Charger/data cable for SG3

Can someone recommend a place to pick up a charger/data cable for the SG3.

Bought a non-OEM from DX and it charges ridiculously slow and can't keep a stable data connection. Also tried using the usb cable from my jawbone and it charges even slower and no data connection.
Thanks RFD for:

for high end phones you need a charger that outputs 2A. look at the technical specs on the charger itself.

a pc usb port only has 500mA (0.5A) so charges really slow.

no, 2A won't harm your phone. Your phone only draws what it can use and it won't be the full 2A. My G Note 2 pulls 1.3A when almost dead. takes about 3 hours to fully charge a 3100 mAh battery.

if i used a 0.5A charger, it would take the entire day.

here is an example :http://dx.com/p/2a-usb-5v-ac-charger-20 ... -plug-6872

however i wouldnt buy from DX. try to find a HP Touchpad charger. they are about $5 and come with a nice cable.
