Since 1997, you’ve been coming to BarnesandNoble.com to discuss everything from Stephen King to writing to Harry Potter. You’ve made our site more than a place to discover your next book: you’ve made it a community. But like all things internet, BN.com is growing and changing. We've said goodbye to our community message boards—but that doesn’t mean we won’t still be a place for adventurous readers to connect and discover.

Now, you can explore the most exciting new titles (and remember the classics) at the Barnes & Noble Book Blog. Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction. Come to our Facebook page to weigh in on what it means to be a book nerd. Browse digital deals on the NOOK blog, tweet about books with us,or self-publish your latest novella with NOOK Press. And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

Question

Hi there! Ok I have a N1E w/3G. And no intent to sell it so I need a new charger my old one is well seen better days. I haven't been to a B&N store in a while so my question is does B&N still sell the charger that I need? Or could a charger from the new nooks work? I haven't looked at any of the new nooks up close. Can sombody help? Thank you!

Just about any USB charger will work.

 

The charger for the NOOK Simple Touch will work fine in the N1E. I have also used an iPhone charger, an iPad charger, and a Samsung Galaxy phone charger to charge the N1E.

Re: Question

It's a standard micro-USB connector, that you can pick up at any electronics store for a couple bucks.  B&N overcharges for them, frankly. 

 

Here's a Blackberry connector of the right type from Amazon, to get an idea what you need: http://www.amazon.com/Blackberry-Charger-Adapter-Power-Storm2/dp/B00474KHBW

 

But I'd check your local stores.

Re: Question

Yeah, for the N1E, it's a garden-variety 500ma USB charger. Just about any charger with the appropriate USB plug will work fine. You probably have some lying around from mobile phones.

 

I think the N2E (Simple Touch Reader) uses the same charger. You'd have to take a look at the specs (between the prongs).

 

The NOOK Color definitely uses a non-standard charger. I suspect the Tablet might also, but I don't know.

You think correctly, it's the same micro-USB connector cable, though the NST no longer comes with the wall plug.  BN charges $10(!!!!) to get the wall plug separately.
