Where can I buy a cradle for a Palm VX?

I'm trying to resurrect an old Palm VX - but the cradle is toast... I can find some sites that will sell me a charger - but I want to sync too... I'm not keen on buying a whole new VX and charger from ebay, as this seems wasteful to me. Any advice or suggestions would be much appreciated. Sorry if this is a little quixotic...

This is off the top of my head, but the Vx can sync via IR, right? (I used to use one, but that was years ago). Perhaps you could find a cheap IR receiver - maybe by buying a used IR remote control/mouse - and use that to sync it. You'd have to buy the charger separately then, but it might work.

Checkout item 130057413324 - Buy It Now for $2.99 plus $7.49 shipping - but this is just a sync cable.

I have no connection with the seller - this is just the first thing that came up in a "palm vx sync cable" search of ebay.

If you follow the links for this seller, you will find item 130058242111, a 7 piece kit that includes charger and sync cable for $11.99 Buy It Now plus $8.49 shipping. This includes the all-important anti-radiation shield.

At this point you are approaching the price of a Vx + cradle.

I happen to have a couple of these lying around, that I haven't gotten around to EBaying yet. I've sent you an e-mail about them.

If you have a freecycle chapter in your area, this is the kind of thing you'd be very likely to get for free if you ask...
