Replacement Nook Tablet Cable?

Hello,

 

Does anyone know where a replacement charger cable can be found for the Nook Tablet?  On BN.com it shows as not available and there are none at any stores near me.

 

Thanks.

I normally don't bump my own posts but...anyone have any ideas? I can try a normal USB cord but was hoping to replace it with an official cable.

At eBay and Amazon.

 

Nook Tablet can use a normal USB cable. It works fine. I've tried it with cables from other tablets.

Re: Replacement Nook Tablet Cable?

So I could use the USB from my phone charger?  or does it have to be a tablet USB?

Yes, any cable that has the correct end-plug will do.

 

Lots of people on this forum and the Interent have mentioned using Motorola chargers and other phone chargers.

Strange, that's the first thing I tried was my phone charger which which looks to have the same plug. It must be very close but have some subtle difference that it won't plug in. I'll see if I can get a different cable and give it a shot. Thanks.

Re: Replacement Nook Tablet Cable?

I took my Nook Tablet (first edition not hd) to Barnes and Noble to see why it wasn't charging.  I had the original cord but was using the part that plugs into the outlet from my first edition nook wifi/3g.  They told me I have to have the original black nook tablet plug but they don't have them in store or online. 

 

What is up with that?  The tablet isn't even  a  year old and I can't purchase power cords for it?  Has anyone used a different power source for their Nook Tablet 7 inch?

1) You can charge from a PC or laptop via USB. Slower but works.

 

2) You can find at an Electronics store a wall plug that has USB port for your Nook cable and also has following specifications:

 

Output: 5V ~ 1.9A

The Office Depots in my area (Northern CA) carry nooks and accessories.

Just thought I'd pass along that someone posted on another thread that they are available from Frys online site.  They are selling them for $19.99.

Does this only apply if we bought the Nook from them? My husband bought mine at Best Buy.

Our local B&N stocks them behind the counter so you may have to ask for one. BTW- we are going back for our second replacement! They are so flimsy!! :smileymad:

I'm still on my first one, and it show no signs of breaking.  Oh, and I have NookColor, so I've had mine longer since I bought it before the Nook Tablet was released.

This is no longer true. They've told me to go to local B&N and BUY one. Local B&N tells me we Nook Tablet owners are not important. Calling or even chatting with B&N results in them hanging up.

Yes, for 9.99 + shipping they will send you another crappy cord.  So sorry that I bought it in the first place.

Re: Replacement Nook Tablet Cable?

After trying for over a week to get a new cord, I have finally received it.  But it doesn't appear to be charging my Tablet.  Customer Service was a pain.  Couldn't order on-line & chat told me I had to call the 1-800 number.  It took 18 minutes to order the cord.  When it didn't arrive as promised, that was another 18 minutes of trying to get another ordered after the 1st person hung up on me.  When I still didn't get that one, it took another hour to finally figure something out.  The last time I called the young lady did everything she could to help before transferring me (after a wait) to Digitized Support who sent me another cord.  Wonder if it's my battery?
