Will NC accept any mini USB (micro USB?) cable for Charging?

Will the nook color accept any mini USB (or is it micro USB?) cable to be used with it's AC power adapter or does one have to use the cable that's included with the charger sold through Barnes & Noble? I ask because I'm disabled with limited dexterity and have almost ruined one of these cords already when the small connector was badly bent. I'm actually considering selling the nook because of this. Thanks!

For powercharging you need the special NC cable.
I do not know if you can use the NC charger with a regular micro-usb cable for regular usb-charging. Just try it.

You can use any micro-usb charger to usb-charge the NC. This will be slower (about 8 hours to fully charge) and you will not see a charging message on the screen.

One thing you should not do with the NC cable is using the NC while charging. That will cause the cable to fail.
