almost a year now and have never had a problem with my cord. I even use it to charge my phone after my husband stole all the other charging cords (the Nook symbol marks it as MINE).
