Default alternative charging dock for tablet Z? (cheaper)

Does anyone know if there exists an alternative dock than the official Tablet Z charging dock?

50€ for a bunch of plastic + 2 pogo pins is too expensive for me (but necessary to maintain the waterproofness)


PS: The magnetic charging cable for my wife's Z1 compact don't stick and the holes don't fit that's too bad...


edit: other than the Argos one that is "Currently out of stock for home delivery to:NN35HG"
