I'm thinking to root my new Nook Simple Touch, but I read a post about high power consumption after. How serious this issue is?
Any other problems I should be aware of?

Also, which option do you recommend for rooting ? this one or this one ?

Thank you.

I can't comment on the battery consumption. I used the RootManager option (the second) to root mine and it was 'easy peasy'.

Any significant changes in your experience after rooting (faster/slower, better/worse, etc) ?

Rooted mine and piled a bunch of apps on. Made no discernable difference to power consumption had it six weeks or so. Charged it twice. Nuff said!
I used the second option too, btw. Make sure you back up and you can always undo whatever you do
