Can anyone recommend any of the Ebay PICkit2 clones?

Thanks for the feedback.

I use the ICP01. Be careful which version you are getting though - the one I got was 5V only, which was fine back when I was only working with PIC16 / PIC18, but will toast a PIC32. I modifed mine with a 3.3V regulator (good ol' 1117) so it only gives 3.3V out now.

It doesn't seem to work with MPLAB-X, but works beautifully with pic32prog, which is what I use mostly anyway.

I see now they are listing an ICP02v2 that supposedly has an adjustable VCC.

You could always just take the pickit2 schematics and firmware and build your own...
