I have 2 Nooks - the original and the second generation one. I noticed that the charger for the original is not supposed to work in the second generation - but it has been working albeit more slowly than the one that comes with the second generation Nook.
Question No.1: Will I damage the second generation Nook if I continue to charge it with the first generation's charger?
Question No. 2: I leave my original Nook in my locker at the gym all the time and read it while working out. I don't have access to an electrical outlet to recharge its battery near my locker. I would like to find a portable, external charger that is small enough to carry in my pocket to and from the gym. I would recharge the portable external charger at home, then carry it to the gym and use it to recharge the Nook's battery overnight in my locker. Is there such a charger on the market for original Nooks?
