Not to mention the plug and the socket: two days ago I inadvertently 
left my n800 charging while my roomba was working, so dear old roomba 
decided to eat the cable, throwing my n800 on the floor (from a height 
of around 50cm). The n800 wasn't damaged, but both the charger plug and 
the socket were. Now the plug (both the damaged one and the brand new 
car charger one) wouldn't fit as snugly in the socket as before, so it 
will start charging but if I breathe in its direction it's enough to 
unseat the plug :-(
I tried to lift the ground contact in the socket with a pin but it 
doesn't help, as soon as I insert the plug it goes back.
Why didn't nokia stay with the previous, sturdier, connector? It doesn't 
seem that big to me.
And, is the socket easy to find or do I have to buy a complete 
replacement back cover?
