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.

Re: Can I use a car charger to charge the nook?

It won't work. The voltage isnt the same. I did try it. Bottom line.......it doe not work. It said "plug in charger now or nook will turn off and it did just that!

You are in the Nook First Edition forum, and for the N1E, it does work, the voltage is the same.

In any event, the VOLTAGE will be "the same": 5V for USB.

 

However, a USB 2 hub is only rated for 500mA ( distributed over the ports) so unless one has a high current port (hub or stand alone charger) the LCD Nooks will need to be put into sleep mode (after connection, since most will wake up when a charger is connected) for upwards of four times normal.
