Gen3: alternative mains chargers?

The plug on my Gen3's mains charger disintegrated earlier - the earth pin snapped off in the socket, and the plug cover fell apart (I only gave it a gentle tug ).

Anyone have any suggestions for a cheap replacement (preferably available in the UK)?

I saw this on the Maplins site; just wondering if there's any other alternatives.

That'll work just fine - I bought something very similar from Maplins for £3 or so.

That other Maplins one at £19.99 - that's a crazy price!

Cheers jljones and Harry - I was hoping there'd be something cheaper than what I found.

Just thought it may be of interest to mention that I purchased the charger jljones kindly pointed out.

It's a bargain - £3.99, no p&p, arrived in a couple of days and it does the job.

Recommended!

Didn't notice the Free P&P on the amazon page (not usual for £3.99) so found the same thing from Play.com for the same price with free P&P.

Should pay more attention in future!

ps Just noticed that quidco has given me cashback on the adaptor, so my not paying attention has made me a whole 16p better off. I can put that 16p towards - erm- something costing more than 16p :-)
