    To those who say that any usb car charger will work, you are wrong. I've tried it with the one I have and it doesn't charge my nook hd+. Through research I've found out that it is proprietary and you have to purchase a nook car charger in order to charge it. I am plannn on purchasing this one and am hoping it works for my nook.

    Works as expected. Love the long cord. As others have mentioned, the plug is difficult to remove, but I found that if i twist as I'm pulling, it comes out much easier.

    If you have a USB plug in your car, you can charge your Nook hd+ with it & don't need an extra car charger.

    The majority of these reviews are for other products.  This does what it is supposed to for the correct device.

    Why don't you offer just the adapter? You sell the cables separately (I know, I bought two extra ones) but not the car adapter singly. I already have extra Nook cables, and I don't need another one. It's also completely ridiculous that the USB port in my brand new (2 months old) car, can't charge this tablet. High speed USB outlet chargers I've bought also won't charge this table, yet will charge any iOS devices and just about any smartphone. You need to offer separate "charge-only" cables instead of only charge/data/sync cables - then just about any USB port will work, if the power is sufficient. But you just want to cash in, apparently.

    This product works so poorly that I am surprised B&N carries it.  The adapter is extremely difficult to get into your car's power outlet, and even more difficult to remove.  The flush design gives you nothing to grip.  The end that connects to your NOOK will NOT stay connected.  It is just so poorly made that you will have to keep reconnecting it, or when you arrive at your destination you will find that the NOOK is no more charged than it was when you left home.   The adapter that I use to charge everything else in my car will not work with the cable that came with the NOOK.  Really, B&N should not sell this shabby product.

    I do find it difficult to remove from the socket in my car. I've added a handle made from filament packing tape that allows me to pull it out without difficulty.

    I already have the USB cable, I just need the charger adapter....can I buy without the cable? No reason for me to spent money on what I already have. Thanks!!

    If I had known ahead of time that, the Nook HD+ could not be charged from any USB port, but only one that is propitiatory, to Nook only, I would have told my Wife not to buy it.  Charging 25.00 for a car charger is simply outrageous and I refuse to pay it.  Nook is definitely off my list for my next tablet.

    This adapter is the pits! It is hard to push into the female outlet in the car n virtually impossible to remove....I have  had to drive into a gas station n ask a man to pull out the adapter. You just about need a crowbar to remove it. Thinking it was just this one particular adapter, I returned it to B n N and got a second one. SAME problem....piece of crap. Sell a product that works or dont sell them...sucks! Next e reader will either be  Kindle or ipad...no,I dont read n drive..but I am the passenger who would like to read on a long car trip!!!!

    This unit is too expensive for the use it get in our car besides all other adapters will NOT WORK with the Nook HD+ because of the priority use of their (B&N) cable is a must if you need a car charger. So if you have extra $$$ to throw out the window than I guess you can afford to have it.

    Will not fit in either the car nor van. Head is too wide to sit in properly.

    Ordered one of the "real Nook" auto charger. It will not charge my NOOK in my car. Previously tried several "regular" car chargers, they don't work either. Also needed a pair of plyers to remove the Nook Charger from the outlet. Very disappointed as we do some road trips, I was hoping I could charge my Nook Tablet on the road. Don't purchase!

    I ordered this because I had lost the original charger to my Nook. The day before it was suppose to show up, (which it didn't) We found the charger. Although the order came 2 days late. I tried it out and it works great on my Nook HD + However I only gave it 3 stars because I haven't tried out the car charger part yet. Once I do and if it works I will up my stars.

    I bought this car charger, I put it in the car and could not remove it. The charger melted and cost me nearly $100 to have the charging unit in the car replaced. I will NEVER use a nook car charger again.

    I tried to charge my nook HD in my car plugged into the USB port. It still would not charge and I have a charger that looks like this one. Still nothing,

    Well, all the problems with the plug have become moot: they are not available at all, anywhere. I guess they told us!

    I just purchased a new Mazda 6 I Grand Touring Edition and the Bose audio system has Bluetooth. When I drive my week old car, I like to listen to my music instead of searching for a radio station with something good on. It would be nice to have a connector so I could charge my Nook while listening to it and have a fresh charge for what  I need it for when I arrive at my destination.

    I'm on my second Nook; having started with the original Nook Color and am now enjoying my Nook HD+ 32G.  I love them!   That being said; I do have an issue with the car charger.  The adapter that plugs into the car is extremely difficult to plug in and even more difficult to remove.  Also, it's disappointing that it won't charge via the USB port in my new car. The cables for the Nooks, in general, have always been troublesome.  I had to replace the cable for my original Nook five times because it seemed to be so fragile.  I think the issue is the placement of where it plugs into the device (on the bottom).  I would suggest that, during the next redesign, the cable should plug into the top or side of the device. Thank goodness for the warranty; I only had to pay for one of the five replacement cables!

    Can't use this charger in a Tractor-Trailer, Camper, etc. I'm sure it works in a car but when it comes to charging a Nook HD+ in a larger vehicle, it will not charge without needing a DC to AC Adapter then using the OEM AC Adapter.

    I think B & N should sell just the charging head that the cord plugs into because you already get two cords with your Nook. I don't really need three cords for one device. So that's something you might want to consider.
