Is the Nook USB/AC Charger the same as Kindle?

Not sure I'm using the correct terms.  I have a Kindle for which I have a spare usb/AC plug (one to travel with and one to keep at home). I'd like to know if I can use the Kindle charger for the nook. If not, then I'll probably buy a spare charger for my Nook which I just ordered.

The USB connector for the Nook  is described as a micro USB connector. The Nook AC charger accessory  seems to be universal, I can charge my IPOD touch and my Sansa Clip with it. Probably not a helpful answer.

On one end of the nook cord is the micro usb connection (same thing that works my cheap cell phone and a blackberry - pretty universal) and the other end is the usb connection like a standard usb/flash/jump drive that goes into a computer.  The nook comes with a plug adapter that the usb/flash/jump part goes into.

 

If you buy one somewhere online, get a longer cord.  I had to buy another wall plug because I misplaced mine. That was before I realized I could charge it with my cell phone charger.

Thanks, all.

 

I don't have my Nook in hand yet.  Anyway, the Kindle USB charger description says that one end is a micro USB connection, so I guess it will work. I would assume that since they're similar products that the voltage or whatever is the same? I'm not very techie, but I do know that although some items have the same type of connections, the voltage or whatever may not be compatible.

 

I like having an extra charger around, but I also am trying to cut down on the amount of accesories, wire, etc.
