I got my nook for Christmas so it is still brand spanking new, but I noticed a high pitched electrical whine coming from the charger, more specifically, the place where the USB is plugged into the wall outlet. It doesn't make this whine while plugged into my laptop? Additionally, I definitely don't get 8 days of power, more like 4 days, and I've had it on airplane mode with the lowest bright level for the screen and shortest time for the screen to stay on. I
What's causing this and is my charger faulty? Can I go into a BN store to question them?

Unplug the charger from the wall. Do not plug it into the wall again until you have returned to Barnes and Noble to obtain either a new charger or a new nook.
If this is a nook wifi or nook 3g, 4-5 days is about the norm depending on how much it is used. Battery life is most dependent on the number of pages turned. If you haven't, disable auto adjust brightness for the touch screen.
