as i blogged a few days ago, i got a nook (german). as this device only sells in the US it comes with a US power supply. lucky me that the supply supports 100-240 Volts out of the box. so the hack to adapt it to european power outlets was rather simple.

i found myself an old device which didn’t need the jack anymore. cut that off and had the perfect part to connect the original US plug to the cables within the new plug.

the soldering for this is easy as well. just connect the two cables. nothing can be done wrong here. except that the soldering might fall off again.

after that i just added sugru to the game. i put some inside and made sure the cables didn’t touch. then i pressed the parts together and formed this ‘belt’ around the neck of the jack. to cure this i fixed it with scotch tape and two corks.
