Default I need a Fuze cable

Hello! Long time lurker, first time poster. I just moved, and as a result I have lost the USB/charger cable for my Fuze. In the next hour or so it will become an unusable paperweight. I've looked everywhere, and I can't find it, so I started looking on eBay. I see a few reasonably priced cables, but I'm kind of hesitant to buy from random eBay strangers. What should I be looking for, to make sure the cable I buy is a valid and compatible one? Thanks!

Go to Amazon.com, and type "Sansa Fuze cable" in the search box, and you'll have plenty of options.

That is a lot of options. Thanks!

Will all cables on Amazon be valid Sansa cables? That was my main concern with eBay, since I don't want to lose my warranty, or waste time and money on a cable that won't work. For example, I found this very cheap one, but it's so cheap that alone worries me.

I've ordered the $0.11 cable I found. It's cheap, so if it doesn't work it's no big deal. Thank you for the help!

The cable for the Fuze is also the same cable for E200/C200 series, for which cheap accessory kits with the cable and chargers can often be found.

FWIW, I bought this:
http://cgi.ebay.com/CLEAR-CASE-USB-C...item5ad67d810c

Seller is excellent. My mom recently bought 4 Fuzes for friends and had me order her 4 sets of these.

The case is quite great, with very close and surprisingly good tolerances. Look on Amazon for this clear case - there is a video from someone instructing people on how to remove the case [it can be a bit tricky, but it is possible].

The cable is 100% reliable from what I have seen - fit is perfect.

The car charger works fine as well as the wall charger. As a bonus, I now have an extra wall charger for my Blackberry after purchasing this kit.

This package was recommended by someone here on ABI a while ago - I can say it is indeed worth it.

I thought I'd update this with how the cheap Amazon cable is working out.

It worked great, so my Fuze has now returned from paper-weight land and plays music for me again. Thanks again for helping me out!
