We reconsidered the quantum gravity description of the near horizon extremal Reissner-Nordstrøm black hole in the viewpoint of the AdS 2/CFT1 correspondence. We found that, for pure electric case, the right moving central charge of dual 1D CFT is 6Q2 which is different from the previous result 6Q3 of left moving sector obtained by warped AdS3/CFT2 description. We discussed the discrepancy in these two approaches and examined novel properties of our result.
