Original Kobo/Kobo Wifi charger?

So, my mother has a Kobo wifi that she hasn't used in a year or so and now she can't find the charging cable for it. I told her to try one of the micro USB chargers lying around her house, as I know they work on my Touch, but she's saying it doesn't fit. Did the original Kobo and/or Wifi use a different charging connection or is she just doing something completely wrong here?

Google is turning up basically nothing and any help would be greatly appreciated.

The original and WiFi used a larger connector (although still a standard type). I *THINK* it's called a Mini-B connector.

Yes, it's MINI USB connecter you're looking for.
