Default Magnetic Chargers

I've been looking for a charger that attaches to the side dock on the Z2. I bought one on EBay very cheap but the charging from seems to connect then disconnect all the time. I guess that's what I get for buying a cheap unit. Is there a good one that will charge the Z2 properly? I'm sure the flap to the micro usb is going to come off sooner or later so I'd rather use the magnetic one.

I'm happy with 'kwmobile' charger bought on amazon.de, especially I like the fact that magnet is not too strong therefore I don't have a fear that magnetic port will fall out. I hope so ...

I bought a dirt cheap one from ebay too, works fine although the magnets aren't very strong so the amount of time I spend fiddling to get it to latch on I may as well use a micro usb!

Best I've come across, a bit more expensive though.
It fits very snugly over the charging port, so if you use case this cable might not go well with it.

I just recently bought a z2, came with a knock off dock.

Doesn't anyone have a good free alarm clock app thatll stay dimly lit all night and work as a bedside clock.

Thanks

Gentle Alarm will, it isn't free, but it's worth the cost.

I've heard that, I got a free app called timely and it works great, with smart connect it automatically goes into silent + opens timely when I dock.

Word of warning with magnetic chargers, don't be stupid like me and turn the charger the other way around to see if it connects better, you will end up shorting something inside your phone and you will have to RMA your device
