Bent NOOK Tablet Charger

I plugged the charger into my NOOK Tablet for the first time, and I noticed that it seems bent.  For example, if I hold the Tablet parallel to the floor (while it's connected to the charger), the charger looks like it is leaning towards the floor instead of also being parallel to the floor.  I'm afraid that this will warp the port on the NOOK and the charger.  Again, this is the FIRST time I've plugged in the NOOK... right out of the box.  Anyone else experiencing this?

A slight downward angle is what I see on my connections.

Nooks: 2 Touch (one Ltd. Ed.): B&N 1.2.1 rooted; 1stEd/3G: B&N 1.7.0 rooted;
    2 HD+/16GB: B&N 2.2.0 (Android 4.0.4) rooted (one for sale)
Dell Venue 8 Pro: Windows 8.1; Samsung Galaxy Tab2 7.0": Android 4.2.2 rooted
LG G3 & G Pad 8.3 Android 4.4.2 rooted; Acer Iconia A500: Android 4.0.3 rooted
Customer loyalty is earned, not commanded or deserved, and easily lost.
Never suspect intent where incompetence will do.

Re: Bent NOOK Tablet Charger

So the slight downward angle is typical and normal?

Re: Bent NOOK Tablet Charger

B&N is aware of this cheap charger but chooses to do nothing about it, expecting US to buy new charges as these continually break.  I've not had ANY other charger break.  It is sad that B&N doesn't care about their customers after purchace.  I guess I'm going to move to Kindle.  I am needing a 3rd charger for the same Nook very soon.  Once they bend, you are living on borrowed time.  Again, shame on B&N.  I complained about this issue and was basically told, "tough luck, buy another".
