I just stepped into a B&N and trying to get my free charger. No luck. I was told about the warranty information and was told if bought new, the warranty will be covered for 14 days or if I purchased an aadditional warranty, that would get it covered. I had neither of course but a two year warranty is only $34 and covers accidental damage too. I just thought that was not bad to mention here. I was also told to try and call customer service and see what I can do not tto mention that the B&N associate also randomly picked up a new charger and was getting ready to ring it up for me without confirming with me!

Shouldn't we pursue a class action suit? The shark lawyers would do it for free, and we just need to wait.

I called over the weekend and since my NC was 2 months out of warrenty, they wouldn't do it. Bummed and the customer support had no sympathy.

There aren't any reviews? Is it really the high current version? How is build quality? Would rather get a few of these than deal with 3 more stock cables delaminating!

Since it's listed as a generic cable, I'd seriously doubt it's going to be the high current one.

My third cable literally fell apart today. The black microUSB section, with the light, came apart. Unfortunately, I only know where the section with the Nook logo light could be found. It's out of warranty too, so won't be getting a free cable that way. May have to see if I can salvage the plastic connector off an older cable I just happened to have laying around.

This cable is really lousy considering the quality of the tablet overall. Maybe someone will come up with an aftermarket replacement some day. Is the Nook Tablet cable just as wonky??

I went to my local B&N store and they gave me a Nook Tablet cable for my Nook Color. So far it has held up well while traveling in Afghanistan. It feels slightly better around the Nook symbol area. That's where my last one fell apart. I had used it for a month using tape to hold it together before I had a chance to get a new one back home. The rep gave me mine for free but that also might be due to mentioning where I was using it.

I have been thinking that a simple design change for the cable would be: the extended micro usb plug, a short run of wire (about 1"?) then the lighted n module and finally the rest of the cable to the usb plug.

This should eliminate most if not all of the stress on the n module as there would be 2 flex points.

Something similar could be done if there is a such thing as a short extended micro usb patch cord that could be used in between the NC and the factory cord.

So, B&N is starting to not be cool about replacing the chargers? I was going to call customer service tomorrow to get one replaced. Hopefully they'll do it. I got mine for Christmas, so 5 months out. I guess I'll see.

money saving, nook cables
