Which cable for a Color Nook?

Strangely, I couldn't find specific information on this anywhere.

I want an extra data cable for syncing my Color Nook to the PC. I realize there are quick-charging issues that won't be supported.

I don't want to pay B&N $15 for a cable and figured I'd order one off ebay or somewhere. What exactly do I need to order? I think it's a Micro USB connector, is that right? Will any "Micro USB" cable work? Should I get a regular (non-color) Nook cable?

I have mini USB cables from my cameras and a smartphone, but those are slightly fat.

Thanks.

I ordered some Motorola adapters on the web. They convert mini to micro USB & cost around $2.50 shipped. That way I can use all my old mini USB cables & be compatible with my other devices that use mini USB.

Cheers,

For data transfer any micro USB cable will work.
