Not sure.  Have you read it to find out?  I believe when you use your extended warranty, it's done with, so I'm not sure I'd use it to replace a faulty charger anyway.

Re: games

Don't hijack a thread about warranty to ask about games.

Re: games

I think the poster realized his/her mistake, because they did make a separate post asking the same question.

If it doesn't, there is nothing too magical about that charger.  You can buy a new one from B&N and they have them in most stores:

Or you can walk into most electronics store or even visit Amazon.com and pick up a replacement wall charger for an iPhone for under four bucks, or this replacement Wall Charger for just over two bucks.

 

If you have a Android phone most of them use the same charger.

 

The cord for the charger is sold separately and don't pay more than two bucks for that.

 

So, short answer:  Don't waste your warranty for a charger or a cord.

Re: extended nook warranty

I have a problem with my charger today, and I brought it in to BN, the manager call the ware house to get my charger replace, since I just got my Nook color on xmast, and I also purchased the extended warrantee.  So you mean that my warrantee is done   when I recieve my new charger? in that case it is a rip off.

@ gotbook,

 

No, it doesn't mean you've used your extended warranty.  It probably means that a nice manager acknowledged that your charger was defective and got you a new one.

Re: extended nook warranty

@gotbook,

 

As Josienjoe said it was probably just a store manager being nice and just exchanging your charger since yours was apparently defective. 

 

As to the question of "So you mean that my warrantee is done   when I recieve my new charger? in that case it is a rip off." why didn't you just ask the manager when you were in the store getting the charger exchanged??

gotbook: except for mishandling (dropping, etc.), the extended warranty doesn't begin until the manufacturer's warranty ends. The charger replacement was either made under the manufacturer's warranty or, as others have suggested, just out of fairness. There have been a number of reports of problems with NOOKcolor chargers and cables.

 

So nothing to worry about.
