    Well most of you already know that NC's USB cable's tip is delicate & today I broke it :(

    I Googled & found that those Non B&N cables take a lot of time compared to original ones. Is it true ? Or Cheap cables also work ?

    Some Black Berry phone cables are also similar [USB Hot sync] can I use them ?

    Problem is I am from India & importing original cable costs a bomb :-/

    they still giving free cable replacement or stopped ? I know they never ship it to India :p

    Avi, how did yours break exactly? I am being very careful with mine since I'm also not from the US. If I break mine, then it'd be a lot of trouble to get a replacement too.

    @SP Mine apparently broke trying to support the weight of it's own cord. I had the nook on a table with the connector sticking out over the edge and the cord hanging down to the floor where the charger was plugged in. After a while I noticed the orange light looked funny and saw the connector had broken. It's very fragile. Maybe coating it with clear nail polish or something to strengthen it would help.

    Thank Spider. On it's own weight? Jeez, it is fragile. I've been careful enough not to bang the ends or anything but this just scares me.

    I've read about the nail polish but haven't given it much thought. I've got some epoxy that would probably hold it better sans the look...

    I think you're right, epoxy would probably be stronger, Just don't cover up the cute little Orange/Green light.:rolleyes:
