usb data cable UK

Hi,
I need a data cable but cannot find a UK one other than an ebay dealer that is unreliable.

Any ideas really appreciated

Thanks

Assuming it's for your PRS505:
AFAIK you can use a standard mini usb cable, available in most (online) electronic stores. For instance this one on Amazon.com.

If you have a digital camera or mobile phone with mini usb the cable from that should work fine. I mix and match mine all the time

It's just an example, if you go to a Dixons, Currys or Jessops they will have it in stock. As C1yat said you probably have multiple lying around from cameras, mp3 players, etc

Amazon UK also got it in stock: link

I have so many of these, they come with most gadgets as it's a pretty standard port now. I can send you one if you PM me your address, free of course as they're cheap anyhow

Even my pedometer uses the same USB cable as my 505.

Wow, my pedometer just counts my steps. Not more, not less.
Didn't know they have them with USB ports.

This is the one I am using now. It holds 30 (7 viewable on the device) days of normal/aerobic steps, distance, and kcal data in memory and the software is an excellent motivator. So to keep it on topic the OP can buy the USB cable pictured in the link for $32.95 and get a nice pedometer and software for free.

I'm a little surprised that you weren't able to buy one. Where did you look?

Sorry for being offtopic. The pedometer looks great. The price is fairly high though. Ok, end of offtopic.

Ontopic: I have some left over USB-cables myself. If anyone needs one....

No probs Lawrie, I have a drawer full of random leads and I jump at the opportunity to find a use for them! It shuts up the nagging voice in my head that says "Throw them out, you'll never use it!".

So, thanks for silencing the voices lol
