Default Any relatively cheap and GOOD slimports?

Hey guys
ill get my N5 soon and i got 32GB just so that i can easily use the phone to see movies and shows that i store on the phone - on a TV.

but for that i need a slimport - i dont think these things should cost 30-50 USD, its just a damn adapter, like the VGA/DVI or DVI/HDMI and those cost like a dollar..

so did anyone here order something cheaper that is a charger+port and works great without tearing a hole in the pocket?

ty!

p.s
if you got one of the expensive ones and they work well please do share

I bought the original SP1002 for the N4 then after an OS update it was useless because it kept showing blue screen flickers while watching movies. Also the charging was terrible, the battery would run down faster than it could charge. They then released the SP1003 to fix these issues. I'll never buy an Analogix product again for this reason, so it would be nice to see some alternatives.

I used this one for N4 and N5:
http://www.amazon.com/Slimport-Adapt...words=slimport

It works as promised, but the charging rate is limited to USB speed (-100~+50mA with screen on with 2A generic car charger).

I'm currently using SP1003 for my N5, and this one seems to get AC charging speed (400~500mA),
and it actually says "AC charging" on the phone too. Phone has stock kernel.

The AC charging seems tot be unrelated to the sp1003. I'm using the sp1002 and still get AC charging with stock kernel. I also get noise/snow/flicker when the GPRS signal drops (I use slimport in my car)
