Default MHL Cable/Adaptor Recomendation

Hi,

Does anyone on this forum use their Z2 over MHL?

I was wondering what MHL Cable / Adaptor you would recomend.

I have seen a Sony one, but is is very expensive (30).
I was wondering what the thoughts on the cheaper ones were.


Thanks
in Advance.

Sorry forgot to post back ( on holiday ). The maplin cable works like a dream but requires power if your tv isn't mhl compliant

I bought two adapters now and will test, but how new does a television have to be to be mhl compatible? Leaving on holiday tomorrow and would like to use my Xperia2 on the TV in the room, any good guesses on if that's a longshot?

I bought this:
amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00CI42C4S/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i02?ie=UTF8&psc=1
which works perfectly but on my TV requires a separate power source for the MHL.
