Default Stir Plate Cell Phone Charger/Power Adapter

I'm looking to make a second stir plate and I need a cell phone charger or some power adapter with a 9-12V output. Unfortunately all of my chargers are ~5V, which won't cut it, so i'm going to have to buy one online. I found this website: http://www.cellphoneshop.net/celphontravc.html which has a ton of chargers organized by manufacturer. Instead of looking through each charger's specs, trying to find one that is greater than or equal to 9V, I was wondering if anyone knew off-hand of a specific cell phone charger that was 9V-12V which would be good for a stir plate.

Thanks!

I headed down to Radio Shack and purchased a universal portable power adapter which allows you to change the voltage. Don't know if you have a store near you but it may be worth a shot.

I bought mine on amazon. Switchable voltage. I think it was about 8 bucks.
