    I brought the Scosche Dual USB car charger, since I carry my stock usb Nook Color cord around in my case. The Scosche does 2amps (1amp per port).
    Amazon.com: Scosche Dual USB Car Charger: Cell Phones & Accessories

    The USB port from you pc does .5amps and the Nook Color wall charger does 1.9amps, so this Scosche is charges are a pretty good rate plus I can use it for all my devices that use USB charging.

    has a built in 150 watt inverter and I got mine for $9.95 at ACE Hardware on Black Friday.
    Reg. $19.95 still a good deal!

    According to the link, it does 1A divided among the two ports. So 500mA would be your charge rate.

    Yea I know, it's wrong. I think they made a revision or amazon sent me the wrong one. I orded the one in the link I posted and they sent me one that does 1amp x 2.

    hmm just found this one on amazon, which looks like it is the one I have. Mind you did odered the other one and just checked my order history to confirm.
    Amazon.com: Scosche Dual USB Auto Car Charger Power Adapter for Motorola Atrix 4G 1 Amp x 2 Port: Cell Phones & Accessories

    They must have run out and sent me the better one.

    I just ordered the one that is 1 amp for 2 ports.reVIVE dual USB car charger from Scosche.. it was like $8.95 -- Each port provides 500 mA of power for a quick and efficient charge

    the other one this one it is $12.95.... looks like the same thing only is higher priced.....
    did I order the wrong one ??

    I have a Coby Kyros tablet and use a 2A car charger that is USB, made for iPad but it works fine. I had to make a custom USB to power pin cable.
    I bought a
    Newegg.com - Kensington K33497US PowerBolt Duo USB Auto Adapter & Charger for iPad1&2/iPhone 4 w/ Sync Cable
    If you want to see the Kyros thread it's here:
    http://www.androidtablets.net/forum/coby-generation-1-accessories/5092-kyros-car-charger.html
    The big difference is the Kyros charges with a power pin connection, not the USB connection.

    We think our next tablet will be the NookColor so I'm learning more.

    My questions for those here:
    Why is the NookColor saying only charge from the wall? Is the PC-USB spec of 0.5A just to wimp to do the job?
    Please tell me what the power brick says: like OP: 5V 2A --- IP: 50-60 Hz 110-220V Or post a photo of the brick's label.
    Thanks in advance.

    1. Yes, most chargers provide just 0.5A which is not enough to charge the Nook (though it can extend the life of a charged nook plugged into such a source).
    2. I'll have to look.

    Thanks J515OP and Stumblethru,
    I just found the spec on the Barnes & Noble site and was coming back to post.
    My concern was that Output was 5V so all is still USB spec. Just needs enough juice.
    I did try a 350mA car charger on my Coby, the power light comes on but the charger was really heating up. Gotta have the right Amps.
