US plug for charger

I'd like to be able to convert my Linx 8 charger from UK to US plug rather than use a separate adaptor. Anyone know where I can get the US fitting?

One option would be to simply buy a US 5v 2A charger like this:

No idea of the quality - just an example

I should have included "or buy another charger" in my original post!

That one looks dubious, though, & somewhat on the bulky side. . . £3.49 isn't, I think, going to buy a top quality product! If I do buy another charger I'll get one with a full range of plugs to cover any country I'm likely to go to.

Still awaiting a reply from Exertis on this.

Not long ago, I bought a genuine Blackberry playbook charger. It's a high output charger, and you can change the adaptor ends - mine came with UK, EU, US but not AUS/NZ - so almost all corners covered!

I love the oxymoron (four corners of the globe).
